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:
PHANTOM SUN PALE ALE
A truly steadfast style which we love to feature on a regular basis here at Turtle Mountain.

Cheers!

Translation: MUNICH, the Bavarian city famous for its traditional lagers & DUNKEL meaning dark. TMBC's Munich-style dark lager is satisfying, to be sure. Dark brown in color yet vibrantly clear, Munich Dunkel pours with a lasting off-white head and a delicious malty aroma. Rich flavors of cocoa and toffee take the forefront on the palate, but the malt sweetness doesn't overwhelm as a subtle earthy hop profile finishes the flavor.

BATTLE ROYALE RED
Enter TMBC's newest hopped up ale: Battle Royale Red. Pouring a vivid red color, when you bring this beer to your nose you'll get a full load of hops. Centennial hops, a true American classic variety, are the headliner in this hop bill. Of course the hop bill can't be out-shined. Crystal and amber malts are to thank for the color, with a little help from a dash of roast. The result is a satisfying, hoppy American Red ale ready to fight to the finish.

CAFÉ BELLA COFFEE PORTER
We love Rio Rancho. We also love coffee, so our brewer teamed up with our good friends at Café Bella Coffee to pick out the most delicious, great smelling coffee we could. The result is our coffee porter. Featuring coffee beans micro-roasted in the metro area, this coffee is a single origin, fair trade, organic bean from Chiapas, Mexico, and man oh man is it wonderful. At just over one pound per barrel, the coffee plays an important, but balanced part of this palate pleasing porter.

LA CUMBRE: A SLICE OF HEFEN
We welcome La Cumbre's Hefeweizen to our lineup of house beers. 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.
