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 1.064 / IBU 50 / ABV 7.0
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.

PIEDRA LISA PORTER
Our house dark ale is a robust porter which features a roasty but not smokey nose and a dry, balanced palette which hints at light chocolate and coffee flavors. A moderate hop bitterness compliments the dark malt composition well. Named for one of the many hiking trails in our beloved Sandia Mountains.

CASCADE PALE ALE
This simple, satisfying, pale ale features only Cascade hops, a classic American hop in pale ales. Grapefruit flavor is pronounced on the palette and carries a beautiful citrus nose. Additionally, this single-hop ale was brewed with sessions in mind; It's modest hop profile proves exceedingly quaffable, while it's lower alcohol content makes for extended drinking times with good friends.
OG 1.042 / IBU 38 / ABV 4.4
"RIO GRANDE TORTOISE" INDIA BLACK ALE
A perfect example of the wonderful, collaborative spirit of New Mexico breweries, this pitch black hop bomb is the brain child of our head brewer, Tim Woodward, and the head brewer from Bosque Brewing Co., John Bullard. Together they assembled the recipe and brewed on premise here at Turtle Mountain. The result? An assault on your senses. This beer is black as night but don't be fooled, its color certainly doesn't dissuade its hop attack. Loaded with American hops, the drinker will find huge citrus and tropical fruit notes and a resinous, piney bitterness. We hope you enjoy drinking this stealthy IBA as much as we enjoyed collaborating to make it for you.

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.
