Great Little Brewery with Great Beer and Wine

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... read 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

We stopped by after a rafting trip (they are located across the street), and it is a very small and cute place. They have a very small indoor seating area (4-5 tables), and very small outside patio area. It is quaint and you can sample the beer, and they do have a small wine collection. They have some basic food... More

We went on a Friday night and they had a great blue grass band playing outside under the canopy. Good beer and they also serve Vivac wines. Definitely worth a stop, see and taste.

We enjoyed a cold one after our raft trip, they are right across the street from New Mexico River Adventures! Very convenient. They also have live music in the evening.

We were so excited to find this little microbrewery across form the New Mexico River Adventures office. We walked over and tried a sampler. As an awesome bonus, there was a bluegrass band playing. Our best afternoon in NM!
