Best root beer ever

We stopped in while vacationing after spending the day rafting the Rio Grande. The Rootbeer was absolutely amazing. We followed it with a nice sampling of handcrafted beers and enjoyed them all. We noticed this is where the locals live to hang as well. A nice group if people.

Family owned, great craft beers. Live local entertainment on weekends. Rinconada location easy access along the gorge highway when your travelling between Taos and Espanola. New Tap Room in Espanola has excellent food, also entertainment on weekends.

Although this place has good food, it not the best I have ever had. I went there for the beer and wine, in this case it is some of the best.

They could not fill my Growlers. They were out of Root Beer for my son's and they could not fill my Growlers due to some back draft system, was very disappointed.

If you're in the Taos New Mexico area, make sure to stop by and sample some beer or wine at Blue Heron. I had the IPA which was a little sweeter than most I've had which was nice, it didn't pack such an overwhelming punch that many IPAs do. My husband and the Pale Ale which was par for the... More

The write ups don't mention too much about breweries/wineries on the Lower road up to Taos. They are there and er stopped here. $10 Beer Flight is the way to go. I enjoyed Ladybug IPA. If you are driving too fast you will miss it and Happy Hour is 5-7. Ours began at 3! About 20 or so minute drive... More

Second time we have stopped off at their place in Espanola. Good beers on tap and great food - especially the pizza of the day. Their location in Espanola has been open just 6 months or so and their hours have changed (1:00pm - evening).

Blue Heron is a small local brewery. I enjoy going there for happy hours when they have music, usually local musicians with acoustic instruments. Seating is tight, and the audience is friendly. Blue Heron is located right on Highway 68 in Rinconada, NM.

Located directly across the street from the HQ of New Mexico River Adventure Service, this is the perfect place for a beer after rafting. Their craft beers are surprisingly good, and they sell a few local wines by the glass and some light snacks too.

I've been visiting Dixon since I was a young boy, so I was never quite old enough to truly enjoy all of the tastes of the Southwest until recently. The La Chiripada winery next to La Casita Guest House has always been a family favorite of ours since our visits in the late 1980s-2000s, so it was a lovely surprise... More
