Susan's Fine Wine and Spirits in Santa Fe, NM is another great place to get some hard to find beers, especially in town! Went in last time with my uncle woody after we had been at Santa Fe Brewing Company to pick up some kickin chickin, the bourbon barrel aged barleywine that SFBC makes. Not only did i get a bunch of that, but they had a ton of good stuff, both domestic and import. Picked up a few things by brewdog, including paradox and tokyo, nogne 0, goose island, and some smaller colorado breweries i had never heard of before. The owner, at least i think she was, was very polite and answered my questions without having to go look things up in the back, always a good sign of a shop when the people that work there actually know what they are talking about. Will be going there again next time i'm back in NM!

Spent some money in here on 2 Feb 2011 while the kids waited in the car. They were asleep, so it wasn't a big deal.

Quite a nice selection of beers from New Mexico and beyond. Lots of Odell, Deschutes, Ska and Santa Fe. Also many imports that I have seen rarely, including Nogne O, JW Lees (damn did I pay $9 for 275 mL?!), Hitachino and Olfabrikken. Relative to Jubilation (where we stopped on 3 Feb), selection is slightly smaller and more exclusive, especially with the imports. Pricing where the selection overlaps is a bit better here. Friendly staff was willing to talk beer and help us bring our purchases to the car.

For what it's worth, the receipt lists the address as 1005 St. Francis Dr.

Located at the intersection of St. Francis and Cerrillos in Santa Fe, this shop has about everything one needs in order to become a beer aficionado. Local and semi-local (Colorado) brews are abundant as well as a great selection of Belgians and even a small sampling of Norwegians.

Prices, at least compared to Northern Virginia, are excellent. A bomber of Stone Ruination for $5.99? Unheard of!

Service is very helpful and polite, although I didn't get to test anyone's knowledge - I knew exactly what I wanted going into the store. There's plenty of free parking and beer tastings are on Saturdays, too.

I would definitely recommend a stop into Susan's for anyone visiting the Santa Fe area.

Thanks Susan's!

This little place, which used to be Divine Liquors, may not have shelves and shelves of beers, but they do have a very solid selection. I'd say about 80% of the stuff sold here, I couldn't find in Texas. The micro section is mostly New Mexican and Coloradan beers with a good showing of Stone and Rogue products, to name a few. Nice Belgian selection (Cantillon and Boon among others) and a fantastic German selection (with the majority of the Germans NOT being from the typical German breweries such as Paulaner, Hacker-Pschorr, etc.). Decent prices. The guy at the front was helpful with questions I had, but wasn't all that well-informed. I can't complain, though. Great place, overall.
