Taproom up front, brewery in the back. Beers were the best I had in Albuquerque & Sante Fe. Great vibe, friendly atmosphere. Jeff is a terrific host. Meeting up with the RateBeer crowd and friends here over a bunch of great beers was definitely the highlight of my New Mexico trip!

Located in what looks like an old warehouse. Well it is an old warehouse bu in the inside is a modern, comfortable pub that bigger than it first looks. Even in the early afternoon they had a solid crowd in the bar. They had 9 things on tap which ranged from good to fantastic. The bartender was someone who,loved hanging out in the place so much he thought it would be fun to work there which gave him passion for beer and the brewery. Definielty one of the highlights of my trip.

Excellent tap room! Large and comfortable, lots of seating. I could bring my computer and work here! And great, great beers.

Fairly big place - bigger than I was expecting. Lots of great brews on tap. Tasted a few, had a pint. Lots of people were coming in for growlers. The parking is probably an issue, as there arenít many spots at the building itself. They donít have a kitchen. But Erwayís making some nice stuff and this should be on the list of for any beer lover passing through town.

This was an awesome stop! On a Friday afternoon it was lively. Itís a two story pub with brewerania all over. A bar, tables and foosball are downstairs. Upstairs is a pool table and a comfy couch. They had a smoked beer, major props. The IPA is absolutely top notch as well. They do growler fills and have cans of the IPA to go. No food whatsoever.

Out in the middle of a creepy industrial park with tow lots and god knows what else- typical brewery real estate. No food here but thankfully has a symbiotic relationship with a high quality food truck that brings the food for you into the brewery. Pretty boss set up. Service was quick, efficient, friendly. Tasting flight here is clearly set up by Ratebeerian (the brewer/owner is a ratebeer veteran so go figure). Flight has all of the beers on tap labeled correctly. This is a mega tasting flight so get ready. 14 beers! Beer quality is above average to very high for some of the hoppier stuff. Lively, crowded place. Clearly Albuquerque needed a brewery and erway delivers!

Stopped in around 5 on a weekday and it was pretty crowded. Located in an industrial area in the NE quadrant. No food in house but food trucks outside. Sat at the bar. Surprisingly warm and homey for the exterior and area. Nice bartenders; bearded dudes or super cute gals. I think I counted 12 taps and menu slots. 11 were on and it seemed like 4 or so were permanent. Beers were amazing. Had already been really impressed with a couple NM brewers but this one takes the cake. Prices were good. No complaints here. The must-visit place for Albuquerque.

Update 1/21/2012. I have now visited this brewery a few times and it has made a lot of improvement from a great brewery to an outstanding brewery. Not only do they make a world class IPA (with a GABF gold to boot), the quality and complexity of their seasonals has really expanded. On my most recent visit, they had a lighter version of the IPA, coffee stout, red rye ale, and spiced winter ale, and all were excellent. They also have live music twice a week, and the group I happened to catch was very talented. The place was packed on a Wednesday night. La Cumbre has emerged from one of the best ABQ breweries to (IMO) the best brewery in Albuquerque. It is a highly recommended stop.

A small tap-only brewery in a warehouse district of Albuquerque. It has an underground feeling to it with pipes on the ceiling and a darker interior. Lots of empty bottles all around the place. There is a small bar which was completely full once we got there; also a bunch of wooden tables. There were a number of beers on tap (4-5 regulars and 3-4 seasonals plus 3-4 guest taps). Their seasonals appear to feature some interesting styles (impy while I was there). If you plan on becoming a regular here they have a great mug club ($20 gets you 22 oz pours for $4, a free growler and fill of your choice, and subsequent $1 off every growler fill). Their IPA is great and Iíd definitely keep coming back just for that!

Yet another Ratebeerian opens a brewery, or own Erway! I have known him for many years and he is nothing short of a pleasant, easy going guy. His beers are great! The atmosphere here is very organic-no frills, almost "hippie" -ish, but not in a bad way. This IS A MUST STOP if your in Albuquerque! Im very happy to see this city turn into such a beer mecca. Good things are going on at the foot of the Sandia Mts!

Love this place. A bit out of the way for visitors without a rental, but it would be worth it to cab it. Awesome space and a hell of a selection on tap. Expect this place to be busy, but itís worth it. Jeff Erway is the man.
