Off the beaten path brewery tour in Albuquerque - This fine tour was my girlfriends and my first in our vacation to Albuquerque in April '24. The tour ended up being only the two of us and our guide Gorden. Get ready for a in depth dive into the beer making process. We visited three breweries in the Albuquerque area that were outta the way and we would have totally missed if left to our own devices. I Even bought me a souvenir glass at one of the stops. Sit back, relax and let Gorden handle the driving while you enjoy the best craft beer Albuquerque has to offer. Firmly recommend this brewery tour.

Amazing brew tour experience. - This was one of the best Brew tours we’ve been on. The group was so friendly, the beers were delicious, but most importantly, our tour guide Gordon was amazing. He was not only personable, but so knowledgeable about the various beers we tried, as well, as the brewing processs. 5 out of 5 stars.

Great local beer tour led by a great guy - Gordon with ABQ Beer Tours did a great job with our group. We were at a bachelor party in Albuquerque for the weekend, and he brought us to three different breweries. He knows his beer. He explained the different beers to us and provided flavor wheels to help those in the group newer to beer tasting be able to better describe what we were detecting. He was also very relaxed and personable throughout. Our party included an absolute non-beer drinker. Gordon even got along with that guy! Gordon did a great job helping him try different beers that might work with his palate. The food he provided was top-notch hole-in-the-wall perfection—it is billed as an "appetizer" on the site but it was a solid meal. If you love different beers and want to ride around Albuquerque sampling some good local brands, this is your dude.

Amazing Tour - What an incredible experience! We went to three breweries, received tours at all three, and had plenty of samples and pints at each location. The owner Gordon is very knowledgeable on all beer styles as well as the brewing process. Gordon also knows most of the brewery owners and their head brewers so we were warmly greeted at all three locations. I would highly recommend this tour to locals and tourists.
