New Mexico’s craft beer boom

Legendary New Mexico

New Mexico has become a beer aficionado’s nirvana over the past decade.

Throughout the years, our state has seen incredible growth in the libations business, particularly with craft beer. 

To date, more than 70 breweries have doors open throughout the state.  Featuring hoppier brews, higher ABV levels and uniquely local flavors, the industry is more than just good business.

Although business is very good for the state.  In 2016, its economic impact was reportedly more than $673 million.  

Yet what makes the boom so sexy is its personal touch, it’s “neighborhood quality” feel.

Growing alongside the farm to table agricultural movement, the beer boom shows no sign of slowing down.
