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 very chill little tap room located on the famous Santa Fe Plaza with a patio overlooking the plaza. Often filled with locals looking to drink real beer and to have a good time. Service is always great and they will bring over food from a great pizza joint down the hall.
After a long hike, a friend and I went here and had a great time. The bartenders had great personality and were on the ball. Plenty of really good beer to choose from. They don’t have food themselves but work with a Pizza place in the same building and the pizza is really good. All the beers I had were really good.
This place should be rated a bit higher, in my opinion. Excellent space obscured from the the Santa Fe Plaza. A number of really solid beers on tap when I was there. Very comfortable atmosphere, and a helpful staff. easily the best place for beer in Santa Fe that I visited.
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+
Located in a place overlooking the plaza. Nice bar with plenty of seating, in and out. Food was ordered from a pizza shop next door and it was great. Beer is really solid, especially the India White Ale. Definitely would recommend.
love this place! It reminds me a little of the Chama River tap house in downtown Albuquerque. They have all the Marble beers that are brewed during the given time. I am rating food based on the AWESOME pizza place just down the hall from them in the "mall". The cool thing about this place is that you can just have a good time with your Girlfriend/wife in the town square and then enjoy some beers here at the evening.
Long narrow bar, extremely noisy and crowded when I arrived around 6:30 or 7:00 on a friday night. Nice lineup of their own beers. Extremely friendly service despite the crowds--the bartender poured me a taster without even being asked when I asked him about the base for their Reserve ale. Big points for that. Pours in all manner of sizes: 4 oz for 1.50, 10 oz for 3.50, 16 oz, 22 oz. Great to be able to order 10oz pours for the traveling beer geek interesting trying a few of their offerings.
And something really cool that I’ve never seen at a beer bar before, but that everyone should have. They had a huge flat screen TV showing BBC nature films: lions fighting with elephants, penguins huddling in the arctic winter, seals surfing, birds of paradise dancing, wolves chasing deer, the whole works. And to my surprise, this was far more popular than the football game on the other flatscreen. Lots of people watching -- intently -- and cheering on the various prey species as they ran for their lives. A very fun feature.
