Garage door opens to patio that is enclosed in winter and open with a view of Sandia Crest in warmer months. Smoking allowed on patio in summer :(
One TV at bar showing sports but fortunately music sound system is only audio. Levels compete with but donít drown out conversation. Crowded most every night after eight. Mostly 20-30-somethings, about 50/50 men/women.

This is a fun spot. Pretty much a college bar with a brewery in it. Itís not completely over run though, so you can still find a seat. They also have about a dozen house beers on including several seasonal beers. I had a glass of the Berlinerweisse but without syrup or fruit itís just a plain old Berliner. Also tried a sampler. Most of the beer isnít very good but itís tolerable and not loaded with flaws. The tractor stuff all over the restaurant is pretty funny but fits well with the college bar theme. Prices werenít bad and the server was nice. All around this place is just average.
