Los Alamos is a pretty small town, so most people here are probably already aware that Boese Brothers’ latest taproom opened two weeks ago. I was out of town and missed the grand opening, and I finally made it over last Wednesday. It’s about what you’d expect: a cool vibe, a few big screen TVs, some games, a good selection of drinks, and delicious sandwiches.
I arrived just before 9 p.m. The place was about half full, but a particularly rowdy table made it sound closer to completely full. The sandwich-preparer was packing things up, but he kindly agreed to make one last meal, a green chile grilled cheese panini, paired with jalapeno potato chips. It was excellent. I ordered my usual beverage at Boese, the Dr. Strangehop. There were several other beers and Desert Dog ciders were available as well, which I’ll have to explore in future visits.
The photos should give you a good feel for the place, as well as details about food and drink options.
Hours are currently in flux, but for now it’s open noon to midnight Saturdays, and noon to 9 p.m. Sundays. Monday through Friday, it’s open from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. for lunch. In the evening, it’s open 4 to 10 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, 4 to 11 p.m. on Thursday, and 4 to midnight on Friday. Judging from my experience, food service wraps up earlier than closing, likely around 9 p.m.
Boese Brothers is a welcome addition to the beer scene in Los Alamos. Sitting diagonally across from Bathtub Row, it offers another great pub option, especially on those nights when the ‘Tub is overflowing.
