It’s been a story of steady growth for Second Street Brewery. It all began in 1996 when they opened the original brewery. That original brewhouse is still going strong and is in full operation. The year 2010 gave birth to a second location beside the Santa Fe Farmers Market. Then, in 2017 came the Rufina Taproom, and shortly afterward in 2018, Second Street Brewery was packaging and distributing beer statewide to the delight of New Mexico beer lovers.

Stouts, porters, IPAs, it’s here and more.  If you’re not a beer specialist, the experienced staff are all beer lovers and can help you find and sample a favorite.  Our favorites include their English Bitter – Rod’s Best Bitter, Kölsch, or their Boneshaker special bitter.

The Food

An all-important reason to go to any restaurant is the food – fantastic food. That’s what the locals and visitors alike have found here. Choose from a wide range of tempting menu options – you’ll love the large portions too.

The Food

A Gastro-Pub delight.  The food here never disappoints!  We’ve loved the simple foods like Yorkshire Pudding with Gorgonzola Cheese Sauce … oh my Lord, or Wedge Salad. We love their Poutine, Pork Belly Corndog… What?… and their Korean Style Chicken Wings. You simply can’t go wrong!  Their Chicken Biscuit Sandwich or Green Chile Tuna Melt… awesome!
