ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A website that rates U.S. cities according to what makes them ideal places to live is raising a glass to Albuquerque.

KRQE-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1hfC2pB) that Livability.com recently named Albuquerque “Best Unexpected Beer City” in the U.S.

Brewery owners say they believe the city is on the brink of a business surge in the industry.

While the city is known more for red and green chile, the site says residents have their pick of micro-breweries that consistently have fresh beer on tap.

Chama River Brewing Company, Marble Brewery and Kellys Brew Pub were among those highlighted.

David Facey, assistant brewer at Chama, says residents are starting to want the same quality and bold flavors in beer that they get from chile.
