About Us

About Us


A quest for brewing quality "fast" and "slow" beers led our founder, Jim Stearns, to open his own brewery in Raton.  His four-year long search for the right property led us to Northeastern New Mexico.  They purchased a historic building, originally the Dwyer Building, built in 1908.  With 7,000 SF of cellar space, they plan to fill it with a variety of styles.  Come sample our craft beer in our cozy tap room in Raton!

Live Music


Our local music scene is popping and we wanted to showcase some of the best talent around and from afar. Come by on Friday or Saturday evenings to enjoy live music. Who knows, maybe you'll find your new favorite band!

Check out our Menu & Events page for the lineup of upcoming entertainment.



What bar would be complete without a few games to blow off steam? After you grab a drink, feel free to play any of our board games!
