About Bosque Brewing

Home is a feeling. To us, New Mexico feels like home, and we want others to experience that same feeling here. The natural beauty, diversity, and resources of this place has captured our hearts and we are proud to call it home. However, not everyone who lives here experiences that same feeling of welcome and belonging. The journey many take to seek their true identity can leave them feeling lonely, isolated, and without a place where they experience that feeling of home.

At Bosque, we believe that people need people, no matter where they are on their journey. We seek to cultivate that sense of welcome and belonging by bringing people together over the experience of sharing a great beer and eating a meal. The simple act of eating and drinking together builds community by helping us to see our similarities and grow in appreciation of our differences. It is comforting for people to know they are not alone on their journey. Their inclusion and sense of belonging to a greater community empowers them to give to and serve their community in return, resulting in a greater sense of personal fulfillment. New Mexico is an amazing place, and we want everyone to experience that feeling of home here.

Since opening our original taproom and brewery in 2012, we have established six taproom locations and have built a package and draft beer retail footprint in thousands of points of distribution across the state of New Mexico. With 250 current employees and new locations on the horizon, we are looking for a growth minded individual to join our senior leadership team as we embark on this next phase of our journey.
