If you’re in need of a good conversation and a personalized sampling flight, Sidetrack is the best brewery to go to. The servers are personable and chatty, but if you’re feeling introspective or want a private conversation, take your drink and meal (the food is provided by local restaurants that they have on rotation) and head out to the gorgeous patio. The beer selection is always changing, so there’s always something new to try at this modern taproom.

Everyone’s a little Irish at this friendly place! Bring the kiddies, bring your grandpa—everyone else does (which means it can get a little crowded and noisy, but we love it anyway). The whole joint smells wonderfully like hot cereal and the brewery tanks are visible from the eating area. We recommend the perfect fish and chips paired with a pint o’ the Rye’t Side of Dublin. Sláinte!

This brewery has quite a following, both for the beer and as a “New Mexican soul food” gastropub. The menu offers specialties like New Orleans-style gumbo 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.

Canteen Brewhouse picks up where the Il Vacino Vassar taproom left off. The canteen is spacious, and so is its shaded patio filled with picnic benches—a comfortable spot to enjoy the brew, regular live music and a casual menu. There’s no pizza here, but there are satisfying sandwiches. As always, the ingredients are top-notch, the microbrews are award-winning, and the home-brewed root beer float is a real treat.

Bosque has expanded its robust brew selection to a taproom in the Nob Hill/University area. This location offers food and a sunny patio. The happy hour menu is a must, and the sandwiches are pretty great all around, especially the caprese and the Italian.
Albuquerque - North Valley
Whether it’s appetizers and beers with the buds, or a nice family dinner, Steel Bender has what you’re looking for. Asiago truffle fries? Yup. Green chile stew? Of course. House-ground beer brats? Yes, please! Wash it all down with a local wine, seasonal brew or house beer such as the Skull Bucket IPA.

Bosque Brewing is becoming one of the most popular breweries in the state thanks to their two locations in Albuquerque and one in Las Cruces. If you are in either of the two towns, trying Bosque Beers is a must. Their popularity didn’t happen just by coincidence: Their beer is the real deal. Even if you’re just wanting more than beer, Bosque has more than just regular bar food. Where was the last brewery you went to in New Mexico that served mussels. This place does it all.
Albuquerque - Old Town
Another brewery jostles for recognition in the crowded Albuquerque market place. This one, an expansion of a Portland, Ore. outfit, offers a tastefully appointed and classy dining area and a menu of pub-inspired gastro-delights like fish and chips, burgers and the like. As far as beer is concerned, check out the oatmeal stout or the Ghost Train IPA.

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 there too.
