The New Mexico Dark Side Brew Crew is a collective of craft beer-loving writers, who love our bizarre home state and all of its quirkiness, but especially the local breweries. We endeavor to cover every in-state brewery, major event, and any additional beer-related news that crosses our proverbial desks. We seek to promote the local scene by offering timely news and updates, and always encourage people to share their own opinions on every subject, from the quality of the beer to the events and more.
The Crew is led by Stoutmeister (Chris Jackson), our editor and lead writer, who has 16-plus years of professional media experience. The other founding members are Franz Solo, a lover of hops, Viking poetry, and metal; Brandon, a lover of porch beers, hockey, and metal; Porter Pounder, our resident film geek and foodie; and emeritus members Shilling, who’s back in school, and E-Rock, who has become a vagabond musician.
We have since been joined by Luke, the Craft Crusader, who covers the scene in Santa Fe. We also have our Brew Crew Bullpen, with Adam, Julie, Kristin, Laura, Reid, and Vicki, who help us out whenever they can. Throw in staff photographer Mario Caldwell, and that rounds out our group. Interested in writing a guest post? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or via any of our social media platforms.
See you around the breweries. Drink local, drink proud.
