[Press Release:]

(Santa Fe, NM) – Santa Fe Brewing Company (SFBC), New Mexico’s original craft brewery, continues to do big things at their Santa Fe headquarters. They are preparing to break ground on a multi-million dollar project that will include a new tasting room and beer garden. They expect the project to be completed in January of 2018.

The scope of this undertaking is necessitating another exciting change – the moving of their taproom operations across the parking lot, from the small space attached to the main brewing facility to the newly renovated, brewery-owned concert and events venue, the Bridge. That change will take effect Friday April 7th, 2017, with an official grand opening celebration, to include live local music, all day happy hour pricing and food trucks, scheduled for Friday April 14th.

“We outgrew our current space years ago,” says SFBC owner and President Brian Lock. “The new taproom will provide a craft beer customer experience unparalleled in New Mexico”, he continues. “It will be a unique space that connects our history as the oldest craft brewery in New Mexico to the beauty that surrounds us in Santa Fe. It will also feature an interactive beer garden and a bridge connecting the taproom to The Bridge, so you can take your beer from the taproom to a show.”

The Bridge will continue to host indoor and outdoor events throughout the transition. On event days the existing taproom will be open to the general public and event goers interested in grabbing a pint before the show.

SFBC will be communicating the Bridge event schedule via the Bridge Facebook page and online calendar located at
