Visited 2.11.11.

Located off Lomas Blvd. not too far from downtown Albuquerque, Marble Brewery's taproom is the most bustling beer-centric place I encountered while on my visit to ABQ. There is an outdoor seating area with umbrellas for shade (not needed in February) which was a sanctuary for the smokers in the crowd. First visit not off to a good start service-wise, in large part due to the bustling growler fill business, at $9 a good value. However, this led to gaps in serving people at the bar. Food menu was minimal, a few sandwiches prepared on a panini press by the bar staff which further exacerbated the service issue, though I must note this place was quite packed both evenings I visited with a fairly young hipster crowd.

That being said, the beers were top notch, and my second visit I was able to enjoy the company of Brewmaster Ted Rice who gave me an extensive tour of a very busy production facility, along with taste of his most special beers, From the Wood, a quadrupel, and Marble Reserve, a bourbon barrel aged tour-de-force. Either of these beers will stand up to the best of each American style in these categories. These also feature a nice Imperial Red and DIPA. While there are a limited number of beers available, they are all of high quality.

I'm no newbie at this, and I have to say I was highly impressed. I'd highly recommend seeking out Marble products. Though not widely distributed, you will be pleasantly surprised at the quality of this emerging beer producer.

i have been a long time fan of marble beers, i was sad when they stopped distributing to colorado. it was awesome to finally get to check out their operation. i guess they have a few spots around town now, but this is the original, where all or most anyway of the production is happening these days. its a cool space, with an outdoor area, a dim lit taprom with lots of seating, a nice stage area, some comfy couches, and a long bar with a window to the large brew house behind it. really impressive list of beers too, they must have had near 20 different beers working! wow. i had a flight, and all of them were very good, but belgian triple and the double ipa were most impressive. some of the best beers in town here i reckon, certainly some of the most professionally done and refined. the service was okay, they seemed a little overwhelmed by an only moderately busy bar, and took a really long time to acknowledge me, but it got better the longer i stayed. there is a good energy in here, bustling, and with lots of beer people around, everyone seemed to be having a great time too, i really enjoyed visiting this place, and would definitely recommend it. the amount of different beers is crazy in here, really impressive diversity. i hope they decide to come back to denver...

We loved this place. Cool vibe, great service, excellent beer, high quality food trucks. What's not to like? Grab a spot outside on the second floor and enjoy an amazing sunset over the mountains.

This is the last brewery to visit on this trip to New Mexico. It was an excellent way to close out my brewery visits. This place has a really nice vibe. There are tables inside and outside with a food truck. You can tell they put a lot of thought into their operations from the bar area, gathering area, logo, etc. And, the beers were solid.

It's a very clean, open, and modern space to gather with friends for some beers. I heard from my Uber driver that this place gets really crowded during their peak times. I can tell why.

The ladies behind the counter were super nice, friendly, and attentive to all their guests.

Enjoyed my visit very much.

Nice tap room. Good quality brews and attentive staff. They had an outside seating area but it was like 110 degrees so I sat inside at the nice, large, bar area. They had a food truck selling burgers, it was really good.

There beer is good quality, tasty, but maybe not outstanding.

Nice ambience. Neighborhood (urban) vibe, close to downtown. Slow pace quickened quite a bit as happy hour forged on. equal number of flagships as seasonal. Not one, but two, food trucks available for nosh.

I just came home from visiting the Marble Brewery Pub. They feature several top notch Marble beers that are hard to get elsewhere. I had three very good beers here tonight, two of which were not even listed here on BA and one that was incorrectly stated as retired. Basically, if you want the best of Marble you have to come out here. The food was provided by a food truck by the entrance to the patio, which is a bit inconvenient, but it was good and inexpenive. I don't know how to rate that, but it does not make much of a difference. The live music playing was entertaining but the place became a bit noisy towards late evening. I wish their selection had been larger but they had a dozen of their best and most interesting beers. I do have to commend their staff, they were very friendly and very knowledgable.
