Rails, Trails & Ales

brew tourWelcome to the era of craft beer! America has fully embraced this most prodigious beverage and New Mexico continues to set itself apart as top producer of craft beer. 95% of all beer produced in New Mexico is consumed locally, which means if you want some of the best beer in the country, you have to travel to the source.

At the New Mexico Rail Runner Express we believe that getting there is half the fun and getting home safe is the other half. Below is a list of local breweries, taprooms, and restaurants along the Rio Grande corridor. Hop on the train year-round to explore these breweries and tap rooms.
