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!
OG 1.051 / IBU 25 / ABV 5.1
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 1.054 / IBU 22 / ABV 5.6
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.
OG 1.062 / IBU 100 / ABV 6.7
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:
Our second chapter in the TMBC throwback series is the ever-favorite Arsenal Porter. Our brewers stuck to the old recipe with this one: Plenty of caramel and chocolate malts, complimented by brown sugar in the boil. A mix of American and English hops juxtapose the malt sweetness and what you get is a dark pint filled with roasty aroma, forward bitterness, and a solid dry finish. Thusly named for Arsenal Football Club, a favorite among some of our... more "proper" employees from the other side of the pond. Cheers!
OG 1.064 / IBU 41 / ABV 6.3
A fun, hazy twist on the classic American pale ale. We brewed this pale with a strong wheat backbone, lending to a softer pallet, hazier finish, and more full-bodied mouth feel. Then we picked a few of our favorite hops to add to the boil: Citra, Eldorado, and Amarillo. We feel that these hops really play forward a fantastic citrus, stone fruit, and tropical flavors which pair with the nearly ninety pounds of peach puree added at the end of fermentation. The end result is an amazingly satisfying pale ale with fantastic stone fruit flavors and satisfying finish.
OG 1.053 / IBU 57 / ABV 5.6
This beer is a tribute to the best wintertime sport, our friends from the Great White North, and the suds they drink around the rink. Hockey teeth is an American Lager brewed with six row malted barley, corn, and rice. During the boil, a dash of heirloom hops are added for just the mildest of balance from the multi-cereal mash. The finished product is a pale-straw colored beer with brilliant clarity, extremely mild flavor, and high carbonation. Is it water? No. You skate on water. This is our "macro" lager! Now kick back and enjoy some hockey!
OG 1.040 / IBU 18 / ABV 4.5
Our brewer got his hands on some exciting hops for this IPA and it'll knock you off course. A large percentage of the bitterness came from the fifty pounds of Azacca whole leaf hops added to the wort at the end of the boil. All the color comes from the melanoidin rich flavors of Munich malt. Then, after fermentation had subsided, Mosaic hops were used to dryhop this beer. The result is an astounding assault on your senses. Citrus and tropical fruits abound with a solid backer of "dankyness" to boot.
IBU 99 / ABV 7.2
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.
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.
