Chili Line Brewing Company

Chili Line Brewing proves they're not your typical brewery by brewing smoked beer on a one-barrel system. If you're a lover of small-batch, locally crafted beer, then Chili Line is the place for you. test

Small Batch, Hand-Crafted

Chili Line specializes in the freshest beers. By only brewing three one-Barrel (31 gallons) batches each brew day, brewers can serve up a beer that was just made, resulting in a deliciously fresh taste. The Chili Line's Flagship Beer menu begins with the option of a flight of beer or a single pint and then moves on to what's on draft. Some of our draft favorites are the Putazo (Pilsner), the Nino Lobo (Wit), the Como Pica (Green Chile), the Fuego (Gotlandsdricka), the Pinche Guey (IPA), and several other seasonal beers. Seasonal beers go off the beaten path with their variety of flavors and tastes, including the Mango Milkshake New England IPA and the Cherry Poppen Smoked Sour.

History of the Chili Line

The Chili Line was a 3-foot, narrow-gauge branch of the Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad (D&RG), running 125.6 miles from Antonito, Colorado, to Santa Fe, New Mexico. The D&RG began construction of the line in 1880, and the route between Espanola and Santa Fe opened in 1886. The line ran down Guadalupe St. before heading towards White Rock Canyon. The D&RG closed the Chili Line in 1941 because it couldn't compete with the increase of drivers on the road. If you ask your bartender at Chili Line for more information about the history, they will hand you the Chili Line book to read.
