Tucked in an industrial park is the glorious brewery. Just about all of their currently available beers on tap with a number of limiteds and flavor variants that aren't easy to get. Tours happen on a regular basis which is a nice little thing to do. Decent gift shop for some goodies to take homeaswell.

Honestly I'm interested why they cost so much. Truly not worth it. Just hops shoved in a bottle to call it a beer.

By far, the best tap room I've been to. Odd location in the middle of a residential area but tons of Taos, experimental brews, great patio and grilling outside
