LABC News:

The Los Alamos Beer Co-op has made great progress in its recent campaign to open a craft brewery in Los Alamos.

Earlier this summer, the Co-op:

  • purchased a used 3.5 barrel brewing system from Bosque Brewing in Albuquerque; and
  • signed a lease on a brewery and tasting room building in downtown Los Alamos.
