Nice place overlooking the plaza. Parking is tough, circled three times then parked in a lot. Beers were solid. Pizzas looked a bit odd and yuppyish, but I didn’t try them. Decent place.

full of people on a rainy friday night. something interesting like a rye pale ale and an india pale ale and a double india pale ale and an imperial red ale on draught, for real. pizza was badass. one contained a varied assortment of seafood and contained truffle oil which pleased me greatly. company was welcome and warm and cherished.
This is just a few blocks from the plaza and the downtown area. It’s hidden in a larger building with an unpaved parking lot behind it, you have to trust the map for this one. Inside is a long narrow room with the bar on the right and a couple of tables on the left.
They have most of the Marble regular beers on tap but not a whole lot of seasonal or one-off beers. That said they did have one special beer on (something called Rescue Craft Draft) and they had a "double white" which I don’t think is year round. They do offer flights so that helps if you’ve never had Marble before but since they are so common in NM it’s more likely that you’ll just grab a pint of something. I wasn’t a fan of the double IPA but I liked the barleywine OK.
They have tamales which were pretty good, so I guess that counts as food. The server was friendly. The patrons were pretty much just keeping to themselves, not much conversation going on. It seems like they’ve turned this into a dive bar. Oh well. Also, at the end of the counter is a fridge with bottles in it that you can take to go. Prices were OK on pints (and tamales) but the flight at $11 for 6 beers was a little steep.
Prime real estate, looking down onto the Santa Fe plaza with an awesome view of the historic buildings. Patio. Good service. Location means never empty. Pizza is pretty good, and so are the beers.

Not a brewpub per se, just a taproom. The beer comes up on Tuesdays, so that is the time to grab the latest seasonals. The beers at Marble are generally very good and there are a lot on tap at any given time. Food comes from nearby pizza place. Patio overlooks the Plaza, which is a big plus. It is also one of the more casual places in town, a little less insular than some other brewpubs. And the growlers are cheap. Pretty much the best place in Santa Fe for a beer geek.
You wouldn’t think it from the outside, but this is a very nice place. It’s a coffee shop/tasting room/ restaurant. There is an outside deck overlooking downtown Santa Fe and a separate room featuring comfy seats, shuffle board and a TV. The beers here are stellar. A good variety was also available. I wish I was hungry because they have an awesome pizza menu with toppings like smoked duck and prosciutto. This was one of my favorite stops on my journey.
A cool small little place near downtown Santa Fe. A tight area but the space is used well with a bar on one wall and tables on the other and a nice feel. Service was alright though only one person was working a Friday night and they were a bit overwhelmed. There were 12 beers available on tap with samplers possible and 2 beers in bottle, but they were only for mug club members... Prices were fine and thought it was a nice place for a beer.
Came in here on a quiet Sunday night in Santa Fe. In the upper level of a shopping center, with a deck that faces the Plaza. Couldn’t be a more central location. Modern decor. Service was so nice. One guy working but he was a dynamo. Told us to have a seat and have us table service. Then came and talked to us later when he had a minute. They had 6 regulars and 8 rotators. Really good stuff, too. I had no idea this brewer was doing such great stuff. Wow. No beer brewed here but a perfect taproom for the Albuquerque-based brewer. A must-visit in Santa Fe (probably the only must unless you are here long enough to do more).

Located in an indoor mall in downtown Santa Fe. It’s a bit tricky to find but well worth the visit. The service and beers were outstanding. If you can’t make it to the ABQ location, definitely stop in here for some fantastic brews. On another note, the shitters are down a dark hall at the other end of the mall, fail. Shitters: D+
Small brewery tap room on the third floor of one of the downtown "arcades" - seating for about 15-20 inside, plus another 8-10 on the patio overlooking the plaza - the perfect place to grab some beers while the other members of your family are wandering the mall-gasm that is downtown Santa Fe - about 10 Marble brews on tap - sadly, I was only able to stick around to try three half-pints - the place seemed frequented by locals, so it was kind of cool to be away from the rest of the tourists - no food, but, as stated already, they will order pizza for you - really enjoyed the place, aside from the bartender - he was nice enough, but when I ordered my first beer, he failed to bring me my change (it was less than one dollar, but still) - I fully intended to tip him, but perhaps, since I was obviously a tourist, he took it upon himself to take a tip for himself? - not sure if it was that or absentmindedness, but either way, it pissed me off - he was otherwise attentive - still, a great little place.
