Brewery boom helps New Mexico economy

Albuquerque, N.M. - A flood of beer brings with it a boost to New Mexico's economy.

The brewery industry's impact is estimated at about $265 million.

Over the past few years, microbreweries and taprooms have sprung up all over the state, and New Mexico colleges and universities are working on fermentation science programs and other brewing industry-based classes.

Chris Goblet, the head of the New Mexico Brewers Guild, says the awards bestowed on local brew masters have increased interest in the industry.

As breweries continue to thrive and expand, elected leaders say the industry's potential cannot be denied.
