Staff was very helpful here - multiple people came up to me just to chat, all had good suggestions. Selection is limited only by New Mexico’s odd import rules. Decent amount of local and Colorado stuff.

Decent selection if you’re driving from Oklahoma. Was able to find new big beer releases, in fact they had many cases of each. Bottles in coolers. Reasonable prices. Decent neighborhood, easy to find and park at.b
As the name indicates the emphasis of the store is wine. The room on the left is all wine as us the room in the back.90% of The beer is along the wall in the coolers. They have the usual selection of local, California, and Colorado craft with a few seasonals, a couple of Mikellers and nogne, an average Belgian selection and a small pick six selection. Of course on a Friday night all the action is in the beer selection and they had a floater helping out with questions. Probably one of the best in the state but average on a national level.
Stopped in during my swing through New Mexico. A store in a re-purposed building that has wine in one room and the rest in another. Service was fine, though they were not willing to let me use their restroom despite my large purchase. Knowing that New Mexico does not have great distribution the selection was solid and the prices fair. From what I can tell it is a class shop.
This appears to be the best beer store in NM (a state that does not get a wide distribution). Lots of local beers, including NM locals, plus Deschutes, Odells (regulars and also Woodcut), New Belgium, Wasatch, Left Hand, Full Sail, Big Sky, Avery, etc. Also had a few international beers (Mikkeller, Struise, Liefmans, some others I can’t remember right now). Bottom line, this place gets the most beers possible to get in NM. Great prices on 12 packs and other good bargains ($10 for 3 Full Sail bombers!). It’s the place to go in Albuquerque for bottled beers. Also, if you’re interested, they have a very extensive wine collection.

the best beer store in Albuquerque. Great staff that are very helpful and know alot about good brews. They have a great selection including Left hand, Rogue, Avery, Stone, New Belgium, Full sail, and many hard to find local selections. A GREAT store! I love this place! Always ask for Karl-he will hook you up and he is very knowledgeable of all the beers offered in NM. if you EVER go through Albuquerque, please go to this place
Wow! That would have been the simpliest way to sum this place up. The staff was extreamly helpful. Since I don’t get to the states much these days, they made recommendations of beers I need to try in my stay in NM. They also gave me personal insite into many of their favorites. The selection was very exciting, but that could because I haven’t seen these beers in Europe. Again I wish I had time to buy some 4 or 6 packs. If I am ever back this way I am will not miss out on another stop here and neither should any of you!

Will go again in the 505. They seem to have their selection on lock: found Chocolate Indulgence, Paradox 009, the Yetis, some good Harvests and Pales. Solidly above the average liquor store.
First place we stopped on the way into Albuquerque. Not the best looking place from the outside thanks to the bard on the windows and doors but it is fine once you are inside. Feels much bigger on the inside than it appears on the outside. Quality is solid, lots of locals and plenty of beers from the west coast as well. Service was awesome. The guys behind the bar were really helpful and offered some suggestions one what I should get. Selection was pretty good, a bit small for the space but they had plenty of solid offerings to choose from. Prices where more than reasonable. Overall a really solid bottle shop that I would defiantly return to if I was in the area.
