One of the first craft breweries in Santa Fe. Quickly was recognized w several GABF awards. Good food and service. Family friendly. Great patio in the summer. A second location in downtown rail yard district.

We have been going here occasionally over the past 8 years and it is consistently very good beer and food. The food is excellent New Mexican and other standard pub styles. If you like spicy, you must try their green chili stew or soup. It is outstanding! We ordered some to go it was so good last time. Their beer is almost always great and they usually have a nice seasonal or two available. Try a sampler of them all, you won't be sorry!

My wife and I came here just to try the beers, so I can't speak for the food here. Menu looked pretty much like classic bar/pub food.

This place isn't easy to see, especially at night, but is much bigger inside than it looks from the street. Parking is tight, and the joint was hopping! We easily found a high-top near the bar and the service was quick and efficient.

I had the beer sampler, with about 10 different beers. They had a regular IPA and a Simcoe IPA that were my least favorite of the bunch, but the rest were all good to great. I would certainly come back here to try the different seasonals.

This person needs 3 or more reviews on the site for their scores to start counting.

Don't be fooled by their website. This is a fantastic place. Our Brewpub Journal was a huge smash hit--instant celebrity. The beer was tasty, particularly the Double IPA and the Imperial Stout (both a highly respectable 3.5 stars). The staff and clientele (predominantly locals) alike were entirely welcoming to this pair of Seattle-ites. We felt more like a part of the community here than we do in most places back home.

The nachos were a little soggy in the middle, but good beer and warm company covers a multitude of shortcomings.

Second Street is my local when I am in the Santa Fe area. I have had very few disappointments with their beer, and they always have a variety on tap, with new beers rotating all the time-2 or three a month. Parking is a concern, but there is always something within a block or less. They are located just west (about six feet west) of the RR tracks between Cerrillos RD and St Francis on Second St, which is San Mateo RD on the St Francis side. There is now a train station within walking distance north at Alta Vista, and the pathway along the tracks goes right past the pub. The brewer does a great job on Mild, Bitters, ESB, Pale Ale, Pils, IPA, and some specials such as Tres Exis, a double Alt, and the 12th Anniversary Ale; although there have been a few that I didn't care for also. No more smoking on the patio, but there is a separate small area set up outside for drinking and smoking.

This place is easy to pass and sits back behind another building with a very small parking lot. We had to park down a dirt path by a bike path which was a bit odd especially because the bar wasn't really that crowded.

Once inside the place is a big 1/2 warehouse feel with warm wood paneling and big beams. There was a musician playing which was good but we could still hear everyone at the table talking during conversations. There was a nice patio but it was still a bit to cold to head out there. The bar is a small little half round bar in the very back corner of the room with a 1/2 open kitchen on the wall in front of it.

We ordered drinks and I asked for a vienna lager and got a Pale Ale which was very tasty and ordered another and our server was polite but didn't seem to know much about the beers. We ordered appetizers as they looked better than any of the entrees. The guacamole with tomatillos and just a hint of jalapenos was wonderful, however the mussels steamed in beer were not. 4 of the 12 were not open and the beer used was pretty bitter. We ate a few of them but couldn't finish they as the mussels tasted off. After we left we thought we should have told them they were really bad so others don't order them. They tasted a bit like they were old but the beer kind of masked that taste.

The beers were written on wooden hanging signs and written on a chalkboard with up coming beers which was a big help but they didn't really have any printed description of seasonals.

This was a nice brewpub with some decent beers but I will stick to the local fare to snack on when I go back.

Came in on the Sunday night before a holiday. The place was crowded, but there was still seating on the covered patio outside.
My companion got the Golden Ale and I got the IPA. Nothing overly special, but they were at least good. The IPA wasn't quite as tasty or adventurous enough for me and the Golden was a typical light offering where it was also not too adventurous so as to suck in the Bud Light crowd.
Next, I had their Maibock, which was a dark bock. Slightly stronger than the IPA, it tasted a little confused. Hints like it wants to be a stronger beer but limited by its own nature. Not impressed.
For the food, we had a reuben with a side salad (up charge for that) and an order of nachos. Nachos were nothing special and ended up making me a little sick. The reuben didn't have nearly enough Thousand Island and was on some rather mild marble rye. However, the salad was excellent.
Though we sat outside, which was nice, the inside is sort of dingy and especially loud because of the high ceilings.
Despite its fairly out-of-the-way location, Second Street seems to have some parking issues. Most of the spaces are a little haphazard and the overflow lot is by a railroad track and on the street.
The service was fairly good. We seated ourselves outside, so I didn't expect the server to be attentive, but he actually was: always there when we needed him.
I'm certainly glad I went, but I wouldn't necessarily go back. The other brewery in town is so far out of the way though, that this place may be popular just for its novelty.
