B2B Garden Brewery is one of Albuquerque’s newest microbreweries that offers a variety of exceptional, hand-crafted beers in a casual setting where families, friends, and neighbors experience the consistent quality and great food from our southwest style menu.

Here’s a review from someone who visited B2B Garden Brewery recently:

“This review is based on one visit for five people. The service was wonderful the garden was beautiful the management was helpful. The beer prices are good and for happy hour they are excellent. So one of our group members got three different tacos and she thought they were wonderful. I ordered  just some yuca fries and they came with three different dipping sauces and were very good. Nice selection of beers on tap. The garden with the covered patio area is the highlight of this location.

Please do keep in mind that if you want to come with a group to make a reservation.  Its not so much that they’re so busy it’s more that they don’t have a huge staff in place to be able to handle larger crowds.

All in all we had a very nice visit in a lovely setting we’re made to feel welcome we were served  promptly in with smiles. We will be back.” – Cyn P from Yelp
