Santa Fe’s Top Breweries

Beer Barrel with TapGiven that beer is most consumed alcoholic drink in the world, it’s important for a city the size of Santa Fe to have a healthy selection of top-rated breweries to satisfy thirsty guests.  As the craft beer scene grows, we find that Santa Fe is increasingly taking home top honors in beer festivals across the country.  Santa Fe even recently earned the distinction of being ranked as one of America’s Best Beer Towns by Travel & Leisure.  A tour of Santa Fe’s top breweries wouldn’t be complete without a stop at New Mexico’s oldest Microbrewery, the Santa Fe Brewing Company.  All of the beers at this landmark brewery are produced on-site, where you’ll find a great selection of year-round and seasonal beers worth trying at their tasting rooms or tours.

If you’re looking for a cozy neighborhood brewery where you can sit back and enjoy Santa Fe’s specialty brews, such as a local IPA, then try the Second Street Brewing Company. Another local favorite is the 7-barrel Blue Corn Brewery, where they have 6 house beers and 4 rotating specialty beers of their own.  Don’t leave Santa Fe without tasting the Belgian Brews, made using traditional recipes and high-quality ingredients at Duel Brewing.  Though they aren’t breweries per se, beer aficionados should appreciate a visit to The Draft Station, and The Cowgirl.  And, finally, during your beer tour of Santa Fe, you won’t want to miss the WinterBrew festival happening at the Santa Fe Farmer’s Market this year.  However else you spend your time, we know you’ll enjoy the great breweries of Santa Fe when you stay with us at our luxury Bed and Breakfast Inn.
