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 1.058 / 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.

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:
GOSE WITH THE FLOW
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 HONEY WHEAT
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.
OG 1.058 / IBU 26 / ABV 6.4
This ruby colored ale received a heavy load of hops late in its creation, resulting in a beer that is bursting at the nose with aromas of candied tropical fruit and a gentle spiciness. The light, toasty body of the beer contrasts the juicy scents that lead, resulting in a playful balance between the big, bold bouquet and the subtle softness of the body and flavor. The best part is that with its easy-going ABV, you can go back and forth with this beer all day long.
OG 1.048 / IBU 43 / ABV 4.8

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.

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.
