Second Street Brewery opened its doors in December 1996 in Santa Fe, NM. Not only were we the first brewery within the city limits of Santa Fe, we were one of New Mexico’s “pre-millennial” operations.  Our objective: provide fresh beer to serve by the pint to a loyal, local clientele.  In addition, we wanted to provide just the right atmosphere and food to enjoy along with that pint.  Like many breweries that started in that same era, our business shouldn’t have worked; we were long on enthusiasm and belief in our mission, but short on business acumen and money – the things required for success.  Thanks to the continued support of our local customers we managed to overcome our challenges and grow.
