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!
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.
This is just a straight up cool joint to hang out in. The decor is like a cross between an old barn, log cabin and boutique brewery. There’s been time and attention taken to set this place up, and it all works. The IPA was awesome and the fact that they offered a choice on Nitro was unexpected and greatly appreciated. The neighborhood seemed slightly shady to this visitor. But once you get inside the perimeter it’s all good. Nice TVs for viewing game 1 of the WS.
Such a great spot. Nice outdoor area for when the weather allows it, super-chill indoor bar and seating area with couches, game tables and even plugs for people getting some work done. Barkeeps are super-knowledgeable and helpful. One of my favorite brewery taprooms in all America.
I really liked this brewery. Every beer I tried was very good; some were great. I tried the Iron Horse Double IPA (really great), an India Pale Lager, and a Saisonette (a lower gravity session saison). I liked the atmosphere; a really laid back, friendly place, There is a good sized outdoor seating area with large shared picnic tables. They have taps outside, so you don’t need to go in to order a beer. It is animal friendly - there were plenty of dogs and even a pot-bellied pig when we were there. They don’t make food themselves, but food trucks park in front of the seating area outside. The truck that was there the night we went was great.
Pulled into Albuquerque after driving over from OKC, our second stop after rolling into town. Atmosphere was really cool, decent sized tap room with plenty of tables and a long bar. Decent amount of tables outside with the food truck, just a little too cold to sit out there. Quality was pretty high. Beers were in the correct glasses and the food was top notch. Service was mostly good. The one server was quite helpful while the other seemed a littler disinterested. Selection was really good. Lots of different beers to choose from across lots of different styles. Food was a mix, they have a few in house options while a food truck outside provides a bit more substance. I got the queso and chips which was perfect for what I was looking for. Prices were more than reasonable. Overall a very nice brewery taproom that I would definitely visit again.
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.
