For those who don’t follow us on social media, we asked for some reader ideas for stories on Thursday, what with the current news lull around our craft brewing scene. One of the best ideas came from our good friend Karim, whose regular hangout is the recently expanded/renovated Marble Westside Taproom. While the rest of us have not been that far west since the renovations have been completed, the pictures alone show a much more spacious, comfortable place to drink good beer.
That got Karim thinking, and then us thinking, which brewery or taproom is the most comfortable place to enjoy a pint in ABQ? And by that token, which places are most in need of a renovation to benefit their customers?
This is not about the beer itself, but rather the environment in which to enjoy the beer. For different people, it can be about different aspects of the experience. For some it is all about the patio space, for others it’s more about indoors. How cozy are the chairs and tables? Are there enough TVs? Too many TVs? Too loud? Too quiet? Obviously this is pretty much the most subjective thing we have ever asked.
For our purposes, we are listing two polls below, both for the ABQ metro area only. For context, we ask you to leave comments on social media, DM us if you’re shy, email us directly (email@example.com), leave us a comment below the story, or however you want to share your likes and dislikes. If a whole lot of people shower praise on one or more places, we will share it with the brewery or taproom. If a whole lot of people scream “fix that place up!” then we will share that as well.
For the second poll, we are not including any place that has either opened in the last 12 months or been renovated in that span (or in the case of Bosque San Mateo, is about to be renovated in the next few weeks). Thus, it is a bit shorter.
This is your chance to voice your opinion, and we know all of you have lots of opinions you would like to share. Just remember to go beyond simply clicking on the polls and leave us some detailed context! Thank you, and enjoy your weekend!
