Closed for taxpayer-funded renovation for an absurdly long period - summer/fall 2010.

There is no reason to patronize this bar unless you want a quick beer while waiting for your flight. There is NO microbrew; the most exotic beer available was Shiner Bock. Food was chips & salsa.

Nice for an airport bar. The Route 66 IPA was good, and the Greek Salad was satisfying. Take it out of the airport this place wouldnít stand a chance.

its in an airport, so its overpriced, crowded and noisy with so-so service. that said, they have a decent selection and are the only place to get anything decent at the sunport. they do have a stout that is brewed for them that is pretty decent, and great at 8 am! def worth a try! the food is meh, overpriced typical airport stuff, nothing great, but more edible than most places in there. overall worth a stop if you got 15 mins till boarding.

The name is a bit miss leading, since there isnít an actual Microbrewery there. They do howwever make up for this with a lot of local micros. The recently added Santa Fe to the already vast NM micros. I did have an over priced omelet, but after my flight was delayed the chicken wings made up for it. The servers seemed cool and knowledge was okay. I was able to get my first beer at 7am so unless its Sunday no issues there. Iím sure if I have the time and am passing through again, iíll try another or two.

From notes 10/2006. Since Albuquerque is where I live, of course I will be checking this place out while waiting at the airport to fly out. The service was fine, and the beer collection is okay. They had New Belgiumís 1554 on tap, which was the most interesting. They had four brews of their own and the one I tried (the amber) was mediocre I felt. I was eating breakfast and had an omelet which was mediocre as well. The only thing I would stop by for again is the 1554 or some other interesting beer they might happen to bring in. Otherwise, I will pass in the future.

Question: What time are you allowed to consume alcohol here? Answer: 7am to 2am. I like this place already. Server was nice and fast, she offered samples too. There are 20 taps, but there is nothing interesting unless you havenít had the local NM brews. Worth the stop, even if it was 8:30 in the morning. There is food, but I didnít have any.

I lived in ABQ 99-02 and came thru here all the time ... believe it or not, one of the best beer bars in ABQ is right here in the airport. Rio Grande Brewing brews about 3-4 beers under a "Route 66" label for these guys, plus they have a quality lineup of "microbrews" on line for the friendly traveler ... the bartender told one customer while I visited in Sep 06, "We donít have any Bud or Coors products, this is a microbrewery ..." ... OK, theyre not really a brewery, and they kinda do have Bud products (Widmer, Redhook) and Coors products (Blue Moon) and they have Miller Lite on tap. But the other 17 taps were generally good local (Isotopes, Sierra Blanca) and decent regionals (Sam Adams, Sierra Nevada). Fly into ABQ just to have a beer!
