Went about 3 weeks ago.
For some strange reason they tried to charge me for a bottle of wine I didn't even purchase. Luckily i realized something was off in the pricing, cause they didn't notice until after I was hesitant and asked to see the receipt first.
Oh well, sh*t happens, and they were more than happy to correct the mistake.
They had a really awesome deal going on where if you buy a Unibroue bomber, you can get any beer glass you want for free.
My main gripe (besides the cashier goof-up), was the fact that the beers didn't end up tasting all that great. Perhaps improper handling (light/heat protection)? Or maybe it was just me. Whatever the case, the beers just didn't seem as delicious as usual.
My brothers a beer novice, so I recommended he get a Trois Pistoles bomber (which sold for about $8), and picked out the matching Trois Pistoles snifter for free. Bomber + Official logo glass for under ten bucks? That's a steal.
My wife picked up the La Fin Du Monde glass. There was at least half a dozen others to choose from.
Also found some hard to find Stone Collaboration bottles, and they had a pretty good price on them as well.
Aside from bombers and six packs, there's also a selection of single 12oz bottles.

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.
