bleeng (168) Seattle still not near Beersel., Washington | April 2, 2009
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.
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
Locate in a strip mall off the highway. Inviting interior, with dark wood and heavy patterned walls and carpet, but with a lot of natural light(at least during lunch). Service was good as was the beer and food. I had the IPA and Golden Lager. was introduced to the 3-4 beer limit here - most places in Albuquerque "suggest" you only have three beers and then leave. Not sure how a bar survives with this strategy - maybe it’s not enforced. Not sure, but I didn’t feel the need to push the limit here.
Stopped in on a weekday afternoon. Located in a shopping area on the I-25 outer road but a stand-alone building. Nice and big and clean but not a lot of character. Good amount of taps; I think I counted 12 handles, with at least 5 rotators when we went. Service was friendly and pretty knowledgeable. Didn’t eat. Prices were good. Beers were good but I had been spoiled by a couple one-off bottles before visiting. Worth a stop if you have a few days but wouldn’t be my top recommendation in town.
Originally went here a number of years back when erway was there. We had the full selection of beers, additional beer from the back and food. Everything was very good.
Second time the ambiance and overall enjoyment suffered because the personal touches were not there.
Ambiance - nice, but nothing extraordinary. It was a nice restaurant.
Service - Excellent. Actually had a young waitress who could discuss beer.
Selection - 9 microbrews on tap, nothing beyond their own.
Food - What we had was good,
Value - Not overly priced but not a bargain by any means. Worth the price, though.
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.
