Pandemic or not, Red River Brewing is still serving up your favorites

Red River Brewing might not be open for dine-in during this coronavirus pandemic, but the team is still finding ways to bring their menu, beer and spirits to their customers.

In this case, that means free delivery for those living in the Red River area and in the Upper Valley, Sharon Calhoun, co-owner of Red River Brewing, said.
As for the menu, the only slight change is that there is no longer a dinner selection. Red River Brewing is still serving up delicious burgers and sandwiches, soups and salads.

If a burger happens to sound too heavy, then you can go for an appetizer like edamame with sea salt or soft pretzels served with cheese. They even have cheese curds.
They have a beer selection that is sure to impress many, too. If you like light beer, you might like the Lazy Bear Blonde, a “clean and light, easy drinking blond ale with notes of freshly baked biscuits.” If you’re a fan of IPAs, you might want to go for the Bad Medicine Honey DIPA, which has a slight splash of honey but is described as “easy drinking, well-balanced ale.” The beer is made with water locally from the area and grain from Monte Vista, Colorado.

Those beer selections and spirits came from the mastermind and head brewer Chris Calhoun — son of Sharon and Michael Calhoun, the owners. He has a background in chemistry and biology, but realized his heart was in crafting beer and spirits, so he took his talents in that direction — and so far, it’s seems to have worked.

Having been open up for two years this Memorial Day, Red River Brewing has quickly become the spot for locals — and those from the surrounding areas. For tourists, Red River Brewing has been just as important.

Since the pandemic started, the team at Red River Brewing has been following the guidelines laid out by the governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham, such as wearing masks and gloves around customers and when handling food.

“We’ve been doing it the whole time,” Sharon Calhoun said. “March 15 was when we limited seating capacity, and a few days later it shifted to takeout and delivery.”
Right now, with a little extra free time since there is no dine-in, the team at Red River Brewing has been cleaning up the dining area for when the place is ready to open inside to customers. Calhoun said that they have also updated the outdoor bar area, plus a little extra.

“We redid our outdoor bar and community table,” she said. “We took out a door and turned it into a wall for more storage space. Just a ton of little projects.”
Red River Brewing sells a line of merch on its website like shirts and hoodies.

And while Calhoun is ready for business to go back to the way it once was, she understands the need for safety. But more than anything, she is happy to have the support of the customers.

“We appreciate your support,” Calhoun said. “We’ll be here ready and waiting for you once we are open.”
