“Great little brewery in the heart of Northern New Mexico”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2011

We've been to Blue Heron brewery several times, and their beers are really good. I love their Cascabel IPA - it's exactly what an IPA should taste like, nothing weird, just really good. My wife has had their red ale and it is also very tasty - she doesn't like hoppy beers and the red has a good balance of hops and malt. Their cheese/crackers/sausage appetizer plates are surprisingly really good. We were there on a Saturday and they had a live singer - country music, original songs. Their patio in the back is small, but very nice and comfortable. Stop there on your way up to Taos - it's worth it.
