Drinking Made Easy 2010
Drinking Made Easy: At more than 7,000 feet above sea level, located in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, Santa Fe, New Mexico is the highest state capital in the United States. Founded in 1607 by the Spanish, 13 years before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock, Santa Fe is also the oldest state capital in the US. With its rich history of Spanish and Mexican influence, it’s also become a premier place for locally made booze. Statewide there are nearly two dozen breweries, almost 40 wineries, and spirits infused with indigenous foods like blue corn and chile. With close to 5,200 bars and restaurants, finding a place to drink, in “The Land of Enchantment,” has never been easier.
