TMBC HOUSE BREWS:
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.
OG 1.060 / IBU 30 / ABV 6.5
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.
OG 1.061 / IBU 100 / ABV 6.7
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.

The midwinter wind cuts through the world, collecting souls with Odin leading the way. Thankfully, Turtle Mountain's unique winter warmer is here to keep the spirits at bay. Traditionally, a winter warmer is a higher alcohol ale, spiced with yuletide favorites. Our brewer took modest liberties with that tradition: Wild Hunt was fermented as a lager; colder and slower. Additionally, a significant amount of molasses assisted in boosting the alcohol of this flavor-filled winter lager. Orange peel, fresh ginger, nutmeg, and clove were added to the boil to create a surely satisfying warmer, even on those three-dog nights when Odin rides beserker astride the wind. Read about the Wild Hunt.
OG 1.080 / IBU 31 / ABV 7.0
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
Producing a stand out Double IPA in New Mexico is a truly difficult job. "Paying the Devil", a maritime phrase now in common vernacular, refers to such a task. Our brewer bit the bullet, battened down the hatches, kept his shirt on, toed the line, forged ahead, made headway, kept an even keel, and went the full nine yards delivering a first rate DIPA to fit the bill. Predominately featuring Cascade and Chinook hops, Tim's double IPA heralds back to classic northwest style hoptastic beers. The nautical depth of citrus, grapefruit, and pine cannot be overlooked. Resinous and sticky, this beer lingers on the palate, but is not without some semblance of balance. Strong, bitter, unforgiving as the sea, Devil to Pay will call you by name... wanting more.
OG 1.075 / IBU 125+ / ABV 7.7
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.
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.
