We tracked down this taproom in a commercial part of town at the recommendation of a former ABQ resident, and we are glad we did. We spent a delightful Fall weeknight evening on the patio enjoying a few of their best beers. There was some...More

The food us good, especially the black bean chili. The best part of this brewery is the atmosphere. We have tried several in the last few weeks and am drawn back here. It has a very homey vibe with good music

We hadn't been here since the name change to "Canteen," but nothing else has changed.There's still a friendly, homey vibe, a large covered dog-friendly patio, knowledgeable and cheerful wait staff and great beer. There are around 6 year round brews along with another 6 or...More

Every time we go to the Canteen, we try a new beer, and are always impressed with how great each one tastes. We went again yesterday (after being disappointed by Sierra Blanca), and tried three different IPA versions - all delicious. We started with the...More

Been here a few times, haven't had a bad meal yet. They have a core group of regular beers and ever changing seasonal offerings. Service has been good at each visit. The patio is pet friendly, which is a plus for us!

Canteen Brewhouse, as it's now called, is a great place to enjoy a craft beer. They have a wide selection of styles. The staff is very knowledgable and enthusiastic about the brews! I had a Kellerbier which our server told me was the result of...More

Stopped here for beers and an appetizer. VERY good beer, just like Il Vicino that has been here in ABQ for long time. Terrific salsa for chips and, of course, great beer!!! A MUST on any ABQ beer tour!

Il Vicino Canteen (which brews beer for all four of Il Vicino restaurants in New Mexico) is an awesome oasis of great beer, food & service! OK - so it's located in an industrial area just north of Candelaria Rd NE. But, they have a spacious & hip new tap room. (fyi - the previous location had a tasting room about the size of a postage stamp.)Beers... Awesome! Well-crafted and very quaffable. The Wet Mountain IPA was great as well as the double IPA. And, they've been wining medals since 1995!Food... It's a tapas-style menu with "Noshes, Salads & Swanky Sandwiches" We had the hot pretzels with spicy, wholegrain mustard and a taste of the Mortadella meat. Both were good. Looking forward to trying one of the Panini sandwiches or the Rotating Meat & Cheese Board.Service... Outstanding! David was a super host. Showed us around from the brewery, the tap room, and the outdoor covered patio. He was very knowledgeable about the beers. His bartenders were the same with a friendly attitude and helpful suggestions.If you like beer, you SHOULD visit here! Wished we lived closer.
