"An oasis for beer in the Southwest".
Located unassumingly in the middle of a busy strip-mall area of town, I was happily surprised to find Chama River. It was so good! I was really surprised to find it in Albuquerque and would recommend it for anyone who goes there in the future. I sat at the bar, which was copper and wood. It had a very modern/swanky atmosphere (there was a large bronze sculpture/fountain in the doorway). I got to talk to the brewer, who recommended the Weizenbock and the Imperial Red as their two newest seasonals on tap. And wow. They were the best beers Ive had on this trip, hands down. Eventually one of the other brewers came out and talked to me for a while, because I apparently attract attention with my beer-reviewing notebook. The staff was exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable. They also had an extensive and good menu I had the bbq beef sandwich and sweet potato fries which were good.
