Cool little brewpub in the middle of New Mexico. Thanks to Beer Mapping mobile I found this place for lunch on my journey from south NM to Albuquerque last spring. I sat in the bar area, so I didn't get too good of an idea how large the place was, but seem small, but very NM in style. Food was okay and the service was standard for sitting at a bar. their beer selection was limited to the standard fare, but from the sampler I had all seemed pretty good. if evey back through the region I will stop off here again.

Since my son goes to school at New Mexico Tech, I find myself in Socorro 6-8 times a year. Socorro Springs is always our first stop -- there's nothing like a glass or three of their outstanding IPA to decompress after the long drive from Austin. This is one of my favorite IPAs anywhere. On those occasions when I've sampled some of their other flavors, I haven't been very impressed -- but then, I rarely drink anything other than IPAs. I have two growlers that I always carry with me on my trips there. As long as they're filled so that there's no air in them and well sealed, the beer can survive a long drive plus maybe a week or so in the fridge.

The food is interesting. Ask for the green chili cheeseburger to be served on the rib-eye sandwich bun. The pasta dishes are quite good, but the pizza is forgettable. Check out the pumpkin roll if you're there in November or December.

The place is a little stuffy, especially considering that you're in small-town New Mexico, but the beer generally makes up for it. They have, what I consider to be, the best IPA in the Southwest.
Socorro Springs is just about the only bar in town, but it's really more of a restaurant. That doesn't stop the kids from nearby NM Tech (who also constitute the majority of the staff) from hanging out there. Although these are future nuclear engineers, so they're not exactly rowdy.
Aside from the IPA, stout and porter, most of their beers are very light, catering more to the Budweiser sect. The fruit beers are especially a disappointment.
The food is mostly Italian, including pizzas, and relatively expensive. I actually wouldn't recommend eating there because not much of the food goes well with beer.
The atmosphere is also, like I said, stuffy. The restaurant is one of the few real restaurants in town though, so it's generally pretty crowded, except in the bar area, which is usually empty unless the restaurant area fills up.
But I still own their growler and make it a point to stop here whenever I'm in the area. I just love that IPA.

this brewery was the kind of place that's a restaurant first, and then a brewery.

nice building, although the parking lot was weird. one way in off the main road, one way out to a little road behind the brewery that took a minute or so to get my bearings so i could get out of town.

the bar area was very nice, with treacherously high stools at the bar. a nice view of the brewing room, storage tanks, and bags of malt.

the beers on tap were good, though expensive. not all beers on their list were available at the time that i went.

the food was OK, and again expensive. i ate and drank a couple beers, and had to pay over $35 bucks to get out the door, which soured the whole experience.

stop here if you're going by, but there really wasn't that much else to do in socorro, unless you're on your way to the VLA.
