After a long day of whitewater rafting, our agenda for the evening was to enjoy a farm to table dinner at The Shawnee Craft Brewery at The Shawnee Inn. The brewery is on the Shawnee Inn premises, which also houses the Shawnee Island Farm where a lot of the produce and herbs are grown.  

Chef Tallada prepared a special 4 course menu for us, comprised of all locally sourced ingredients, many of which came from the Shawnee Island Farm. Each of the courses was paired with one of their beers. It was also lovely to have some of the farmers and local vendors join us for dinner and share their stories.

The Albuquerque (ABQ) beer scene has really thrived in recent years, something I realized only when we started planning our trip. There’s a growing list of local emerging breweries, and on our visit there, we chose 4 breweries to try.  

Tractor Brewing

Tractor was one of our first stops. It’s a great place in the Nob Hill neighborhood to sit back and enjoy a few beers. It has a tractor out front so you won’t miss it, and the inside bar and patio is a good size. They did not have any food, but there were a couple of food trucks outside (turns out there usually are a few there), and many restaurants also deliver directly to their patio! Decent beer selection, nice patio, food trucks…what more can a girl ask for? Oh, and their tagline – Get Plowed!
