As Our San Mateo Doors Close, New Journeys Begin

Almost seven years ago, Bosque Brewing Co. poured its first beer at our San Mateo location. Since then, it has grown to four locations throughout New Mexico. Today, we announce that our beloved original location at 8900 San Mateo Blvd. NE in Albuquerque is set to close near the end of March. We plan to build Bosque Open Space Project just up the road from our San Mateo location on Venice and the I-25 frontage road, however at this time we have yet to break ground due to unexpected setbacks and delays.

We would like to express our profound gratitude to every guest who has had a pint with us over the years. You have been a huge part of making Bosque what it is today. As our doors at San Mateo close, a new brewery and distillery will take its place. La Reforma, led by John Gozigian and Jeff Jinnett, will renovate the space. Bosque Brewing Co. will be a silent partner in the brewery.

From here, we ask you to join our coworkers as they begin a new adventure down the street at Restoration Pizza located at 5161 Lang Ave. NE. Restoration Pizza is slated for a late March or early April opening. As the name suggests, we will serve pizza along with Bosque beer in a communal dining setting. What will make Restoration Pizza truly unique is that we will integrate our workforce with differently abled individuals, giving us the opportunity to work with the disabled community. We have worked with the supportive employment community to help properly staff and train this new endeavor.

In the meantime, we hope you will join us as San Mateo goes out with a bang. We are hosting a block party in the taproom, brewery, and parking lot on Saturday, March 30 from 6 to 9 p.m. Our loyal patrons and staff will enjoy Bosque beers accompanied by live music, food trucks, and local vendors. Stay tuned for more information on the closing party.

Once again, thank you for sharing many years of beers and memories with us at San Mateo. Until the Open Space Project opens, you can still visit us at Bosque North in Bernalillo, the Public House in Nob Hill, and in Las Cruces at the Public House and Beer Bar. Cheers!
