Heading home from the Great American Beer Festival last week I swung through the town of Las Vegas (New Mexico, that is) to look again for the Rough Rider Brewery. It was supposed to open in the spring, and by mid-simmer one local brewer asked me if I’d had the beer.
We drove through Las Vegas in September, but didn’t know the address (and didn’t realize we’d driven past the brewery – despite the sign pictured here you can miss it).
The brewery is located at 400 Grand (in case you get there before I), in a building that previously housed Fred’s Lumber.
I looked in the windows, and beyond a couple of motorcycles couldn’t see much. But the walls of one room are decorated with wallpaper that looks to be barley. I also spotted a bag of grain. Good sign.
