I have eaten and drank at many of this nations microbreweries and I have found one that floats to the top of the list. The Chama River Brewing Company in Albuquerque, New Mexico has great food, great beer, and great service.
I am in town for business and headed up here for a dinner and a beer. (Who doesn't need a beer when they have been working all day).
We were greeted promptly when we walked in the door and sat at our table. The waiter appeared shortly and provided some great advice on what beers to have. It didn't take much for me to go for the Jack Rabbit IPA. It had good flavor and was really smooth. One of the better IPA's I have ever had.
Next came dinner. It was a new menu and it isn't posted on their website, but it was the Chorizo Stuffed Pork Chop. It was delicious. Had good flavor and spice and was cooked just right. It was served with Green Chili Polenta and green beans. It was delicious.
The service was great and not to mention the server walking around throughout the meal with different roles and breads to have before and with you dinner. I had the chili bread and the beer bread. Both were delicious. (But my homemade beer bread tastes better.)
All-in-all I will give this restaurant 4.5 stars out of 5. The only reason that it doesn't get that last .5 is that I didn't get to try desert. I was too full. But they looked delicious. Maybe next time.
If you are in Albuquerque, head up to the north side of town and visit the Chama River Brewing Company. You won't be disappointed.
