For travelers that want a hot meal without sacrificing time, a self-serve food will be available. Remember, it’s all about the beer here, try the local and tourist favorite Rio Grande’s Pancho Verde Chile Cerveza, New Mexico’s most popular green chile beer. Rio Grande Brew Pub and Grill is the premier destination for travelers flying in and out of the Sunport.

The first time I went to this pub, I ordered the Pancho Verde Chile Cerveza, as I figured: New Mexico! Green Chile! New Mexican green chile beer! And then, four minutes later, two girls sat down next to me. “All the tourists just get the green chile beer, but they have some really good local ones,” one of them assured the other. Needless to say, it’s true: the Rio Grande & Sierra Blanca Brewers have some genuinely interesting stuff – like the Alien Wheat with curacao bitter orange, sweet orange, and coriander spice, or the grapefruit-and pepper-hinted Rio Grande IPA. And just to be fair – that green chile beer is pretty good too.
