(This review is for the Second Street location, they have another location in the Railyard area)

Beer is not one of the first things that come to mind when one thinks of Santa Fe, NM. But that is changing. There are several very good places to taste the local brews and Second Street is one of the best.

As a local brewery the selection varies with on a monthly basis. Once they run out, you have to wait for the next batch. The seasonal options range from good to excellent. I tend to like trying different styles as they come up, but the standbys of IPA and Kolsh are always welcomed and available.

The names of the beers that they have available are on hanging wooden signs, but to get more detailed information on them, check out the 'menu' on the table. The listings have the ingredients as well as the ABV ratings other data. (Note, they don't serve harder alcohol, only beer and as I recall, maybe a couple varieties of wine as well as soft drinks. Remember, this is a brewery.)

If in doubt, request a sampler of their current offerings. Well worth the small investment, but I rarely find one I don't like. The narrowing process is more to help me select the best choice.

The service is very good. If you have any problems, they work hard to correct them. Ernie Bob is a great asset to the staff. He makes you feel like you've known him forever by the time you leave. And by now, he will just bring me what he thinks I'll like best.

The food is good for the typical bar variety. The green chili cheese fries and fish & chips are two standbys. But the daily specials usually offer a great value that pleases.

All in all, one of my favorite places to meet up with friends after a tough day at work. Usually, on Thursdays - Saturdays, they feature local musical acts in the evening.

Whether you are a visitor to Santa Fe or a local, it's a great place to have a bite and taste some unique beer.

I am reviewing the new location right near the railyard. I went in during that dead 2-3pm time and found it light and new looking inside with a minimum of funk. The bartender was a great guy who talked to me about the beers and made my short stay enjoyable. The beers are good with their Kolsch being top notch ( it is their entry level ale ). The IPA was the best I had tasted in Santa Fe and the Octoberfest was better than Santa Fe Brewings version. Too bad they don't bottle or can any of their beers as they are a hidden gem . The food was pretty good with some nice green chilli stew on offer.
