Best micro brew IPA I have had to date. Cajun chicken salad was excellent. A simple decor establishment, but a good place to hang out with friends, casual. I will be going back for their house beer again soon.

The beer flight is expensive for what you get. You are better off getting a beer and asking for samples to taste others. Beer is really good though. The fried chicken was amazing and perfectly cooked, not greasy at all. Mashed potatoes and collared greens were very good as well. Service was very good and fast. We will definitely be... More

Happy to hear we'll get to see you again! We know it's a little more expensive to get the flights, but keep in mind it's pretty standard for a brewery to do it that way -- it's sort of like buying in bulk at a store versus buying smaller quantities. Glad you enjoyed! See you next time, Ken More

I found this restaurant on the http://www.visitalbuquerque.org/ web site. I had the 4 beer flight (5 oz each) for $10. The Red Ale and Cream Ale were good but nothing special. The Scottish ale was really good and the Chocolate Stout was a great roasted malt flavor but not the chocolate finish that you get with most chocolate beers. The... More

Since my prior review the quality of the beer has improved tremendously, and the food is still great. We sometimes fill a growler now. IPA, Scottish, and special Blackberry Hefeweizen all top notch.

Had a great selection of craft brews (Chocolate stout and white ale on this trip), there is a selection for almost everyone! Food was great, I got the fish tacos, normally fish tacos have a couple of fish strips, not here there is almost a whole fillet! I also got a small green chile "stew" with the pulled pork as... More

Pretty good beers, the best I had while in town. The food is more Southern comfort food and *yuck* New Mexican. I recommend the beers.

Sorry the New Mexican flavors aren't your style, but I'm glad to know you like the beers! Be sure to let us know next time if you want to grab a bite and we'll be happy to recommend something that you might like better. All the best, Ken More

This place always has great food, from the soul burger with x-mas chile to the fried chicken and waffles with bacon, yumm! The beer is getting much better now that they have replaced the old brewer manuel (who was very unpleasant to talk to and had a 'know-it-all' attitude) with a brewer who is wonderful to talk to and very...

After hearing about this place from co-workers and wanting something "new" we went on a rainy Saturday afternoon and the place was packed.
