We like to keep this all a secret...all our own. The NM Brewer's Guild has about 50 member breweries and growing...in a state with 2 million people. I can no longer keep up with the new breweries and taprooms so I settled on four or five close to home. I think a brewery crawl is on the horizon to see what is new.

ABQ is indeed a well kept secret. Even though I'm new here I've tasted enough brew from around the country to know this place has it going on. I've mentioned a few of them previously but worth saying again.
Tractor Milk Stout
Bosque Scotia Scottish Ale
Santa Fe State Pen Porter
Marble Red
Nexus Stout

Couple of good porters out of Colorado- Odell's Cutthroat Porter and Breckenridge's Vanilla Porter.


Taste the beer, not the water!!!

It's hard to top a Marble. Their beers go so well with local chile.

Seventy breweries? Beer Advocate only list 17.

Portland, San Diego, Denver & Philadelphia for large cities; Ft. Collins, Grand Rapids & Asheville for small cities.

Cincy has a solid emerging beer scene, but so do many other cities in the country. The greater Dayton area alone has over a dozen breweries for a pretty small metro.

That must be really dated then or they're just counting the ones in the city limits, but I think there's more than 17 just in the city.

Most of the good "Portland" beer is actually from Bend in central Oregon. But even then, I think Portland beer is way over hyped when compared to San Diego, Lake Michigan (Milwaukee, Chicago, to Three Floyds in Indiana and Bells/Founders in Michigan), Denver.

I actually just saw an article last week about how Chicago has grown to rival only Portland, Or in the number of breweries and becoming a craft beer powerhouse.

Chicago area now has over 150 breweries, and due to its centralized location and being such a huge beer drinking city, it has one of the largest if not the largest inventory of craft beers available anywhere in the country.
