From the Owner
When I told my wife that I was going to quit my banking job and open a brewery, she simply said, “Great”! I felt like I was in the middle of my favorite Star Trek: The Next Generation movie. The one where Captain Kirk and Picard get pulled into the “NEXUS,” a heavenly place where everything is perfect. This was my chance to open an establishment that rivaled Captain Kirk’s nirvana. “Oh, my goodness,” I thought, “I have to do this”!

Our Beer Has Made Albuquerque Famous

Our first step was to create great-tasting beer. Not as simple as it sounds, a lot of time and effort goes into our brews before we release them. As a guide, we took a page from Old Milwaukee’s history book and focused on making a beer so great that it would make Albuquerque famous.

Creating The "nexus" Experience

Our next step was to set a unique menu to compliment my family’s New Mexican experience with Soul. After brewing the craft beer that helped make Albuquerque a destination for brew lovers, and after introducing New Mexican Soul Food, we didn’t stop there. Our second location, Nexus Blue Smokehouse, is for those that crave BBQ and those perfectly smoked meats.

Nexus Blue Smokehouse is the best restaurant in Albuquerque for savory brisket that is fall-apart tender, for burnt ends that pair perfectly with our beer, for a big old-fashioned family spread BBQ platter, or that perfect pulled pork sandwich with crisp, tangy sides.

For myself, it doesn’t get much more perfect than that.

Ken Carson,
