Spent a hot summer day exploring Santa Fe. The Taproom is located on the second floor of an indoor mall, and overlooks the plaza. There's two rooms indoors, one with the bar and a few tables, the other has armchairs, a few tables, a fireplace, and a shuffleboard game. A large outdoor patio, which even in the heat was a pleasant place to sit, drink beer, and people-watch. It was fairly quiet on a Monday afternoon.
There were 7 house beers, 4 brewer's specials, and 1 guest beer on tap. We had the pilsner and the double white, both very nice.
The food looked to be pizza and only pizza. We didn't eat, but the menu looked impressive.
The patio makes this a great place to relax and have a beer.

Great place to enjoy a rooftop beer in Santa Fe for less than an arm and leg! I don't l is a out earlier service complaints- we are always treated great Nd our kids are welcome. Far better than a certain ex-IPA champion taproom in Abq- where surly is normal!

Great feature is the long second-story porch overlooking the Plaza in Santa Fe. Location doesn't get any better. The place is on the second floor of a modern "galleria" mall inserted into the Santa Fe-style storefronts. Big interior room, a functional bar, and the great decks.

Regular house beers from their Albuquerque brewery are One-Eleven Pilsner, Wildflower Wheat, Amber Ale, Marble Red, IPA, Double IPA, Oatmeal Stout. Guest taps: Santa Fe Nut Brown, and Czech Saaz and Copper John from Chama River. I'm not a big fan of the regular Marble lineup but I really liked both of the hoppy yet elegant Chama River brews.

Pizza is the sole foodstuff. Choice of blue corn crust of regular, the thin cracker style. Southwestern ingredients like caramelized leeks and green chiles as well as the usual upscale toppings. Not especially good.

A nice bar shuffleboard table. Usual aggravating sound system but nice eclectic selections.

Stopped here on 2 Feb 2011 during our epic vacation to New Mexico.

Located on the second floor of an indoor mall. Overlooks the street outside but it was a bit cool to use the patio (I think there was a patio anyway). Eight to ten Marble beers on tap. Bar seats eight, another dozen or so tables. About half full when we were there (late afternoon). The kids in our gropu were well tolerated by staff and the other patrons. A sporting event of some kind was on the TV. I think they had food but we didn't order any.

Overall a nice place to take a break for a while.

I had only been to the tap room in Santa Fe a few times before it closed. Great location overlooking the Santa Fe Plaza and multiple annoying drivers that would circle the block, revving their engines. That was entertaining.
The service was decent, despite the crowd. They had beer and pizza. Allowed growlers of most of the beer there. The Double White was my favorite, though many other beer they brew are very well worth drinking: Red Ale, IPA, Double IPA, Imperial Red, Imperial Stout, and the Reserve ale. The price was good, and though I didn't use it at the time, Marble is on the list to give you a discount for being an AHA member. Very much worth the experience.

Visited the afternoon of July 4, 2013. This establishment is upstairs in a space overlooking the Santa Fe plaza which is really a nice area. They have a bar with around eight seats and table seating for maybe 30 between indoor and outdoor. Wow, can service really be this bad - I just came in for a quick pint and told my wife I'd catch up with her in a few minutes. I decided to make a game of how long the four waiters/waitresses that were in and out of the bar area could avoid making eye contact with me as I was seated by myself in the middle of the bar staring impatiently at the back of their heads. Quite a while as I found out and of course time can really drag when you're by yourself. But after a long 10 minutes a guy who I suspect was the manager finally pulled himself away from his endless chat with two other touristy bar patrons (two stools over...) and finally took my order. I ordered the flight which contained six rather standard beers (Pilsner, Wheat, IPA, Red, Amber, and Oatmeal Stout). Wouldn't say any were all that great, but not all that bad either. Overall worth a quick stop for a sampler or pint if you're in the area.

After having dinner and trying a couple beers at another place in Santa Fe, we made it a point to try the Marble tap room. I was rather disappointed. The venue was nice enough - a balcony that overlooks the Plaza that holds about a dozen tables than can seat 2 to 4 people. Service was prompt enough. The food menu is all 'artisan' pizzas. We had a sampler of the brewpub's 'specialty' beers, which I'll review elsewhere if I can figure out how to do that. I found the beers to be unremarkable at best, especially after the place from which we'd just come. None had a really pleasing or distinctive flavor. I sensed that the braumeister had learned his trade on the West Coast - the beers had lots of hops, but all lacked a distinctive hop flavor and none had the strength of malt flavor to balance.
