America's Best Beer Cities
No. 18 Santa Fe, NM
Art galleries and cool shopping, such as indie boutiques and flea markets, made the biggest impression on Travel + Leisure readers. When you’re ready to take a shopping break, head to the Marble Brewery, whose wheat ale features New Mexico wildflower honey, and whose rooftop beer garden overlooks the Santa Fe Plaza—a prime spot for soaking up live music during the popular summer season. The Blue Corn Brewery does beer dinners throughout the year, while the Santa Fe Brewing Company sells Chicken Killer Barley Wine, a beer that hits the 10 percent mark for alcohol content.
