Small place in NE Albuquerque. The beers are fantastic. Iíve had a few at other bars around town and the two I had today measure up to the high standard that La Cumbre has set. Friendly service and friendly patrons. The mug club is a great deal and Iím likely to join soon. An enjoyable place and Iím sure to be back. This is definitely my home for good beer in Albuquerque.

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.

Jeff has done a great job with the place. Great atmosphere, people, beer, etc. Itís got it all, except parking. The stout and IPA improve with each batch (and were damn good to begin with). Best tap room/brewpub/bar in town.

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!

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.

Great ambiance... Feels like a very nice mix b/w American industrial brewery meets traditional british pub. A little on the bright side, but as I enjoy drinking some local brew while doing my studying, no complaints here. Upstairs is a pool table. However, I would KILL for a dartboard here! The people here are great; always packed. And the brews are likely the best quality and variety in NM. Thereís something for everyone here.

Visited on opening day, already had a great crowd, great service, and great, awesome beers. Their Elevated IPA is a stand-out regular, although I wouldnít hesitate to enjoy any of their regular or rotating brews. Located within a short distance of 3 other excellent breweries, it stands out as a dedicated taproom with food only available from the regular food truck out front (you cannot order something bad, itís all delicious). The building itself is a yellow-painted corrugated metal affair with limited parking (on-street parking is your only hope, DO NOT park in adjacent lots) in an industrial/construction supplies neighborhood. More than a dozen bar stools, a decent amount of high-top tables, and another room with more traditional seating/tables, with a second-floor pool table in a room adorned with dark wood walls and trim (the former office of a local construction company owner, rumored to have ties to the mob). Hands down the best beers ABQ, great service and you may even be chatting to the owner if you sit at the bar to enjoy your brew. A must-visit.

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!
