The bar seats about 20—it’s tiny and usually filled with regulars who are always happy to make room for one more. Four regular Chama River beers cover most of the bases for what you may want, and there are usually a couple of guest beers to round things out. (Alibi Staff, December 23, 2010)

Where else in town can you get braggot? Bad Ass specializes in big brews, and even its lighter offerings are pretty intense. Pretty much anything you get here is for slow sipping. Pints are $4, and the congenial bartenders will be happy to pour you 5-ounce samples (a buck apiece) that might include a Zombie IPA, a Belgian, a chocolate beer, an oatmeal stout, a coffee beer and a Scottish ale. They also offer sub sandwiches for the hungry tippler! (Alibi Staff, May 20, 2011)

Il Vicino’s thin-crusted, gourmet-topped pizzas are perennial favorites among Alibi readers, but the big salads are equally popular. Order at the register and a server brings the food to your table, making weekday lunches speedy. The open kitchen gives you something to stare at while you wait. Stop in for a quick lunch or a late afternoon microbrew at one of the patio tables. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

This used to be the Blue Corn Café and Brewery, but it's been rechristened as Chama River Brewing Company. Either way, the place has a great beer selection, including a bevy of their own brews. The food is approachable American stuff that, coincidentally, goes pretty damn well with beer. And, according to the 2007 BoB Restaurants poll, it even has the Best Bread Basket around. Say yes to yeast. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Il Vicino’s taproom has reopened with a vengeance at its new location. There is now plenty of room (both to sit and park), and you can chow on a sandwich or a big hot pretzel while you sip your Wet Mountain IPA. (Alibi Staff, April 14, 2011)

Jeff Erway presents a variety of beer styles brewed right on the premises, one of which will almost certainly fill your specific craving. In addition to the cold taps, one or two of the beers are often available woody and cellar-temperature from the cask. As you sip, play a game of pool upstairs, scratch under your well-behaved pet’s collar and chat with the always-friendly fellow beer-lovers. (Alibi Staff, January 20, 2011)

The focus at Nexus is on balanced, drinkable beers that don’t smash customers in the mouth by a hop assault. That being said, Nexus beat out stalwart area breweries at the 2011 NM IPA Challenge. There are nine styles featured on tap, including standouts IPA, ESB, cream and Belgian white. The brewery is attracting quite a following, both for the beer and as a “New Mexican soul food” gastropub. The menu offers specialties of Southern-fried po’boys and the delicious marriage of chicken and waffles. It’s just the place to take your corn-bread-and-Frito-pie-craving friends while still getting your craft beer fix. And there’s live music, too. Nexus has bands booked several nights a week.

Besides the late-night menus (the kitchen stays open until 11 p.m., but food isn’t the strength here) and 20-odd house-brewed beers (the Best Beer Selection, according to 2007’s BoB Restaurants poll), Kelly's has an enormous, dog-friendly patio that somehow manages to be packed to the elbows, lively and laid-back all at the same time. Snag a spot by the rails for the best people-watching in Nob Hill. Get the sweet potato fries. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Tractor draws the crowd by serving beer that’s come a long way since head brewer Dave Hargis took over more than a year ago. Today’s Tractor offers up nine taps, with five constants (IPA, red, honey wheat, pale ale and stout) and four rotating taps. The doppelbock is excellent, and Tractor seems to excel at the bock styles (it took first place at the 2011 Santa Fe’s BockFest). Tractor plans to introduce live music in the near future. There is no kitchen, but Albuquerque’s best food trucks are almost always parked right outside. (Alibi Staff, September 29, 2011)

Albuquerque - North Valley

Vegetarians will want to skip this one. The Steer features an array of very meaty dishes, from a locally raised beef hamburger to fried pork belly niblets dipped in powdered sugar. Oh, there’s a meatless salad or two available, but choosing one in lieu of the beef is tantamount to eating one of the fake burgers at Thai Vegan: pointless and disappointing. So sharpen those canine teeth and dispel any preconceptions you may have about eating light before you head up here. (Alibi Staff, March 12, 2014)

Order at the register and a server brings the food to your table, making weekday lunches speedy. The open kitchen gives you something to stare at while you wait. Stop in for a quick lunch or a late afternoon microbrew on the patio.

The building looks a bit like one of Dr. Frankenstein’s creations, with its recycled parts from old schools and the defunct Santa Fe Borders bookstore. Taos Brewing’s commitment to sharing with the community is also apparent in the high number of musical acts that play the outdoor and indoor stages on any given night. The beer helps in community relations, too, and the IPA is a safe bet for a bold drink. If hops aren’t your thing, Taos Brewing has a number of styles on tap including Kölsch and red and brown ales.

They take beer seriously here, and Turtle Mountain is one of the few places west of the river where you'll find house-brewed beer. Don't leave without trying the thin-crusted pizzas or a calzone. Oh, and order some root beer for the kids—that's made here, too.
