Staying one night in Albuquerque before going to El Paso for 2 weeks. Really nice place and much more upscale than I expeted. Had the crab cake which was pretty good and the truffle blue cheese fries which were average. 10 beer on tap. 6 regulars and 4 specials. The 2 IPAs and the DIPA I had were all very good. Nice atmosphere and a very large bar. Wish every town I visited had a place like this. Wish I could of met Erway while I there. I recommend this place to anybody who visits Alburquerque.

The best place in NM if you ask me. Ted Rice is a very friendly dude that respects people that like good beers. Tell him your with ratebeer and he will hook you up! his beers are always great. Very impressive place-good service, atmosphere and the food is exceptional! one of my favs all around!

Let me start out that this place is more than I expected from a Micro Brewery. It was jammed pack on a Tuesday, I was impressed as I barely found a stool at the bar. Met one of the bartenders from the tap room location and he broke down a lot of the choices. Itís no secret I am a dark beer guy, but I was really digging their IPA and Belgium blonde. You can tell the brewer takes a lot of pride in his trade. I was able to sample the seven beers they had on tap in 4 oz glasses for only dollar each. Lets say my tab was far less than the cab ride from my hotel! There were servers walking around with bread that is any samplers delight. I wish they had a few more beers, but I guess that will give me another reason to come back. This place is a must stop if your in Albuquerque!

Nice upscale (but unpretentious) brewpub with a good selection of above-average brews. Copper bar and outdoor fireplace seating is very comfy. Nice variety and quality of food. A bit pricey on some items, but not ridiculously so, given the quality.

After the last two times I am much more enthusiastic about coming here. The more specials they have on draft, the better - apparently, the fall months are that time. Very ambitious selection of fruit beers, browns, Belgians. Maybe execution isnít always there, and maybe you have to time it just right to have a good special on tap... but when things work out, the place is money.

Iíve visited here on many occasions and have always found the beer and food to be outstanding. No belgians on the last time I visited but they do have some decent rotating taps. Good place to visit when in ABQ.

Locate in a strip mall off the highway. Inviting interior, with dark wood and heavy patterned walls and carpet, but with a lot of natural light(at least during lunch). Service was good as was the beer and food. I had the IPA and Golden Lager. was introduced to the 3-4 beer limit here - most places in Albuquerque "suggest" you only have three beers and then leave. Not sure how a bar survives with this strategy - maybe itís not enforced. Not sure, but I didnít feel the need to push the limit here.

The big copper bar is awesome! The bar staff is friendly although not supremely knowledgeable, the menu is small with high prices but quality food is there including Kobe meatloaf. 10 taps of all house beer, 6 regular 4 seasonals an option for a 10 ounce pour is rather nice. Cool place in a hot town

Very upscale for a "brewpub". Our meals were great and the beer was very good. Service could not have been any better. Other patron were even fun. I just would not feel comfortable in jeans and a t-shirt here. Highly recomend
