Thrillist put together a panel of beer experts and came up with a short list of those doing the finest work going…and you owe to yourself to check out their offerings. These are the 32 hottest breweries in America right now and yes New Mexico made the list. 

The 32 breweries on this list range from old-school favorites making new waves to up-and-comers offering destination-worthy pours. As chosen by our own boozy supergroup of beer minds, they're the hottest breweries in America right now. Oh, and be sure circle back soon, because this list will update as often as a tap list.

Here is what they had to say about a local New Mexico brewery: 



Distribution: New MexicoThiss brewery on the banks of the Rio Grande is staunchly standing up for the New Mexico craft brewing scene, like some sort of beer-drenched John Ford western. Boxing Bear brought the cavalry out for a recent run of gold medal-winning beers, including their Featherweight Session IPA at the 2018 North American Beer Awards and another gold earlier in the year for their Chocolate Milk Stout at the prestigious World Beer Cup. I hear a sequel to Rio Grande is in the works where a digitally resurrected (but still past his prime) John Wayne will take on a Boxing Bear voiced by Kevin Hart and played by Glenn Ennis, reprising his role as the bear from The Revenant. Well, probably not. But at least the beer will continue to be great. -- EJG

congrats to Boxing Bear!
