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.

Stopped in on a weekday afternoon. Located in a shopping area on the I-25 outer road but a stand-alone building. Nice and big and clean but not a lot of character. Good amount of taps; I think I counted 12 handles, with at least 5 rotators when we went. Service was friendly and pretty knowledgeable. Didnít eat. Prices were good. Beers were good but I had been spoiled by a couple one-off bottles before visiting. Worth a stop if you have a few days but wouldnít be my top recommendation in town.

Nice vibe here, spacious. Sports bar. Would never call this upscale, surprised so many ratings indicate that. Excellent service. Large bar area. A few of the beers (the IPAs in particular) are good.

Ambiance - nice, but nothing extraordinary. It was a nice restaurant.
Service - Excellent. Actually had a young waitress who could discuss beer.
Selection - 9 microbrews on tap, nothing beyond their own.
Food - What we had was good,
Value - Not overly priced but not a bargain by any means. Worth the price, though.

This place was great. I never did get to try the food, but what a nice place. Toured the back and joined in a mini tasting with erway, Ted, Stan and others. Pretty fun day. Really cool place with some great beers.

Strip mall type place, large bar on the left, restaurant on the right. Brewing equipment visible from the bar (extra point for atmosphere). Beers were ZoK. Food looked decent but I didnít eat.

Has a bit of a Western theme which makes sense given the location. A large rectangular bar, wrapped in copper, dominates the visuals. When I hear the word upscale, whatever that means, I think "overpriced and pretentious" and that fits here.They had 10 different beers on tap 6 regulars and 4 seasonals and I found most of them exceedingly mediocre. The same can be said about the food. The chili is spicy and flavorful but the fish portion of my fish and chips were bland and flavorless. The service wasnít anything to write home about. None of the bartenders seemed to know much about beer and they have these ridiculously small 8 oz. water glasses. I also wasnít impressed with their attempt to charge me with two entreeís. This may be among the best brewpubs by New Mexico standards but itís exceedingly average otherwise.

On big plates.
But small portions.
Beer is good.
But hard to get.
Please bring me another glass.
Sometime this week.
