This weekend, the Museo de los Ferrocarrileros (Railroad Museum) will host the Fourth Fair of Traditional Pulquerías, where the most emblematic establishments of Mexico City will meet to offer the “drink of the gods.”

The event will have the participation of 24 pulquerías and aims to promote the drink with a younger crowd.

In addition to tasting both natural pulque and cured flavors, the public will be able to attend talks from scientists and anthropologists about the ancestral drink.

Rock, jazz, ska, surf, huapango and Mexican folkloric music will also be offered in the Culture Tent, and there will be appearances from clowns, dancers and stand up comedy.

Entrance is free and the activities will start at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, during the unveiling of “The Roads of the Maguey and Pulque: Art to the Rescue,” a watercolors exhibition by Gonzalo Yanez Díaz.

The Railroad Museum is located to the north of Mexico City where the La Villa railway station used to be. The entrance is close to Cuahutemoc, Aquiles Serdán and Aragon La Villa (Aragón).
