Tall Pines Beer and Wine Garden

Sit Back and Relax at Tall Pines Beer and Wine Garden

So, you’re in the scenic mountain village of Ruidoso, enjoying the lazy, hazy days of summer, and you’ve talked yourself into taking a break to plot your next moves. A place to unwind, think and enjoy an engaging conversation. Something a bit different, but yet appealing. Consider the Tall Pines Beer and Wine Garden for your next intriguing experience.

The Story Behind the Garden

The personable and hospitable couple, Tamara and Tyler Stucky of Houston, wanted to return to the cool pines of Ruidoso after a 15 year absence. “We wanted to get back here,” Tamara explained. “Tyler had spent 22 years in the beer and wine industry so it only seemed natural we would look to establish a business along those lines. My husband and I took a leap of faith and relocated here. We desired a place of business with a comfortable, quaint, cozy environment. We believe we succeeded in that endeavor because we have heard our customers use those very words when talking about the Tall Pines Beer and Wine Garden. The Tall Pines Beer and Wine Garden opened their doors Nov. 18, 2016.

“The large outdoor patio, which can seat 50 people (49 inside), sold us on the advantageous location we now inhabit. Our customers have a ringside seat to the consistent ‘drum beat’ of vehicle and foot traffic on Sudderth Drive.”

On warm days, patrons may enjoy the “water mister” to cool down, while imbibing in a selection of 17 craft beers or 20 different wines. Tamara also offers a great cheese platter to accompany the liquid refreshments. It is replete with several gourmet cheeses, crackers, salami, nuts, olives and fruit. People are also welcome to bring food from local restaurants to this inviting establishment.

Upcoming Schedule

Starting on June 21, every Wednesday will present a wine tasting with a cheese platter for one for $18 from 6 to 8 p.m. Four different tastings are included with reds and whites, some dry and some sweet. Live music will be featured with a variety of local and out-of-state performers.

“Thirsty Thursday” will offer $1 off all wine and beer. If you’re a cigar aficionado you might like to try a wide selection of cigars on hand in the humidor inside. Every day the Tall Pines Beer and Wine Garden gives all who served in the military, law enforcement, fire and EMS personnel a 10 percent discount to honor their service. It is family and dog friendly and caters to all ages. The Tall Pines offers beer and wine packages to go as they have a package license. Off-street parking is available next door through the generosity of the Kenneth Wyatt Gallery. If you come before 5 p.m. you are asked to please park on the Tall Pines side of the lot. After 5 p.m. patrons may park in the general lot.
