A brewpub in Farmington? Well, I've been visiting this town since the mid 80's (my wife grew up here) and it's nice to see the town have a brewpub. I've eaten/drank there several times over the last few years with generally favorable experiences. Now onto the beer...

Average micro beer, nothing special. This is not a bad beer, but it didn't stand out in any area, except mabe mouthfeel, which was nice and med/full bodied. The smell and taste tended towards anutty(walnut) and toasted malt flavor. I'd drink it again but maybe they brew some others that are a bit better.

Three Rivers is the only place to drink beer in Farmington NM. Make this brewery your first stop if your just passing through town or visiting for the weekend.

The chaco nut brown is a great beer but I did rate it low in drinkability due to my dislike for nut browns. This doesn't mean you shouldn't try it but you schould enjoy this style of beer.

Presentation: Growler (brought to me by my girfrien).

Pours an amber/copper color with no real visible co2 presence. Retains a tan head for a short while with some sticky lace (no long term retention). Aroma is malty with some roasted notes coming through; no hop representation. Palate has some co2 (more than expected), but for the most part is quite watery, with a slow-on-the-up-take-type biting finish. Flavor has a lightly sweet and innocuous start and a dry finish. Finish remains and builds with the second swilling. Not a lot of character, but drinkable. Kind of a generic nut brown, with some good traditional characteristics.
