To our craft beer community,

It is with a heavy heart that we share that Chama River Brewing Co. has officially closed its doors. Since opening in January 2005 when the craft brewing seen was just getting off to a start in Albuquerque, Chama River was pursuing perfection in everything we did, from choosing ingredients, to experimenting with new flavors, to honing our technique. Over the years Chama River has seen its share of talented brewers working their hop magic in the brewery, in fact many of the brewers at some of your favorite New Mexico breweries got their start at Chama River.

Chama River’s partners at Santa Fe Dining are working to reassign many of our talented staff members, cooks and brewers over to our sister brewery at Kellys in Nob Hill and our other Santa Fe establishments. We want to thank everyone who has worked at Chama River over the years. Your talent and passion is the solid foundation that Chama was built on.

We are incredibly grateful for all of our customer’s encouragement and support over the past 12 years and look forward to enjoying a beer with you around town.

Sincerely,
The Chama River Brewing Co. team
