Check Out These Tasty Craft Breweries in Albuquerque

Sample Tasty Beers at Craft Breweries in Albuquerque

Ancient civilizations, including ancient Egypt and China, dabbled in brewing beer. Thousands of years later, it became a mainstay in places like the United States and worldwide. Today, you can tap into that timeless tradition right here close to Olympus Highlands North. We've got a slew of great local craft breweries near our apartments in Albuquerque. Head to some of the best around, including these locations.

Differential Brewing Co.

When you want a chill spot with a laid-back vibe, go to Differential Brewing Co. Founded in 2019, this brewery near Albuquerque feels like you're hanging out in a friend's living room. To have fun, there's a pool table and board games to play with friends. Customers love the attentive staff, delicious drink options, and cool space. When you're hungry, different local food truck visits daily.

Try the yummy flagship brew, the Blue Corn Cream Ale, made from organic local blue corn. It's the perfect way to enjoy a beautiful day. There are also seasonal cocktails, slushies, and non-alcoholic drink offerings.

Thirsty Eye Brewing Company

This creative local brewery combines local art with kicking libations. Thirsty Eye Brewing Company features a corner coffee shop feel (and serves coffee!) but also with craft beer. The indoor tap room and outside patio have a selection of art and murals. The coolest part, though, is Exhibit/208, the art gallery right next door. 

For a robust brew, get the Rented Tux vanilla porter. It's full bodied with just a hint of vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg notes. Grab a four pack of crowlers on your way out to enjoy at home or on a picnic. 

Marble Brewery

Just a few minutes away is Marble Brewery. It's been serving up delightful local brews since 2008. The brewery also provides beer to surrounding states. Over at the flagship taproom and brewery on Marble Ave is where the magic happens. 

Enjoy local bands and food trucks just about every day. You'll encounter creative brews like the Desert Fog IPA. Its touted as having "early morning fog kissed by the orange juice hued Southwestern desert sunrise and smells of pineapple-grapefruit juice perfume."

After a chill visit to local craft breweries near our apartments in Albuquerque, plan a visit to area farmers' markets. You can also plan a tour of Olympus Highlands North when you contact us. We look forward to showing you around.
