    Il Vicino Canteen Brewhouse is real close to La Cumbre (an easy walk). Also Chama River isn't bad.

    Bad part about ABQ tap rooms is the 3 beer limit. Even if you walked tgere from a hotel. Lol

    I didn't know about that but we only have around 5hrs in town before we have to get back onnthe road. Also looking for a place to grab lunch and another for dinner. Suggestions appreciated. Preferably with good beer (and on the $ side of things for lunch, dinner can be $$ to low $$$ out of $$$$).

    Il vicino and Chama river have food. At la Cumbre, we always have pizza delivered from a place they recommended. Can't recall the name. La Cumbre usually has a food truck out front

    Thanks for the recommendations. It'll be a quick stop for a few hours. Trying to reduce the time driving the next day from there to houston.

    Yeah for lunch I would just eat at whatever Food truck La Cumbre has outside Phischy and for dinner I would try Bousque Brewery. They are a new brewery that has been turning out some really nice beer plus they have food.

    There is also Oniells. The food is Ok but they have a big Local beer menu.

    And if you get the chance, swing by Jubilation Liquor store for any hard to find bottles.

    I will be in Albuquerque this Sunday passing through to Red River. Any suggestions on bottle shops? I will definitely be at La Cumbre for Project Dank pitchers or whatever is available.

    jubilations is the top bottle shop but Kelly's off Wyoming is great spot too. Right now La Cumbre just released a Rum BA Barelywine that is putting good. U should try it when you stop by

    Thanks for the tips. Any suggestions on mid or high end Mexican restaurants? My wife is a foodie and loved the New Mexican food we had in Taos last trip compared to the gut bomb Tex-Mex found here.

    Hit both Marblegs and La Cumbra. Both are excellent. Dropped off SD cans at both. Brought a growler to share at LC and I think they thought I was a cop...refused to share it among their bartenders.

    I just wanted to empty it so I could refill there! Thought that was funny. Also beer prices are WAY cheaper than SD.
