Met local RBians ketchepillar and trkpro here for some very tasty beers, all within view of the brightening tanks. The place was packed with a good vibe, and still quick and friendly service, on a Sunday afternoon. Food trucks supply the grub. My second favorite stop in Albuquerque, after La Cumbre.
Man this place was jumping on a Wednesday night. Another brewery in a warehouse district but they did a good job of making it a good hang from food trucks, to the patio, to the live music. Very diverse crowd which is always a good sign. They had 12-14 on tap and what I had was pretty good. The food comes from Chama River which I didnt really dig but it somehow was better here. I’m surprised my score isn’t higher. I thought it was a pretty groovy place.
Love this place! Sitting outside on the patio in the sun, I really wished we were living here instead of Santa Fe! I’d be drinking here a lot...the inside space is also cool, just a big casual place with a long bar and lots of tables and utterly lacking pretension. Plus, the beers are great.
Perfect one-two punch with La Cumbre! Love the atmosphere here...a really good live band was playing when I arrived on a recent Saturday. The place is setup with large indoor and outdoor seating. The beers are great and priced reasonably (4oz, 10oz, 16oz, 22oz pours available...love it!). Favorites included specials...Hop Fudge Sunday, Mavericks on Parade, and regulars...Double IPA, Dang Pale Ale, India Pale Ale, and Oatmeal Stout. I met a great bunch of locals that I ended up hanging out with...all in all a great night at a great brewery. Beer may be better at La Cumbre (it is)...but definitely had more fun here that night!
Stopped by here on a beer tour of ABQ that my girlfriend promised me in a trade for attending her friend’s wedding in Las Cruces. Very busy on a Friday night and overall had some good beers (which are impressing me more and more these days). Friendly staff. My favorite stop in ABQ. Recommended.

Growler disponible avec une sélection assez varié. Ambiance libérale et conviviale. Localité un peu à l’écart.
A cool little place on the northeast side of downtown Albuquerque. Jeff Erway, who is formerly the head brewery at Chama River gave me a guided tour of this place. The place is run by Ted Rice, who oversees the brewing (fomerly the head brewer at chama before jeff took over). The beer is fantastic-I have always liked Teds "house" flavors in his beers. The Red could be the best sesson beer i have ever had!
This is probably my favorite brewpub in Albuquerque. A very relaxed, chill, blue collar sort of place. Fairly spacious outdoor seating which is absolutely packed on summer weekends when there is live music. The indoors features a long bar with a large TV and a smattering of booths, tables, and even a couch section. The beers here are absolutely fantastic - there is not a dud in the whole group (7 on when I was there, but all of them were also available in bottles). Unfortunately there weren’t many seasonal offerings, so there’s less new stuff for me to try, but the regulars are so awesome, that’s ok anyway. There is a mug club which looks like a great deal (can’t remember the specifics). There is a limited food menu (some appetizers like nachos and the like and a few sandwiches) which I haven’t tried yet, but looks good. Great atmosphere, very comfortable and relaxing, and there is even a game corner if one desires. I went to one of the live music events and it was pretty fun. If I end up moving here, I will be very happy to make this my local (and frequently visited) brewpub.
Nice ambience. Neighborhood (urban) vibe, close to downtown. Slow pace quickened quite a bit as happy hour forged on. equal number of flagships as seasonal. Not one, but two, food trucks available for nosh.

Yeah, why not? Their beer is pretty competent, bar is nice and large, and some well-selected guest taps. Not my favorite place in Albuquerque but a keeper. I expect the ambiance is even better at night. Their tap list isn’t Captain Ambitious, that’s why it gets sub-10.
