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:
CHALLENGER DEEP BLACK IPA
India Black Ales, colloquially known as Black IPAs, came into vogue a few years ago and maintain a strong fan base. It's a fun challenge, producing a dark beer which doesn't drink like a dark beer: minimized roast astringency, soft chocolate flavors without huge amounts of body, and highlighting a bold hop profile both in the nose and mouth. The result is Challenger Deep, named for the deepest part of the Marianas Trench. Challenger Deep boasts flavors of orange peel and citrus with a strong hop bitterness to finish.
OG 1.065 / IBU 74 / ABV 6.7
GOURD DAMMIT PUMPKIN BROWN
Ah, yes. Autumn. The season of changing leaves, crisp fresh, fall air, and pumpkin spice in EVERYTHING. We know you love it. Don't worry, we won't tell. In the spirit of the season our brewing staff brewed a pleasant brown ale featuring a gentle malt sweetness with flavors of caramel and coffee nuttiness, and threw in your favorite pumpkin pie spices. The result is exactly what you'd expect; a pumpkin pie spiced brown ale! Bundle up, have a pint, and enjoy your fall-time indulgence.

This German style altbier heralds back to the old days of brewing; Alt bier even translates to "Old Beer", referencing the ale fermentation which produces this beer. Taking a sip, you'll find a clean yet robust and complex aroma of rich malt, noble hops and restrained fruity esters. Altbier is one of the only styles of beer we filter at Turtle Mountain, producing a vividly clear copper-colored ale that we take pride in making just for you. Prosit!
OG 1.050 / IBU 40 / ABV 5.7
BLACK HOLE SUN SOUR
If you enjoy bracingly sour beers then you're in luck! Our brew crew took half of a batch of our black currant black lager, "After Midnight", and dosed it with lactic acid. This beer base is a black lager which is dark in color but without the flavor intensity of stouts and porters. Add to it the deliciously complex flavor of currant berries and a bold tartness from lactic acid and you have a pucker-worthy pint!

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.
