Went to both the tap room and restaraunt ; both were great. Tap room was not overly busy, and there were plenty of seats looking over the desert outside. The food was great at the restaraunt, too. Overall a great place to hang out or bring the family.
With this rate I’ve had a beer in all 50 states plus DC since retiring from the military in 2008 - 38 states this year alone. This is the quintessential brewery tap, jast a smalll wooden bar in the brewery itself, with staff coming and going, plus some tables upstairs. Extendive choice if beers available in a flight. Extremely friendly locals and staff. Great place.
So the beer is just average but the place is a lot of fun. It’s right off the freeway and there are even billboards pointing to it so it should be pretty easy to spot, though it’s on a side street off of the frontage road so pay attention. There is a patio out front and a porch on the second floor. There is some seating inside at the bar or upstairs by the pool table. Outside is a horseshoe set up along with some corn hole boards. You just have to get the bean bags from the counter.
The full flight is a lot of beer and it’s kind of expensive to try them all but it’s a great source for a lot of ticks if that’s what you’re looking for. They have several seasonals on and from the looks of it every week they do Small Batch Saturday where they release some pilot batch (it was an Alt when I was there) They have a board with room for 10 beers on it and they put the 11th one in the middle. They also had bottles of their kriek for sale but I wasn’t interested in a $20 bottle to take home. Actually, they have bottles of a lot of their stuff available to go. A couple of the beers were quite good but most were just decent.
The server was very nice. I wanted to buy a Chicken Killer shirt but they didn’t have the white one in L. Instead all they had was the pink one. Pass. Anyway, this is a fun place and I’d stop back in if in the area again.
nice place just a quick trip down cerrillos to get there. summertime it is pleasant, can relax outside. it can get crowded, but when it is off hgurs there is room either at the bar or upstairs. when it is crowded it is locals, and it is welcoming and a nice environment.
This is a great place. I’ve had trouble finding it in the past because it doesn’t look anything like your typical brewery/bar. Everything outside was covered with dirt and dust. This is the closest thing you’ll find to a farmhouse brewery in New Mexico. Unfortunately, they’re moving to the old Wolf Canyon location in Spring 2005. A very respectable beer selection included two different batches of barley wine on draught and in bottles, porter, red ale, pale ale, nut brown ale, wheat, and a "guest" IPA from Il Vicino. I look forward to visiting the new location after they move.
i like these guys. southern area outside of town, couple of buildings off of I-25 and away from anyone else. small taproom / bar area with 8 beers on tap and a sour in the bottle. small batch saturdays they put pro-am things on tap.
I love this brewery. They make outstanding beers. I enjoy the original location with their quirky little tasting room. I heard they were moving across the road to the old Wolf Canyon Brewpub ... hope they can make it last better than WCB did ... Top 2 in Santa Fe.
