|Sampling at Santa Fe Brewery|
|Second Street Brewery, Santa Fe|
Before leaving for Santa Fe, I did some research and targeted four companies. The first place I stopped and actually visited twice was Second Street Brewery by the railroad tracks on, of all places, Second Street. I quickly explained I was doing a photo story and was immediately welcomed in. Actually, one thing I found with all of my visits was how darn friendly everybody was once they found out I was doing a photo story on breweries. Maybe it was the intense smell of hops in the breweries or maybe they are sincerely nice folks! Anyway, I fancied a few of their beers and settled on the India Pale Ale. We all have different tastes. I just don’t care much for the highly bitter beers. I also had to remind myself that these beers often come with a kick (higher in alcohol content). It was hard to say no, but I did need to keep my camera straight. Rod Tweet is the able brewmaster there. Thanks for your hospitality, Rod. I liked it so much I came back a second time.
