Bosque Brewing Company is a microbrewery based in New Mexico with taprooms in Albuquerque and Las Cruces. The company produces beers inspired by American and European style traditions that are distributed throughout the state of New Mexico.


Co-Founders Gabe Jensen, Jotham Michnovicz, and Kevin Jameson began Bosque Brewing Company with the intent of designing and producing high-quality, flavorful beers while creating jobs and contributing to the local economy and community. The partners started their initial recipe development in 2010 with full-scale brewing operations beginning in 2012, and then opening for business in October 2012 at the original taproom located on San Mateo Boulevard in Albuquerque. They crafted 6 original house styles as year-round offerings with a select few rotating specialty beers.

After celebrating the company's first anniversary, Bosque moved into an aggressive growth phase that included multiple expansions in facilities, staff, and equipment. John Bullard joined Bosque Brewing in March 2014 as Brewmaster and Director of Brewing Operations. As an award-winning head brewer prior to joining the company, Bullard refined recipes and significantly expanded the company's standard and specialty offerings. The company's second location opened in November 2014 across from New Mexico State University in Las Cruces. One month later the third location opened on the border of the Nob Hill Business District and the University of New Mexico area in Albuquerque. Finally, distribution quickly expanded into more than 150 restaurants and retail outlets across the state of New Mexico.
