Visited several times on a business trip to Albuquerque. Thank you to several BAs for recommending this place. Very easy to find: Lomas is a major east-west road in town. Plenty of parking too.
Staff is very friendly and helpful. Showed me where the singles cooler was, answered questions about what's available in NM, etc.
Great selection of western U.S. beers (Deschutes, Odell's, Great Divide, Avery, Ska, Stone, Left Hand, Left Coast, New Belgium, Moylan's), including just about every beer brewed in NM. Nice selection of Belgians and other European beers too (Mikkeller, Nogne O). Found some nice rarities in Deschutes The Abyss, Odell's Woodcut No. 4, and Liefmans Goudenband. The singles cooler doesn't have much, but at only $1.50 per 12 oz. bottle, it's great for trying new beers on the cheap. I think my only complaint about this place was the lack of Odell's in the singles cooler.
Overall this is a great shop with friendly, knowledgable staff.

First place we stopped on the way into Albuquerque. Not the best looking place from the outside thanks to the bard on the windows and doors but it is fine once you are inside. Feels much bigger on the inside than it appears on the outside. Quality is solid, lots of locals and plenty of beers from the west coast as well. Service was awesome. The guys behind the bar were really helpful and offered some suggestions one what I should get. Selection was pretty good, a bit small for the space but they had plenty of solid offerings to choose from. Prices where more than reasonable. Overall a really solid bottle shop that I would defiantly return to if I was in the area.

Great local store in Albuquerque. They carry a few things that the newly opened Total Wine doesn't (and vice versa), and definitely has the best selection in Albuquerque. The staff is super helpful/friendly, and this is always my first stop before going anywhere else.
They have an email list with the latest news on new beer (and wine and hard liquor), and they frequently do tastings. Definitely sign up if you're an Albuquerque resident.
They have a nice mix your own six section with a lot of the seasonals so you can try them all. It's especially handy in the fall when all the pumpkin brews come out.
