One of my go-to spots when in Taos; this place has great beer and great food. It's large, open and airy. At times when there is music playing, it's hard to keep up a conversation. The menu has some vegetarian options. You order at the counter and they bring the food out to you. We did have a bit of... More

My son and I stopped here on the way back from the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge over Christmas vacation. It was late afternoon, so there was plenty of seating. My son had beer and I had soda. It looks like a fun place. I can imagine how nice it would be to sit outside during nicer weather. We enjoyed the... More

Crowds vary but we happened upon a very busy night so it was standing room only. Enjoyed a beer then found a table for dinner. Fish tacos adequate but nothing special. Must order at a counter. Food brought to table. But fun vibe... great dancing. Check out schedule as each night different.

This is the location in town. The one outside of town is cool too but this one has nice tvs and nice sitting areas. The apps were great. Lots of nice choices for beers.

Its outside of town, locals were all over this place, and food was ok. (I didn't try the beer) The house band took every bit of 2 hours to set up, which we stayed to listen to and hangout a bit. (Mistake #2) They offered room temp water out of a cooler in the back corner. Small space and limited... More

We love this original location (although the new in-town location is great too), which is conveniently located near the Gorge with expansive views from the outdoor seating. The local beer is really good and there often is free music. The pizzas are delicious. My sister and I sat for hours catching up. Great local vibe. Highly recommend a visit.

On the way out of Taos to the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge - this brewing company/music venue/restaurant makes a great stop. The beer is pretty good and there is a lot of selection. Most fun is the random music - when we were there for a Sunday lunch there was a DJ that randomly played his horn along with an... More

After visiting the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge we stopped here on our way back to Taos. Interesting building. You go up and order your food, drinks and they bring it to your table. It was the Saturday before Halloween and a band was setting up on stage. Food and beer were good, staff was in costume. Looked like a re-purposed... More

We ended up here for dinner after we got sick of waiting in a long line of traffic & this place was right next to us. The food that this brewery offers is very 'hipster' to say the least. I believe the pizza we tried was called The Brew House, one of its main ingredients was balsamic vinegar. I didn't... More

After visit to the earthships and a sunset stop at the bridge over the Rio Grande gorge we decided to stop at Mesa Brewing for a burger. Unfortunately I was driving and needed to pass on the extensive list of in-house brews, but others in our group were pleased with their selections. While my daily special bacon BBQ burger was...
