Visited October 15, 2014.
Didnít realize that this is the only still-open location. Stopped in on the way out of town. Actually tried the night before but they were closed by that time. Itís a bit confusing if you come in on Water St since you have to walk all the way through the building to the pub which is actually on the next street over. Luckily there are signs through out the building that lead you there. Also, along the way there are plenty of trinket stores as well as a few art galleries. One of them was pretty neat. Lots of metal sculptures made of welded metal. All expensive as hell but it was neat looking.
The pub is very open even if you have to walk through a long hallway to get there. They have 10 house taps going which include 6 year round beers and 4 seasonals. One of the seasonals was a Berliner and they advertised trying it with the peach syrup but they were out. Oh, and the Berliner was $2.25 a pint, as it should be. The service was friendly and kept the waters coming. Not much else to say since this stop was only to try a quick tick of the Berliner and head out to Albuquerque. Certainly better bars in the area, like the Draft Station right upstairs, and it was dead during my visit, but theyíve got 10 house beers so there is that.
**edit: looks like the brewery tasting room is open but for whatever reason Iím not seeing it in the listing here.

Downtown location is less sports bar than the Cerrillos location. It is a bit more like a restaurant, though there is a bar area in the back. It was pretty empty on our visit. The beers I am not crazy about. If youíre downtown there are better places.

second floor interior mall vibe. main area is a restaurant, bar in the back, 4-5 taps, 1-2 seasonals/specials, i canít remember. but i do remember the beer being unmemorable. didnít eat. low ceilings and dark interior feels like a cave when i want to be outside.

Terrible strip mall location and feel, but the service was very friendly. Good place to watch sports--lots of TVs and fans. Beer was disappointing.

A rather large brewpub/restaurant in downtown Santa Fe. Wooden floors, very NM feel, with several restaurant areas and a large bar. The tap list includes 5-6 regulars and 2 seasonals (I found the regulars to be meh and the seasonals to be pretty good). The food menu is fairly extensive, pretty much all Mexican food (but good Mexican food). A chill place overall, but the beer was not good enough to make this a place I really care about returning to.

Sort of a weird setup to the place, a labyrinthine feel between disconnected rooms, and a very disconnected bar at the very back of the joint. Two televisions that donít necessarily line up well to serve all the seating angles. Selection was a standard brewpub list with the oddly similar seasonals of hefe and wit. Quality was here and there, some decent, some not so much. I enjoyed my fajitas, though they were pretty straightforward, and Iím no expert on fajitas. Pint prices a bit high for the gravity/hopping rates of the beers. I can admit that itís not a shining star, but I still enjoyed my time here.

This place was tough to find - crammed inside one of the arcades downtown - this place tries really hard to be an authentic New Mexican place, and kind of fails at it - decent selection of about 8 house-made beers - sadly, most of the ones I tried were not very good - the food was all "new mexican cuisine," which, upon trying the food, lead me to believe that this translate to "poorly made tex-mex" - the green chile made it better - I would pass on this place - go to the Marble Taproom instead.

ditto. and ima santa fe native. i will say every once in awhile they willhav a damn good seasonal impy stout or porter, but most of thier regular selections taste like homebrew. get green chile on authentic fare if you go here or you will be dissappointed with the food. there are several better places within a stones throw, look for a bar/pub on the very bottom floor of the same building, better selection of beer and better food.

A delightful place to stop for tasty beer and food. Our waiter was extremely and appropriately helpful, encouraging us to drink extra water because we were at a higher elevation, and offering very accurate beer descriptions. We opted for a sampler, which included seasonals - and no regrets. This is also where I learned that if you want both red and green sauce on your burrito, you ask for it "christmas" style.
