Albuquerque-based, Bosque Brewing Company has signed a new lease at the southeast corner of Central Ave and Girard. The building, formerly occupied by Hollywood Video, is located at 106 Girard Blvd SE, across to the east from the new Panera Bread restaurant/bakery. This will be Bosque's second location, following their initial opening in 2012 at 8900 San Mateo NE.
The new location will have an exceptional bar and indoor/outdoor seating areas. A unique attribute of the new tap room it that it is located at the crossroads of the Nob Hill and University of New Mexico districts, which affords Bosque a unique opportunity to cater to a broad customer base. The new location will have a modern design, abundant parking and will be within walking distance for many pubcrawlers.
Bosque is awaiting their final liquor license approval and expect to open the new pub in mid-2014.
Bosque was started by four friends — Kevin Jameson, Gabe Jensen, Jared Michnovicz and Jotham Michnovicz (pictured above) — who all love craft beer and, in college, became interested in the possibility of opening their own brewery. With help of local lender, ACCION, they have grown to become one of Albuquerque's most well-known local breweries offering hand-crafted beers.
The Ransom-With Team assisted Bosque with site selection and transaction negotiations on both locations. We are very excited about their recent successes and look forward to visiting the new location!
