Me and my husband stopped by and tried their nachos and beer. I had the peach wheat and it was delicious and refreshing. We ordered the nachos and they were amazing and huge! We shared a small order and it was plenty for 2 people to get full off of! Very delicious and extremely friendly staff! Great prices too!

Visited 2017-03-17 at 19:30. Had chips, queso, salsa, Veg-Head Tray, and share a pitcher of locally produced root beer. $20.68 with tax and tip. Nice local atmosphere. Local band played starting at 8:00. Waitress was excellent - attentive, friendly, professional. Everyone in our party of 6 enjoyed their entrees. When in Las Cruces, we will return.

Looking for a laid back pub with good beer. Found it and found great friendly service. If my wife likes the place then it has to be good.

Excellent beer and good service. If offered, buy the Scottish Ale. The Heifewiezen is wonderful. High Desert is a true example of craft brewing.

After a long drive through West Texas we were grateful to find this oasis in Las Cruces. Excellent service, delicious dinner (green chili stew and cheese and tomatillo quesadilla) with their own takes on beer. Sit outside with the toasty heaters and watch the sun go down.

If you're a fan of craft brews - you won't be surprised to find a nice little brewery in Las Cruces, because craft brewers have taken over the world! Well, not quite, but the High Desert beers were mighty fine! And the food was a decent accompaniment - but you'd definitely come for the beers! Shall I say it again,... More

Yes, there are brewpubs popping up everywhere, but this one has been around awhile now (almost 20 years, I think), and it is like no other brewpub I've been to. First off, the beer is hands-down excellent. No brewery would stay in business this long if it weren't. Always a good selection that varies from visit to visit, and always... More

If you are just looking for locally brewed beer, this could be an ok stop. I would skip the food. The focus really is just on beer. The atmosphere is lame, the food was poor, the bartender was pushy and rude. Overall, I think their are better places in town

The Buffalo wings here are made from a very unusual recipe with Chipotle and orange marmalade. To die for! Oktoberfest is the best around!
