A lot of things have occupied the space where Lizard Tail currently resides, but few have been as overwhelmingly successful. Owner Dan Berry spoke with me over a delicious tasting flight, telling me that they were actually surprised at how well received their beer and location have been since opening in this space back in August 2014.

Because of their smaller brewing capabilities at the location, some of the beers have been selling so fast that it is as excellent as it is tough for them. Their Irish Red outsold their IPA, which meant they had to really increase the amounts of certain types of beer. For a small location, though, they’re boasting a hefty 15 available on tap beers at the moment.

For such a small place, they sure do brew a wide variety of beer.

Dan said 2016 will be a great year for them to grow. They’ll be looking at larger brewery spaces to expand their production and gear and become more of a proper brewery in Albuquerque. Plus, some of the upcoming beers they will have available sound amazing, such as a Belgian Strong Dark, which I’ve always been a fan of, a Session IPA, and a Tripel. As strong as the Dubbel is already, I’m excited to see how their other Belgian-influenced selections fare.

Plus, as any good business does, they really listen to their customers and you can expect to see a Hefe and a Saison being added in rotation this year, also, as per their most common requests of something to make.

Dan was awfully busy the day I visited, so the Crew will have to check back with Lizard Tail in the near future for further details.

Prost!
