After pulling distribution from two states last year, Santa Fe Brewing Company is re-focusing its efforts on growing sales in its home state of New Mexico and seven other core markets. Santa Fe director of sales and marketing Jarrett Babincsak told Brewbound that the company decided to dig deeper in its eight-state footprint due to the increasingly more difficult challenge of selling beer away from a home territory.

- Santa Fe Brewing Company is New Mexico's original craft brewery, bringing the spirit of the southwest to drinkers near and far. In 1988, three cowboys with some used equipment, a high tolerance for risk, and a dream to make something that tasted more like beer than water started the brewery with their first pale ale. Santa Fe Brew Co. has been crafting, canning, and conducting general experiments with malt, barley, hops, and water ever since. They've come all the way from those humble beginnings to having the capacity to brew 30,000 barrels a year, locations in Santa Fe, Albuquerque, and El Dorado, New Mexico, and distribution in 8 states. The SFBC beer lineup includes the #1 selling craft beer in NM, "Happy Camper," as well as BeerSyndicate.com's #1 German Style Pilsner made in the US "Freestyle Pilsner," new fan favorite 7K IPA, and a wide range of other world class beers..

But be sure to get there early because these beers disappear faster than Santa up a chimney.
