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.

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.

MANNEKEN PALE ALE
Named for the uber-famous statue Manneken Pis found in Brussels, we thoroughly enjoy this light hearted Belgian style Pale Ale. Right up front, the distinctive Belgian spiciness can be found thanks to our Belgian yeast strain. Up next on the palate is a slightly biscuity flavor balanced with fruity esters, again generated from the yeast. To compliment the rich malt profile we used Crystal hops which offer a delicate herbal spiciness and slight citrus aroma.
OG 1.050 / IBU 27 / ABV 5.8
A true German style high-alcohol lager. "keller", meaning cellar, was the traditional way for German style beers to rest and lager. They were unfiltered and unfined. The result is a slightly hazy finished beer. Kellerbock was brewed with 100% German malt and hops, offering up a quite true-to-style lager. Up front in the nose is a slightly sweet, grainy aroma, backed up by a malt forward flavor and a soft hop bitterness to offer some balance.

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.
