Colfax Ale Cellar

215 S. 2nd Street, Raton NM 87740


A quest for brewing quality "fast" and "slow" beers led our founder, Jim Stearns, to open his own brewery.

His four-year long search for the right property led him and his wife to northeastern New Mexico.  They purchased a historic building, originally the Dwyer Building, built in 1908.  With 7,000 SF of cellar space, they plan to fill it with a variety of styles.

Our seating is on a first come, first served basis. However, if you are planning an event, drop us a line and we'll hook you up.
