So far, the following breweries are set to compete for this prestigious award:


Bosque Brewing Company


At Bosque Brewing Company, we craft beers that can be enjoyed, debated and discussed at length by everyone from Master Cicerones to burgeoning craft drinkers. We look to create an inclusive community space that brings individuals together through the power of great beer and great conversation. We take pride in pushing the boundaries and norms of craft beer while remaining true to our values and sense of community. We partner with local businesses, growers, and charities to deepen our commitment to New Mexico and stay true to the area that has supported our growth for over five years. We look forward to continuing to create revolutionary products while curating spaces where people feel that they are an integral part of our story.

Kaktus Brewing Co.


Kaktus Brewing Co. was established in 2013 focused on providing the highest quality craft beer while providing an intriguing sustainable environment to complement it. Our Brew master Mark Matheson graduated UC Davis as a master brewer and has been commercially brewing for over 36 years. We pride ourselves on being the first qualified attraction brewery in the state featured to tourists visiting New Mexico. High quality craft beers and pizzas are always featured at our brewery in Bernalillo, New Mexico.

Rio Bravo Brewing Co.


Rio Bravo Brewing Co. is not just a brewery; it’s a destination. The historical Firestone Company abandoned building constructed in 1949 was restored as a Tap Room with a 153-seat bar, large Biergarten, game room, front patio, barrel room for meetings and events, and a large brewing area with glass windows to allow the public to grab a beer and watch our brewers in action. The industrial look was kept as part of the overall theme with heavy-duty beams, original concrete floor and high exposed ceilings, creating a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere. Six big-screen televisions for watching while enjoying one of our carefully crafted beers, including a wide range of styles for every pallet along with local award-winning guest taps on our 32 tap handles. Handmade root beer and cream soda along with New Mexico wines available, too.
