Great beer and pizza!

We loved the beer flights (we got 6 tasters (5oz) for $12) and we created a build your own pizza that was pretty good! Ours was the vegan mozzarella, which comes in chunks not shredded, with arugula, olives, and bell peppers. Honestly, the cheese added $4.50 to the pizza and with it not being on the entire pizza I'd pass on it next time. It would be great without it and make for a cheaper meal.

Pros: Vegan pizza , Great beer

Cons: Vegan cheese is expensive

Decent pizza, not mind-blowing

Glad they have options for vegan cheese! The pizza is pretty good but not worth the long wait, as this place is always busy. The charred broccolini is where it’s at though! FYI the gluten free pizza crust is not vegan

Pros: Vegan cheese

Cons: Can’t get GF/Vegan pizza, Long waits

Great pizza!

I’m so glad we decided to try out Taos Mesa Brewing. Excellent vegan pizza options, including vegan cheese, and we had an appetizer that they made vegan for us—the broccolini. The beer was also excellent. Top notch service.

Pros: Delicious vegan cheese, Top notch service , Excellently crafted food and beer

Best experience in Taos

We loved this restaurant! The build your own pizza is the obvious choice, which they have vegan mozzarella for. We also had a golden beet salad and broccolini appetizers which were also fantastic. We plan on eating here again before we leave. The staff is super awesome and helpful with veganizing the menu

Pros: Delicious options, Great service

Cons: None!

Omg the pizza!

We went here last night, I had the house salad with no cheese or dressing, they do have 1 vegan dressing though. We also had a mushroom pizza and it was really outstanding, the crust was perfect and the cheese was great. Definitely put this place on your list in Taos!

Pros: Amazing pizza

Cons: Limited vegan options

Exceptional pizza, vegan or otherwise.

Stopped here just because there didn’t seem to be too many dinner places in Taos open on a Wednesday, and I was blown away by how fantastic the pizza was. I can’t believe I almost didn’t go. Delicious homemade vegan mozzarella and a crust good enough for Italy. Great beer as well and a nice vibe - what more could you ask for?

Easy Choice for Vegans

After our original dinner choice didn’t pan out, we were lucky to snag a table on the patio here pretty quickly. My daughters and I enjoyed personal pizzas with vegan mozzarella and a gorgeous house salad (leave off the Parmesan) with lovely lemon vinaigrette. This is a great choice for vegans and omni eaters alike.

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Casual , Friendly staff

Crispy Crust & Vegan Cheese Options

Unfortunate that this part of the country does not have any vegan restaurants, but was happy to find many positive reviews for Taos Mesa Brewery. You would think vegan would be right up the Taos community’s alley, being they are an artist community, but no go. We were happy to find a place that offered a vegan option that was also very tasty! Their pizza, as many others have noted on this website, is indeed very appetizing! We built our own and were happy to wash it down with some very good microbrews too.

Great Option Near the Square

The veggie pizza with the vegan cheese was great, loved that they used pickled onions instead of plain. Loved the crust especially, chewy, flavorful, and speckled with little blackened bits.

Pros: Options were clear and wait staff understood vegan, Good prices

Cons: Not a ton of options

Great beer and pizza

Loved the veggie pizza with vegan cheese- one of the better ones I've had. The beer and cider were great too. Also, there is ample outdoor seating and they take the coronavirus seriously.

Really legit pizza, good beer

We got a vegan margherita and a couple of crowlers to go. The pizza was amazing, with rounds of what seemed to be house-made or other high quality cashew cheese. No daiya crumbles here! A nice surprise.

Pros: Friendly staff

Great vegan cheese!

Yummy pizza (also great beers!). This is a pizza and beer place, so having vegan pizza as the only vegan thing seems legitimate.

Good pizza, not much else for vegans

Came here with a group of omnivore friends and was pleasantly surprised how good the pizza was. The crust and red sauce are vegan, and they offer a tasty vegan mozzarella (not sure what brand- it was in rounds rather than shreds). Lots of good veggies to choose from for toppings- I especially liked the green chile and pickled onions. You can order a 6” personal pizza at lunch but they only offer the larger 12” option at dinner. Apart from the pizza, it is slim pickings for vegans, some vegetarian appetizers though. Some salads can be vegan with some modification.

Pros: Very good pizza

Cons: Not many options
