You may have already seen Santa Fe Brewing's beers at a supermarket or liquor store near you, but it's always much better when you go straight to the source. The brewery's tasting room is off Highway 14 at the south end of Santa Fe, away from the hubbub of downtown. This is an unpretentious spot with outdoor tables and the occasional food truck parked outside. The focus is on beer, of course, with over a dozen varieties available. There are seasonal brews and other unusual varieties like the Kickin’ Chicken bourbon barrel-aged barley wine (I love the Black IPA). Saturday afternoon is the best time to come: That's when they offer free tours and tastings of small-batch brews, produced in 10-gallon increments, often made by local brewing enthusiasts. Past offerings have included creative takes like Rosehip Mead and Green Chile Pale.
