Santa Fe Brewing Company
Santa Fe, NM – The brewery was founded in 1988 when founder Mike Levis began brewing the Pale Ale that remains the Santa Fe Brewing flagship today. Brian Lock and three other partners bought the brewery in 1996 and Brian took over as sole owner in 2004. The company has experienced rapid growth, focusing on organic growth with a commitment to brewing high quality beer and, as a result, have developed a loyal customer base. Their plan is to grow the number of products and amount of sales in the states they are already distributing into and gradually add new states and distributors. They are continually adding new craft beers to their roster. They’ve received assistance from the New Mexico Manufacturing Extension Partnership, the New Mexico Department of Workforce Solutions and the Santa Fe Community College. They also received a small business loan from the New Mexico Small Business Administration and a USDA grant to install solar power.
