This beer, whose name is a playful homage to another 505 head brewer and good friend, is the real deal. With a simple malt profile of flaked corn and malted barley, McDay's comes off light, bright, and clean with a gentle corn aroma. Just a dash of hops offer a simple balance for this classically American ale.
Our house lager has a light, golden color and soft malt sweetness derived from German pilsner malt. This traditional Munich style Helles lager is kept in check with a beautiful collection of heirloom hops which provide a delicate spiciness. A true thirst-quencher and perfect for warm weather. Prost!

American Amber Ales are noted for having a mutually supportive cast of hops and malt and Okú Amber is no exception. Bright amber colors fill the pint glass as Okú is poured. A nose of light malt sweetness with light spicy rye notes are carefully balanced with soft floral and earthy hop aromas. On the palette the presentation is similar. Okú is our steadfast balanced beer for any time of the year.

PARASOL WHITE PALE ALE
A fun twist on the classic American Pale Ale. With a light, hazy appearance, this beer stands out from the gate. Bring it to your nose and the American hops take over: pine and citrus aromas abound. Your first sip will present a hoppy bitterness kept in check by a gentle wheat malt backing.
OG 1.058 / IBU 50 / ABV 6.5
A "West Coast" American IPA with some serious chops. Right from the gate, the American varieties of hops will catch your attention. Citrus aromas take over your nose with backing floral notes. The tongue quivers as intense bitterness besieges the taste buds. Hopshell IPA is exactly what the craft brew drinker has come to expect from a serious American IPA: complex hop flavor and profound bitterness.

This oatmeal stout is our newest full-time dark beer offering. With a grain bill bragging healthy amounts of rolled oats, flaked barley, and chocolate malt, you're promised a full bodied experience. Flavors of rich dark chocolate and oats play the forward roll with a supremely creamy mouthfeel to follow up. Delicate hints of dried fruit can be found in the nose. We love dark beer, especially in the wintertime and that's where the name comes from, one of our brewer's favorite runs at Taos Ski Valley.

TMBC BREWER'S SPECIALS:
Our brewer got his hands on some exciting hops for this IPA and it'll knock you off course. A large percentage of the bitterness came from the fifty pounds of Azacca whole leaf hops added to the wort at the end of the boil. All the color comes from the melanoidin rich flavors of Munich malt. Then, after fermentation had subsided, Mosaic hops were used to dryhop this beer. The result is an astounding assault on your senses. Citrus and tropical fruits abound with a solid backer of "dankyness" to boot.

NIGHT AT THE ROGGENBURY
This is our next exciting COLLABORATION BEER! We whipped this Roggenbier style ale with Nexus Brewery here in house. A majority of the grain bill was comprised of malted wheat and rye. Traditionally this beer has a slightly more "weisen" characteristic to it but we wanted to keep the banana and clove flavors somewhat subdued. Ripe banana in the nose will tie it all back though. Easy drinking and slightly hazy, this beer is perfect for patio drinking. Please don't yell EMILIO at our servers though.

TIMBER! OAKED IPA
Timber! is a less common twist on the west coast IPA: it was transferred onto lightly roasted American Oak spirals in a bright tank for weeks before being served. The result is a nuanced oak flavor of vanilla and caramel roast mixing and intermixing with the large hop profile to produce a one-of-a-kind IPA experience. The kettle hops were the all-star American Centennial and Cascade hops, but the dry hop was composed of continental hops. This interesting twist compliments the oak woodiness with soft floral, earthy hop character.

APHELION DOUBLE STOUT
The Aphelion is the point in an orbit furthest from the sun. It's a dark and formidable place, not unlike our double stout. This chewy dark-as-night ale promises of dark chocolate and roast in the nose and it follows through with its promises. A big bodied swig of Aphelion brings with it dark chocolate, roast, and even some ripe fruit flavors.
OG 1.088 / IBU 51 / ABV 8.0
LA CUMBRE: A SLICE OF HEFEN
We proudly welcome La Cumbre's flagship Hefeweizen to our guest taps. This beer is served mit hefe, with a voluminous white head. The aroma is everything we love in the style; clove, banana and vanilla. The body is rich and creamy, yet finishes fairly dry and is as refreshing as any beer you'll drink here or anywhere else.
BOSQUE BREWING COMPANY: SCOTIA SCOTCH ALE
Deep amber color with a chewy mouthfeel. This giant is brewed in the "wee heavy" style of Scotch ales and is heavy on the alcohol, caramel, and malty sweetness.
