BERNALILLO, N.M. - Business in Bernalillo appears to be booming.
Last week, a new hotel opened at Santa Ana Star Casino. And on July 30, Bosque Brewing Company will open its fifth location.
Manager Ezekiel Gomez says it's a vision the company had about two years ago.
"We have four locations currently. We have two in Las Cruces and two in Albuquerque. (We have) one in Nob Hill and one in Alameda because of Balloon Fiesta Park," Gomez said.
The newest location is a two-story building that will give Bosque Brewing a chance to try something new.
"We're excited to have two breweries. One that can focus on specialty beers; styles that we haven't done before that we're really excited to experiment with," Gomez said.
The new brewery is expected to produce 4,000 barrels of beer per year, adding to the 10,000 barrels produced by the other locations in the same amount of time.
The new location won't just have beer, it will serve food as well.
"We are gonna have a food counter that we believe we are going to be calling 'Bosque Bites'. It's gonna kind of work like a food truck but, you know, it's inside. That's new for us," Gomez said.
Gomez said more than 50 employees were hired and most are from Bernalillo. Gomez says he's excited for what the company will offer Bernalillo.
"I hope it's gonna be a cultural hub of Bernalillo," Gomez said.
Bosque Brewing Company also announced it will be moving its San Mateo location. It will relocate to Venice Ave. and Pan American Freeway in 2019.
The company is also hoping to open "Restoration Pizza" in the same year. Gomez said it will be a place where people can enjoy pizza and beer.
