Craft brew culture has cropped up in many major cities around the country in the past few decades, and it’s no different in Santa Fe. In fact, with so many great Santa Fe breweries to try in town, the city is considered by some to be “the Frontier of Beer.” That is, of course, thanks to the innovative flavors and techniques that local brewers are bringing to town. 

This summer, in between your other adventures in the City Different, make sure to grab a cold pint of beer from at least one of the fantastic Santa Fe Breweries. Many of them are located in the heart of the city, which means our Inn really is conveniently located near the best of Santa Fe!

Our Santa Fe Bed and Breakfast is located just blocks away from the New Mexico State Capital complex, and walkable to all the top attractions in downtown Santa Fe. Instead of placing you in the busy center of the city, though, our Santa Fe Bed and Breakfast affords you the opportunity to escape the crowds and enjoy a quiet getaway without sacrificing any of the convenience of a downtown location.

Whether exploring new craft beer is at the heart of your vacation or just a nice addition to an action-packed itinerary, there’s no better place to stay in town than our top-rated Santa Fe Bed and Breakfast. Book your room today!

Try These 5 Santa Fe Breweries

It may come as a surprise to some, but there are more than 80 breweries around the state of New Mexico, many of which are concentrated in the Santa Fe and Albuquerque areas. They are artful in their craft, too,with many Santa Fe breweries winning awards and earning recognition from brewers and beer lovers around the world. 

Whether you’re a beer-loving aficionado that loves to sample regional differences in brewing techniques and flavors or are just looking for a fun place to kick back and relax during your vacation, Santa Fe breweries make for an excellent pitstop in the middle or end of your day. 

Below, we’ve listed some of our favorite Santa Fe breweries worth visiting.

  1. Though there are plenty of small craft breweries to choose from in Santa Fe, the Santa Fe Brewing Company is, without a doubt, a perennial favorite. It’s the oldest among Santa Fe breweries, first getting its start around 30 years ago. It’s the biggest producer of craft beer in New Mexico, and there are two locations, one of which happens to be right next door to our sister Inn, El Farolito Bed and Breakfast in Santa Fe. While sipping a cold pint here, you can also enjoy some of the best food in Santa Fe, as there’s always a food truck onsite!
  2. If you love sour beers, then Rowley Farmhouse Ales is for you! It’s one of the newer Santa Fe breweries to come to town, but starting in 2021, this exceptional beer-forward destination has been cleaning up in regional beer competitions, including being recognized as the best small brewpub/brewer of the year!
  3. If you take a ride on the new Santa Fe Train or visit the Santa Fe Railyard, which is walkable from our Santa Fe Bed and Breakfast, then don’t miss Second Street Brewery. It’s a fantastic place to grab lunch while you’re exploring this popular area of town and they have a great selection of beer to choose from. 
  4. You’ll find more than great beer at the Tumbleroot Brewery and Distillery – they also have some really fantastic spirits and cocktails! This is one of our favorite Santa Fe Breweries. It’s located about ten minutes from downtown and often features an array of live music. It’s a great place to unwind in the evening with a delicious craft beer or cocktail. 
  5. For some interesting flavors and a signature smoky note to their beer, head to the Chile Line Brewery. This is one of the few Santa Fe breweries bringing Santa Fe’s signature flavors of red and green chiles into your beer, and they do it exceptionally well!
