A quick guide to every brewery now open for dine-in customers

Customers are now allowed in certain breweries, like La Reforma, albeit at 50-percent occupancy and carefully spaced apart, unlike this photo from opening week.

As we noted with last week’s surprise OK to open patios at certain breweries, the majority of those places would also be allowed to open indoor seating starting today (Monday) at 50-percent capacity. Well, as a public service, we wanted to make as easy as possible for everyone to know where you can sit down inside (or on a patio) for a pint.

Again, the rule is that breweries that have 50 percent or more of their sales from food can reopen alongside traditional restaurants. Breweries without kitchens, like Marble and La Cumbre, or those with very small kitchens, like Canteen and Tractor, are not eligible. Those breweries are still able to sell beer to-go, so please keep supporting them as well.

If there are any breweries not listed below, please send us an update via social media or to nmdarksidebrewcrew@gmail.com.
