Brewin' up the future....


Welcome to 550 Brewing


March 18, 2020

Dear Licensee,

ln addition to the March 12th and March 16th letters informing licensees of restrictions on
gatherings and social distancing measures for food and liquor establishments due to the
ongoing COVID -19 epidemic, today Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham further mandated that
all food and beverage establishments suspend on-premises service of food and liquor.

Beginning March 19, 2020 no restaurant, eatery, bar, brewpub, winery or such shall serve
customer for consumption on-premises. Restaurants and bars may be able to take and fulfill
"to-go" orders for food, but under no circumstances shall alcohol, beer or spirits be sold for
off-premises consumption from a restaurant, food establishment, or bar. Off-premises
("package") are still available from package liquor stores; brewpubs in growler, bottled or
canned form; or for package sales from a winery.

We have had many inquiries regarding liquor delivery sales from restaurants. Under New
Mexico law, except for limited shipping of wine, there is no liquor delivery in New Mexico
from any licensed premises, including restaurants.

We are sympathetic to the impact this may have on your business, but please continue to be
vigilant in helping to contain the spread of the virus. Please continue to check our website
for any updates.


Andrew Vallejos
Director, Alcoholic Beverage Control Division.

We want to give a huge thank you to all our employees.
This is a rough time right now and we’ve had to make some unwanted adjustments. 💔
Our employees make this business happen, without them we wouldn’t be able to run either place!


Dear Friends and Patrons:

When visiting the 550 Brewing Taproom please remember that we are located on the fringe of a lovely and quiet neighborhood. When parking, please do the walking because the neighbors should be able to park their cars in front of their houses and should not have to walk. When leaving our establishment, please leave quietly because there are many young children in the neighborhood and they go to bed early just like your kids do.

Although many complain about parking in Aztec, there is usually adequate parking either on Chuska St., Main Ave, down by the Civic Center, the parking lot near Aztec Hardware or by the High School. Please be courteous and take a short walk.

We appreciate our friends and customers and hope you will respect our neighbors and our neighborhood.  There are children in our area that deserve to grow up riding their bicycles on the neighborhood side streets, just like we did.




Please stay tuned for the rest of the story.
