My friends and family frequent this tap room on our trips to Santa Fe. The service is always great. One server happily put a Spurs game on the TV for us during the NBA playoffs. You can order food from a few nearby restaurants and the beer is great!!

I stopped in here out of necessity a few year ago. We rented a Mustang convertible to take a "back roads" road trip from Albuquerque to Santa Fe. My hair was recently shorn, and I was not wearing a hat. By the time we got close to Santa Fe, by scalp was scorched. Lo and behold, we encountered this oasis of good bee and good food. We had the most incredible (and massive) chicken enchiladas. I would love to make a return visit!

One of the reasons I miss living in Santa Fe. I can't wait to go down there this month and stock up on my favorite beer! No food selection, but not the reason I would go there. Service needs improvement, they aren't the friendliest place in town - but I was there for the beer only.

Did a flight, service was good despite some taproom congestion. Beers were OK to good, but not great. Might stop again if I'm in the area, but wouldn't make a special trip.

Santa Fe Brewing isn't exactly a tourist mecca, but the beer is clean (mostly) and the locals will likely burn a bowl with you if you ask around. There is a funny septic tank smell at times, but that's being resolved as they need to tap into the local sewer line.

Overall, it's still the best Santa Fe has to offer.

Not exactly what I was expecting from one of the widest distributing breweries in the southwest, this place has the vibe of an all-ages frat house. Nice looking bar area, but that's about it as the rest if the brewery seems as though it hasn't been improved upon in the 20+ years of business. We found the balcony on the second level which has really nice views of the mountains and a well patronized ping-pong table. Beer is mostly what hits distro, but the pricing is almost absurdly cheap even on packaged beer. The bar was slammed almost constantly and the single bartender on duty seemed a bit frazzled, which was understandable. Overall a fun place, but not anywhere I'd take the family.
