I’ve visited here on many occasions and have always found the beer and food to be outstanding. No belgians on the last time I visited but they do have some decent rotating taps. Good place to visit when in ABQ.
I like this place a lot. First, it’s beautiful: the copper bar is my favorite part. The outdoor fire place is also nice.
It’s in the parking lot of a movie theatre....so a drink before or after (or both) is always an option.
Big fan of the green chile fondue.

After the last two times I am much more enthusiastic about coming here. The more specials they have on draft, the better - apparently, the fall months are that time. Very ambitious selection of fruit beers, browns, Belgians. Maybe execution isn’t always there, and maybe you have to time it just right to have a good special on tap... but when things work out, the place is money.
Let me start out that this place is more than I expected from a Micro Brewery. It was jammed pack on a Tuesday, I was impressed as I barely found a stool at the bar. Met one of the bartenders from the tap room location and he broke down a lot of the choices. It’s no secret I am a dark beer guy, but I was really digging their IPA and Belgium blonde. You can tell the brewer takes a lot of pride in his trade. I was able to sample the seven beers they had on tap in 4 oz glasses for only dollar each. Lets say my tab was far less than the cab ride from my hotel! There were servers walking around with bread that is any samplers delight. I wish they had a few more beers, but I guess that will give me another reason to come back. This place is a must stop if your in Albuquerque!
Very upscale for a "brewpub". Our meals were great and the beer was very good. Service could not have been any better. Other patron were even fun. I just would not feel comfortable in jeans and a t-shirt here. Highly recomend
Visited while in a town that there really isn’t much out to visit. Great atmosphere. Upscale resteraunt and bar. Food is unique and very good. Nice selection of beers. Cigar bar with leather chairs, fireplace and tvs. I’ll definitely be back when in town.
Sep 06: OK, this is the same location as the formerly-named Blue Corn Brewery and I believe is still owned by the same parent compant as the two Santa Fe Blue Corns ... but this is a step up. Newly remodeled from what I remember in the past, and with a definitely improved list of bigger and better beers, this place moved quickly up my list of places to stop for beer in the Albuquerque area. Very good.
This place was great. I never did get to try the food, but what a nice place. Toured the back and joined in a mini tasting with erway, Ted, Stan and others. Pretty fun day. Really cool place with some great beers.

Serious beer lovers should go during the day if you can. I’ve spent abundant enjoyable hours here. Food is very good, but somewhat pricey. The beer ranges from good to excellent. They always have 6 quality standards plus 3 or 4 specialty beers that are often very interesting. Talk to Ted or Jeff if you get a chance.

I work here now, so I don’t want my rating to affect anything. Hope to see you stop by sometime. Come in to the brewery and say hi.

On big plates.
But small portions.
Beer is good.
But hard to get.
Please bring me another glass.
Sometime this week.
