The Buffalo wings here are made from a very unusual recipe with Chipotle and orange marmalade. To die for! Oktoberfest is the best around!

Well hidden behind some scrubby trees on a residential street, High Desert is easy to miss. Maybe this is by design. I believe if the secret got out how good their beers are, they might be overwhelmed. Having never been here before, and knowing nothing about their brews, I had no expectations. Looks often being deceiving, neither the exterior nor... More

This place is pretty awesome. Me and my wife cane this time with another couple. We brought our dogs this time and hung out on the patio. I have to say it's hard to find a establishment that allows pets on their patio. But this place is awesome and the staff are the friendliest people I have ever met. We... More

Long day in the car from Carlsbad Caverns, was looking for a good brew pub. Found it in High Desert Brewing Co. The place is an old converted house, so feels like you're dropping in on friends. Food does the trick (not a foodie place). Friendly and unpretentious, and as their shirt says " none of our beers suck!"

This place was nice, clean, and quiet, with a laid back vibe. We went on a Sunday evening. The place was about 2/3 full. We had the October fest and the pilsner. Both were tasty and served cold! We also tried the brats. Cooked through but still had the snap in the skin. Toasted buns with saurkraut and spicy mustard... More

We had great food, burgers, chili stew, sweet potato fries. I like the root beer and the men like the beer. Different days different beer is available

The beer was pretty good. The food was nothing to be impressed about. Regular bar food with burgers and things. It wasn't a bad experience.

Visited with family & friends- shared a HUGE plate of extra yummy nachos! Small is not in the vocabulary at this brewery- the special was a pulled pork sandwich- it was ginormous Great place to visit for a gathering, after work happy hour, or just dinner! No beer at this place sucks! 😋

Totally unassuming place. Great beer - Imperial Irish Red, IPA and Amber Ale, great prices. Perfect bar food - I had the turkey, bacon guacamole sandwich, spouse had the Reuben. Both were just what we wanted. Relaxed, bar vibe with live music Thursdays and Saturdays and warm, personal service. We are new to town, this joint is in our new... More

My wife and I have just finished having another good meal here. My wife had the Reuben and I had the hot green chili cheese burger. Very good
