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.
