It's definitely worth finding. There's actually a few other breweries near here but il Vicino has the best patio in the neighborhood. It's a bright sunshiney spot to have a daytime beer and is quiet and out of the way so it's a perfect 2nd date spot, when you want somewhere fun but still intimate enough to talk. They have a good selection of rotating beers and all the regulars are super nice and helpful.
I'm a wheat beer fan but I really like their Wet Mountain IPA. It's really smooth and not as intimidating as some of the other local options. It goes great with their sandwiches.

Taking it to the source here… This is the brewery for all Il Vicino locations in New Mexico, from what I understand. While the chain is known for their pizzas this location, ironically enough, only has a sandwich bar. A meat-centric sandwich bar, which is fine if that’s your thing. I didn’t eat here, tho, so I can’t comment on the food. The service, however, was excellent. I went around dinnertime and found a seat at the bar. I had a wonderful time talking with the servers about some of the beers they had on tap and found the price a surprise. These were both constants during my Albuquerque visit, by the way—great service and low prices. Really enjoyed the vibe here. Missed out on the cask conditioned beers (I think they’re just Wednesdays and Fridays) but found their house beers to be solid.

This is our favorite brewery in town! The Beer is "to-die-for!" Hubby likes IPA and this is his favorite (and he has had lots of them from all over the country). I am a Brown drinker in the cold weather and Hefeweizen in the summer - Il Vicinos' is SO refreshing!!
This location just re-opened recently after building a new joint a mile south of the old place. We always sit on the patio and our kids love it too. Love the Beer Sponge, but the rest of the Deli stuff is a bit pricey and not all the spectacular.
