Membership has its benefits at New Mexico breweries — 2018 edition

Posted: December 11, 2017 by cjax33 in Brewery Membership Guide

Time to renew those brewery memberships for 2018!

Once again, the Crew worked to compile all the information for breweries that offer special memberships/mug clubs around the ABQ area and Santa Fe. Once again, it was not easy, as a lot of places either did not send us their information or did not have it available on their websites.

For those who did respond, or have it online, thank you. Your customers (including us) appreciate it. Here are all the ones we know of for 2018. We will update these listings if any additional info arrives in our email box (nmdarksidebrewcrew@gmail.com).
