The know-how

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Escape - - The Big Story New Mexico -

New Mex­ico is the old­est wine­grow­ing re­gion in the US and has a bur­geon­ing mi­cro­brew­ery and beer scene. Here’s our pick of the best. Three Rivers Brew­ery, Farm­ing­ton The walls of this restau­rant-cum­brew­ery are plas­tered with road signs, car­toons, news­pa­per clip­pings and jokes. The beer is brewed out back, and is de­li­cious – try the Papa Bear’s Golden Honey Ale for starters (from $5.50; three­rivers­brew­ery.com). Pe­cos Fla­vors Win­ery, Roswell For an up­mar­ket wine bar and tast­ing venue, try the Pe­cos Fla­vors Win­ery, which serves a wide se­lec­tion of New Mex­ico wines and beers. It’s home to the fa­mous Alien Ale, as well as green chilli wine and rasp­berry cham­pagne (from $6; tast­ings Mon-Sat; pecos­fla­vor­swin­ery.com/). Taos Mesa Brew­ing, Taos A mu­sic venue that’s a favourite with lo­cals, the Taos Mesa Brew­ing bar has a brew­ery in the back. Here they cre­ate the killer Black Widow Porter ale and the Cologne-style lager Kachina Kolsch (from $5.50; taosmesabrew­ing.com).
