Last stop of the night, for dinner. This is in a busy shopping center but there weren’t a whole lot of people in this particular establishment during my visit. It’s definitely more of a restaurant but it’s obvious that you’re sitting in the middle of a brewery. The tanks are visible right when you walk in and there is a stack of barrels next to the hostess podium.
Between the decent food and the fact that they were showing the Niner game I could have enjoyed this place but the service was lousy and the beer isn’t great. My New Mexican Shepherd’s Pie was good; basically a slightly better version of nachos. The service was slow and the server had a really bad attitude. This alone would keep me from ever going back but since the beer is just alright and the food is something I can find anywhere around New Mexico I feel confident that I wont be returning.
I had dinner this time and thought the enchiladas were good but nothing to write home about. It’s a typical brewery / restaurant with decent beers. Shitters: B-

Sports bar atmosphere, fitting the strip mall location. There are two or three seasonals plus a selection of regulars. I wasn’t nuts about any of them, save the IPA, but even that is not the best in town. Service was friendly, and this location is the only beer place in that part of town so that also has an appeal.
more like a chiles than a brewery. most of the beers are ’meh’, once ina while they have a half decent seasonal. a decent place to get small kegs for shindigs. food is standard new mexican fare, get something with green chile on it. sit at the bar if you want to consume liquor, service is ’meh’. some good tequillas though.
If you are in santa fe, this is where you go for local beer. the food is fine, there are several choices of beer on tap, at least two of which were much better than average. The server kindly reminded us to stay hydrated because of the altitude, and brought plenty of ice water.
