Dropped in here for a bite during world cup soccer. Nice large screen TVs and excellent food. Would eat here again.

Phillip was our server and very efficient. We enjoyed the IPA and Cream Ale. Fish tacos very tasty. The best was the biscuit bread pudding with the their Scottish ale syrup. The bread pudding serving was more than enough for 2 people. Good value for drink and food.

Trust that Phillip's going to hear about your compliments! Thanks again for grabbing a bite and some brews with us while you were in town. Hope you'll let us see you again for some more tacos and Biscuit Bread Pudding if you ever pass through ABQ again. Have a safe trip back, Ken More

What a disappointment. Service was probably one of the worst that I have had in a long time, 40 minutes and still no food. Not a family friendly place. Families don't take your kids.

This is far from the kind of review that we hope to receive, and I sincerely apologize that you had this experience. We are a brewery, but we want you to feel comfortable bringing the whole family here nonetheless. As for the service, your food shouldn't take that long even at peak times. I wish I had more details about... More

Finally checked out this brewery and restaurant that we pass on 25, with our kids ages 7 & 10. We went for an early dinner. I enjoy low IBU (low hoppiness) beers and they had 2 great ones, cream and white. Chicken wings were nicely cooked, juicy and tasty, both the "naked" with buffalo sauce and the "southern fried" which... More

I think we want you back -- just kidding, we definitely do. Thanks so much for finally coming in with the family, Carolyn! It sounds like everyone had a great time, which is exactly what I want to to hear. Enjoy your growler! We'll be here when you run out. All the best, Ken More

Celebrated Father's Day with some friends by having lunch at Nexus. We got there around 1130, before the afternoon crowds. We chose to sit on the outdoor covered patio. Service was quick, had one of their red ales and discovered my Nexus membership ($40 first yr-get free groller and discounts on beer/food) had expired so renewed for $20 and got... More

This place rocks! Some of the best food we've had in Abq in quite a while, and we are foodies. Not a large restaurant/sports bar-probably because they want it that way to maintain the quality. Everything we sampled today was delicious...the beer battered fries are the best I've had in any restaurant anywhere...light and crunchy on the outside, moist and... More

It's always such a pleasure to get great feedback from self-identified foodies, Anthony! This is the kind of review that reminds us why we love what we do. I can't wait to pass your compliments on to the kitchen. We'll look forward to seeing you back soon for more menu exploration and brews! Sincerely, Ken More

This brew pub is tucked behind a window company, but within walking distance from the Best Western. Their few brews are varied and tasty, but the real experience is the excellent food. Best pub food we have found in a long time. The seating arrangements are varied, bar/tall tables, and seating both inside and out.

Limited menu. Chicken sandwich is comparable to Wendy's, not bad. Crowded on a Sunday afternoon. Outdoor patio was enclosed due to rain resulting in poor ventilation and terrible smell. Ladies bathroom was not maintained. Service was super friendly, attentive and fast. Beer was average.

Hi, Millie! Sorry to hear that your experience as a whole wasn't the best. It sounds like your server knocked it out of the park for you, which is awesome to hear, but I apologize that there was an issue with the restroom and that the patio wasn't as comfortable as it usually is. Hopefully you'll return and give us... More

This little hole-in-the-wall sports bar/brewpub has an odd menu that combines down home cookin' with New Mexican fare, plus some other odds and ends. Remarkably, the combination seems to work; both my green chile stew and my wife's chicken and waffle were satisfying. Service was friendly and prompt, and while the sports-bar-style interior was a bit noisy for my personal... More
