KUNM Call In Show 10/6 8a: New Mexico is having a love affair with local breweries and distilleries. This week we’ll talk about the economic impact that breweries and distilleries are having on the state. What do you think? How can we help grow and support the industry? How can we make sure it contributes fairly to the economy? 

Sun. 07/05 11a: Tune in to the America's Test Kitchen 4th of July special. This year, it's all about American beer. We speak with historian, author, and self-proclaimed ranter Maureen Ogle about her book Ambitious Brew: The Story of American Beer. We'll be tasting barbecue sauce, and we'll taste test beer with expert Lauren Clark. Then we'll head into the test kitchen to learn how to make the best Memphis-style ribs at home.

New Mexico’s craft beer and winemakers will be able to sell their products in more places come July 1st, 2015.

So this summer when you stop by a brewery you may be able to order a glass of local wine. And if you're visiting a tasting room at a winery, you might be able to order a pint produced at a local brewery.

That’s because New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez signed a few bills expanding markets for breweries and wineries around the state.

Nico Ortiz of Turtle Mountain Brewing Company is excited to sell his beer outside of his taproom.
