Bosque Heights taproom enters final stage of construction before opening

The exterior of the taproom at 5210 Eubank NE looks a lot different than when it was all brick during its previous life as a bank.

Before the month of May comes to an end, there will be a new taproom option for craft beer fans living in the Northeast Heights. The Bosque Brewing Heights taproom at Eubank and Spain is nearly ready to go, as we saw during a quick photo tour of the space on Monday.

While typing up our new update on the changes Bosque is making in Santa Fe, I was reminded that co-owner Gabe Jensen said he expected the Heights taproom to receive its certificate of occupancy by this Friday. Wanting to double check, I contacted co-owner Jotham Michnovicz, who is spearheading the Heights project. That turned into a tour and a confirmation that the hopeful deadline for that certificate from the City of Albuquerque is now May 18, at the earliest.

Michnovicz said they are still waiting on one key piece of electrical equipment, one that was originally expected to arrive months ago, but the shipment has been delayed over and over. Once that arrives, things should move quickly.

Here is a look at where everything is coming together as the construction crews kick into overdrive to get it all ready for a late May opening.

The kitchen area will feature a unique walk-through for the staff along this low wall, where they enter from one door and leave through another to the right behind the hostess stand, which should keep the food rolling out quickly and consistently.
The main interior dining area will fit slightly more people than the Nob Hill taproom.
Looking back towards the main entrance on the east side, with the hostess stand on the left, and a few of the tables and chairs are already unpacked.
Looking from the south end of the taproom towards the bar at the north end, with the restrooms on the right.
A serving window was added to connect the bartenders inside to the patio staff.
The west-facing patio will include plenty of seating, with a planned grass area there at the north end. Fear not, shade sails will be in place to protect everyone from the afternoon summer sun.

It has been a while since we last set foot in an under-construction taproom, and as always, we look forward to the finished product in a couple weeks. A big thanks to Jotham for the tour and additional information.

Keep supporting local!
