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.

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 1.062 / 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:
Happy 17th anniversary to us! Turtle Mountain has been cranking out high quality pizza and pints since 1999 and to celebrate, our brewery has pulled out all the stops. Starting nearly a year ago, we filled our wine barrels with double stout and dosed them with some funky bugs, brettanomyces lambicus, specifically. After over nine months developing character, we transferred Amethyst and carbonated it. What you find is truly extraordinary. In the nose you'll find aromas of cherry pie abound. This is backed by the smell of tobacco, dark chocolate, horse blanket, and a distinct earthiness. On the palate the dark chocolate and tobacco take over and are complimented by smokiness and what can only be described as "bretty". This unique brett beer is served in 13oz tulip glasses.
OG 1.088 / IBU 51 / ABV 9.3
Pronounced "go-suh", the Gose is a unique style heralding from Leipzig, Germany. Historically, the water available to the brewers in Leipzig was slightly brackish and left a salty flavor in their beers. Gose is brewed with 50% malted wheat, coriander added during boil, and has a very mild hop bitterness. Additionally, the style leans somewhat tart. Our Gose also has a playful twist of pineapple flavor, which was added after fermentation subsided. Overall, this beer offers an uncommon experience worthy of sitting on a patio and having a couple more.
OG 1.040 / IBU 12 / ABV 4.3
For the Bees is an American style lemongrass honey wheat. Notes of lemon, light biscuit, and tropical fruit play in the aroma. Its flavor is heavy on wheat and honey with a nice mild breadiness on the back of the pallet. All in all a very well balanced beer. 4 pounds of lemongrass and 80 pounds of locally sourced honey were used.
IBU 26 / ABV 6.4
The essential spring time German lager. Märzen is in fact the vernal equivalent to the autumnal Oktoberfest; grist to yeast, these two are twins. Märzen features a backbone of Vienna, Munich, and Pilsner malts which offer a light malty sweetness which gives way to gentle toasty characteristics. Noble hop varieties are used to support the authenticity of this style. These continental hops offer up a soft balance to juxtapose the malt sweetness.
OG 1.050 / IBU 23 / ABV 5.6
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.
