Great find while on business in NM. Very reminiscent of a Portland bar scene. Kids and dogs are welcome, a food truck outside (they don't have a kitchen), TVs, a pool table, and the love for quality. The Elevation IPA is very, very good. They have a good variety of styles on tap and cask and have a fridge full of cans. It also didn't hurt that the bartender was gorgeous. A must stop if in NM. It was about $20 fare and tip to take a cab from the airport.

La Cumbre is a local place for me and among my favorites. Their wait staff is outstanding, they remember their customers and the beers are excellent. The atmosphere leavses a little to be desired (pre-fab building, no parking, very noisy, limited seating and an up-coming no vaping policy). Still, the beers are very good. Slice of Hefen is my go to beer on site and in stores.

Hands down my favorite brewery/tap room in Albuquerque. Great Beer, great people, great atmosphere.

With a good (and ever-changing) selection, La Cumbre is a taproom that should be visited if you find yourself in Albuquerque. The bartender was exceptionally knowledgeable and friendly. My wife and I split a flight of 8 flavors (of the 14 on tap), and through conversation ended up tasting a few more options. La Cumbre was in the process of expanding their brewery when we visited, and hopefully they'll be able to supply more beer across the US soon.

La Cumbre is a place that you have to visit if you're in Albuquerque. All of the beers we tried (and we tried everything that was on tap) ranged from good to great.

The service was a bit slow, but the place does seem to be pretty busy from open to close.

No food is served, but they often have a food truck right outside.

Prices were reasonable.

Place was packed with people. Got a flight and sampled on top of a stool. Beer were good to great, notably the IPAs. Might not be my style as far as hops... they were very good but I've had better with less hype. Still well worth a visit. Didn't get anything from the food truck outside.

I rate places primarily on the quality of their beers, and on this score, La Cumbre is a top tier, must-visit, worth-a-road-trip-to-Albuquerque kind of place. We had four beers, and not only loved them all, but found most of them exceptional and unusual.

The place itself is a typical industrial area small brewery, with the usual oddity of such locations. Inside, it's better than average for industrial tasting rooms, with a fair number of tables and a nice bar. No food, but a food truck outside.

Prices are reasonable, and they'll do a taster flight of any number of tasters of your choice.

Did I mention the remarkable beer?

One of my favorite New Mexico spots. Jeff Erway brews clean, solid beer and has nice looking women pouring them. That's a winning combination right there folks.
