Yellow and beige walls, plenty of windows and good lighting. Purple ducting and ceiling, grey concrete floor. Half-dozen tall tables and equal number of 4-top short tables. View into 7-bbl copper-clad Pub brewhouse. Three silent flat-screen TV in corners showing sports, beer art on walls. Mellow CD (pop) tunes w/o DJs.Handicapped accessible. No happy hour. Three (3) beer limit. Mug Club at $28 initially and $35 later buys 20oz for a $4 pint. Designated guest brew at $2.50 / pint. House beers $5 20oz, $4 16oz, $3 10oz.

The beers I tried here were all decent. I tried an IPA, a Rye Pale Ale, and a Chocolate Porter. The porter was my favorite of the lot. It is a nice, small, casual place in a warehouse type building Ė garage doors. There is a fairly good sized outside seating area. We saw the place on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives before coming here. The food was quite good. I had an excellent chopped pork sandwich and my wife had some really good fish tacos. The food is a combination soul food and New Mexican fair.

Not the best brews in town (but not bad, theyíre totally drinkable) but who cares because they have the best fried chicken Iíve ever tasted.

Man was this place a disappointment! Forget about the confused decor which has been described as both diner-like and like a tacky wine bar. (Ironically theyíre both right. ) Forget about the friendly but overbearing service. Forget about the ridiculously expensive taster prices. ($10 for 4 5 ounce samples is the definition of greed especially considering its double the price of what La Cumbre charges. ) In the end the beers the thing and the beer here was a big miss. It ranged from Eh! To Meh! With the chocolate porter being the biggest miss. Didnít eat any of the food because frankly I couldnít wait to leave.

I was pleasantly suprised by this place. The service was fantastic-everybody was friendly and the bartender/brewer hooked me up with a couple free samples. Also, the food was decent pubgrub. On warmer days, i would be cool to be outside on the patio. Overall, i would say that even though this is a decent place, I would go to The "fab 4" first before this (La Cumbre, Marble, Chama river and IL Vicinio).

The local RB crew said the fried chicken is awesome here, and they were not lyin. Possibly the best brewpub food Iíve tried. The beers were OK. Staff were great, and generous with thr samples. Good place to start brewery hopping, the chicken made for a perfect base.

Looks like a diner inside, and actually they serve some good food you might find in one. Good service and the beers were decent. Can be tough to get in and out of due to the traffic on Pan American road.

A surprisingly friendly neighborhood cafe in a warehouse zone. I liked this place--it had a warm and friendly feel. Beers are middling but the soul food/New Mexican fusion menu is a nice touch (tho we had eaten and not hungry enough to snack) and reflects the ownerís unique character. Eats are cheap too, and there is a large patio.

The atmosphere for me seemed just a bit too trendy with some pop jazz in the background and a bar area more reminiscent of a tacky wine bar than a brewpub. Iím sure the newness didnít help, but just my impressions in any case, they probably wonít dissuade you from trying it out. Beer line up was solid for a brewpub, a wide range of offerings if nothing too adventuresome. Outside of the IPA, however, I was fairly underwhelmed, particularly for Albuquerque/NM, which just reinforced my thoughts that this was an establishment trying to capitalize on the craft beer boom rather than one opening its doors for the sake of the beer itself. The huge positive, however, was the plate of pulled pork sliders. Way beyond said dish at your average brewpub (or tacky wine bar), delicately sauced and seasoned, and more pounded than pulled, with vegetables and the like. Iím probably exaggerating the atmospheric concerns a bit, but the beer didnít do enough to completely sway them.

This is a new brewpub in Albuquerque and it has the look of a new place. There is a fair amount of outdoor patio seating with a small indoor pub. With the new furniture and decorations it comes across as sort of a bar-cafe - small tables, paintings on the wall, music. The beer menu is rather large with a wide variety of offerings including some not often seen (ie cream ale, scottish ale, etc). The beers themselves were hit or miss - the IPA and stout were good, the cream ale and ESB were not. So there is some inconsistency. The food menu is fairly short and mostly includes appetizers/pub food (mostly New Mexican style). We split the pulled pork sliders, which were great. Overall I enjoyed this place and really the only negative is that I did not like all the beers. But I would certainly come back as they do have a number of styles and the food is tasty and cheap.
