Recently moved to Albuquerque from KC and have discovered a hidden treasure of local Craft beers. Unfortunately, few are bottled so you have come here to enjoy. While I enjoy the local stuff I have my store favorites- Cutthroat Porter, Vanilla Porter, Black Butte Porter. Yea! I like Porters and Stouts, something about actually tasting my beer.

Burlington, Vermont. Pound for pound there are very few states that have better breweries than the state of Vermont.

Portland, Maine is also very very good as well.

The craft beer phenom is wonderful. All of my favorite beers are now made locally. A "Laughing Lab" or "Beehive" and I'm happy.

No need to drink the p*ss water I grew up drinking, aka Bud, Coors, Millers, et al.

Amen to the p*ss water. I hope none of y'all ever get to taste my favorite local brews unless you come to ABQ. That would mean they have started bottling and distributing. Right now, THEY ARE MINE! ...... ALL MINE!!!

Yeah, but Burlington itself doesn't have many good breweries. Fiddlehead isn't in Burlington, and that's the best right there. Foam is good. Zero Gravity is forgettable. Switchback is meh. There isn't anything else above decent.

Portland has many world class ones. I love Burlington, I lived there, visit there often, but can't cosign this post.

Not a bad list, but I have two comments: 1) Denver really should be called Front Range, since Boulder and Ft. Collins are implied, but not mentioned and 2) If Grand Rapids and Asheville make the cut (which I absolutely feel they belong), Bend, OR absolutely should, as well.

Several of Albuquerque's most prominent breweries are packaging, Marble, La Cumbre, Tractor, Kellys, at the very least, and of course Santa Fe Brewing which while technically not from Albuquerque has a huge presence here with their new tasting room.

I don't think they are distributing out of state yet, though, except maybe Colorado.

Albuquerque is a surprisingly great craft beer city. https://www.thrillist.com/drink/nati...ies-in-america ABQ was also 17th in Travel & Leisure's best beer cities and Marble Brewery won the award for best small brewery at the 2014 GABF.
