Review: Boese Brothers Brewery

On my second night in town, I met up with a friend that I had not seen in some time at La Cumbre Brewery. La Cumbre means ‘the top’ in Spanish.  Is this the best beer in Albuquerque?

It is located a few minutes off of Interstate 25. There is parking along the street in front of the brewery. It was very packed at the end of the night. I took an Uber so there was no need to park.

I entered the brewery through a huge outdoor seating area. It was not in use due to the near freezing temperatures.

There is a beer menu as you enter the brewery.

Plenty of community seating was available in the main downstairs area, as well as a place for families near the back. The crowd was fairy diverse and included babies and puppies.

The upstairs area is smaller than downstairs, but would be the perfect place to get away from the crowd.

It included a foosball table.

Now, let me get to the beer. The brewery has 13 beers on tap. Here is the menu again.

Note: there is a 3 beer limit.

I tried the Red Ryeout and A Slice of Hefen. Both beers were amazing, I preferred the red.

After enjoying those beers, I sought out the restroom. I came across the single best sink that I have ever seen. I wanted to put it in my jacket and bring it back to Texas.

Final Word

I enjoyed the chill vibe, friendly staff, and delicious beers. Keep up the good work and please let me know where I can buy that sink.
