One of the newest and most trendy kind of businesses will soon be opening in one of the oldest buildings in downtown Alamogordo.
Members of the Alamogordo City Commission have approved a liquor license application for the Picacho Peak Brewing Company to open a brew pub that will go up inside a one-story building at 902 N. New York Avenue.
That structure, which has a footprint of around 3,200 square feet, was built in 1900 and was for several decades the home to a popular men’s clothing store.
The structure was entirely renovated in 2008.
Picacho Peak opened an earlier brew pub, offering a variety of beers on tap, as well as a selection of wine, in the fall of 2015 in Las Cruces at 3900 W. Picacho.
The new Alamogordo brew pub will be opened within the boundaries of the city’s ten and a half square-block Main Street district, an economic development initiative designed to revitalize the downtown area.
According to city documents, the site for the new brew pub is also zoned as a C-3 Business District, which does not prohibit the sale of beer and wine.
If all goes as planned, the brew pub will be opened for business by the end of this summer.
