This indoor-outdoor brewery is as cozy as it is fun. The bartenders are friendly and informative, and you’ll often find the owners working the taps with a smile. The identifying feature of the outdoor patio are metal towers stretching high above the building. Gaze up at them as you savor an American dark sour or Scarlet beh gose.

Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
How awesome is a distillery with both knockout drinks and a great small plate and entrée menu? It’s pretty darn awesome, which is why you’ll frequently find us sipping a cucumber-infused gin fizz at Hollow Spirits’ bar and sharing cassava fries and charcuterie with our homies.
Alibi recommends: Bloody Mary flight, gin fizz, avocado toast
Vibe: Casual and social: great place to bring a bunch of friends after work

The New Mexico grass-fed Holy Cow burger comes on a brioche bun, while the equally yummy ahi tuna sandwich, veggie club and dinner salads offer bovine-averse diners a larger selection. Beer and wine, shakes, malts and floats are available to complete the sacrament.

Marble Brewery

www.marblebrewery.com
Mon–Sat noon–midnight, Sun noon–10:30pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: DinnerOpen Late
Cuisine: Brewery
After admiring the expanded interior and hip industrial-style lighting, have an award-winning beer or three and wobble on over to whatever food truck is there (which you can find on their website). While the trucks stay until about 10pm, Marble is open ‘til midnight every night except Sunday. Listen to some live bands on the community patio every Saturday night, or grab a growler, six-pack or keg to go if you want to avoid the loyal following this Albuquerque favorite has gathered.

Sidetrack Brewing Company

413 Second Street SW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102
(505) 832-7183
sidetrackbrewing.net
Mon-Thur 3-11pm, Fri 3pm-midnight, Sat noon-midnight, Sun noon-10pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
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.

Wine.Dive

abqwinedive.com
Mon Closed, Tue-Wed 4-10pm, Thu-Sat 4-11pm, Sun 4-10pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: DinnerOpen Late
Cuisine: American
This cavernous space on 2nd and Gold might seem like an odd spot for a wine bar, but Wine.Dive is making it work with a killer menu and a unique, geographically diverse wine list. It’s a great place to go for an early dinner or to meet up with friends for a night out, as they have regular DJ nights and drink specials on weekends. It’s also a great spot for before or after you catch a movie at Century 14, as it’s right around the corner.
Alibi recommends: The Famille Perrin Côtes du Rhône, the cauliflower steak and the mix-and-match charcuterie
Vibe: A mix of dance club and casual wine bar.

Albuquerque - Far Northeast Heights

The Barley Room

5200 Eubank Blvd NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM 87111
(505) 332-0800
www.barleyroom.com
Mon-Sat: 11am-2am Sun: 11am-midnight (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: High Ridge (See Film Times)
The Barley Room is a watering hole in the far Northeast Heights that fills patrons up with live music, lots of libations and a surprisingly ample menu. Snack on bar-friendly fried things (say yes to the sweet potato fries!), or have a proper meal with burgers, salads, pasta, New Mexican dishes, and a few grilled meat and fish entrées. There’s a palpable sports bar feel to the place, but a diverse clientele keeps this bar/grill comfortable for just about everyone. The kitchen stays open until midnight every night; go ahead and linger.

www.geckosbar.com
Sun-Thrs: 11am-11pm Fri-Sat: 11am- midnight Bar hours: Mon-Sun: 11am- midnight (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
Gecko’s expanded with a popular Northeast Heights location that’s housed in a building that looks like a jukebox, for some reason. Even though it’s clear across town, you’ll still probably bump into folks you know as you’re sipping a wicked Bloody Mary and enjoying tidbits from the affordably priced tapas menu.

Il Vicino’s thin-crusted, gourmet-topped pizzas are perennial favorites among readers, but the house-brewed beers 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.

Mon-Fri: 11am-10pm Sat-Sun: 11:30am-10pm Winter Hours: Sun-Mon Noon to 9:00 PM (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Asian
This Asian-American eatery has a reputation for retro Pacific Rim decor and the clink of drinks with little umbrellas in them. If you're in the mood for East-meets-West fare like lettuce wraps, orange peel beef or Tokyo crispy tofu, then load up the Prius and take a drive down Paseo del Norte. You’ll also find a large selection of fine loose teas and more liquor than you can shake a limbo stick at. Have a yen for wine? Here it comes in white, red and plum.

Albuquerque - I-25 Corridor

Craft Republic

4301 The Lane at 25 NE (I-25 Corridor)
Albuquerque NM 87109
(505) 344-9430
Sun-Sat: 11am-2am (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
Formerly known as The Fox and Hound, Craft Republic remains true to typical sports bars: hip-hop music blasting, TVs blaring and pretty waitresses bustling. But one glance at the extensive menu is all it takes to clue you in that it is a fine restaurant, as well. There’s no shame here, fill your comfort food needs with everything from BBQ chipotle burgers to “The Dilemma:” a hand-battered crispy chicken sandwich with bacon, maple miso butter and a sunny-side up fried egg.

Cuisine: Mexican
Happy Hour!: 3:00pm - 7:00pm
The staff never judge you after your sixth or seventh taco or even when you ask for the relleno and tamale plate after. They even have a premier karoke system avaliable every Friday and Saturday night in their bar.

Meals Served: BrunchLunchDinner
Nearby Theater: Century Rio (See Film Times)
Chow down on “New Mexican soul food” and wash it all down with American Beer Festival and World Beer Cup-winning brews. The Imperial cream ale is crisp and smooth, the milk stout is rich and creamy. Not a beer person? Go for Black Mesa wines or Santa Fe Cider Works hard ciders.

Starr Brothers Brewing

Sun noon-10pm, Mon-Wed 11am-10pm, Thu-Sat 11am-11pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Nearby Theater: Century Rio (See Film Times)
This local brewery is a great spot for lunch, meet-ups or just taking a breather after work. Pair a juicy patty melt and truffle fries with a nice, dark Problem Child porter or a refreshingly hoppy Starrstruck IPA. Also show up for fun events like Brew Bees, soccer tournament watch parties and paint nights.
