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.

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:
Schwarzbier, German literally meaning "black beer" is a dark German style lager which looks quite dark but drinks rather light in flavor. Aromas of roast and chocolate are subdued and a pleasant grain sweetness is delicately balanced by heirloom hops. We took a whimsical twist on the classic style by adding more than 120 lbs of fresh black currant berry puree to our beer after fermentation subsided. The flavors compliment wonderfully to produce a fantastic and unique pint.

Not to be left behind in the current brewing trends, our brewery staff took on the tricky new style referred to as a kettle sour: a batch of wort (the "sugar water" generated from the barley and wheat mash) allowed to sour in the boil kettle for a number of days, then boiled, cooled, and fermented as usual. Paying homage to the classic cherry, or kriek, lambic, we dosed our kettle sour with cherry puree. Overall the beer presents in a curious pink color with aromas of ripe cherry in the nose and a distinct tartness on the palate leaving you wanting more.

SLACK TIDE SESSION IPA
Slack Tide is our newest Session IPA featuring our newest hop variety: Dr. Rudi! Dr. Rudi hops hail from New Zealand and offer up a big, bold nose of orange peel, and pine which is definitely found in this hop-forward ale. Also featured are the classic Amarillo and Cascade which round out the hugely citrus, slightly resinous nose and flavor. The grain bill features our house pale malt, German Munich, crystal malt for color, and a dash of honey malt for an added complexity. As for the name? Slack tide is a period of tidal motion where, for a short period of time, no forces are acting on the ocean. Boy, doesn't that sound relaxing... and if you haven't noticed, our head brewer is slightly enamored by the sea. Cheers!

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.
