This beer, whose namesake is a playful homage to another new head brewer and good friend, is the real deal; a true classic American style Ale. 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 light spring time beer.
Stars & Stripes is an American premium lager brewed with barley, corn, and freedom. Fermented with lager yeast and freedom. Tastes like freedom. Crisp, bright freedom. This beer is an homage to the post prohibition, mass produced, light flavor lager.

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

THE FITZGERALD SESSION IPA
This IPA contains just one hop variety, Ella from Australia. It possesses a huge grapefruit aroma in the nose and a delicate floral component on the back of the palate. We've intentionally kept the ABV on the lower end for those longer days, summertime sessions.
OG 1.042 / IBU 60 / ABV 4.6%
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. 6.7%, 100+ IBUs.
OG 1.061 / IBU 100 / ABV 6.7
PORK 'n' BREW BROWN
A time honored tradition for Turtle Mountain is producing a brown ale dedicated to pairing well with the delicious barbecue found at Rio Rancho's Pork 'n' Brew over July 4th weekend. This beer is low in alcohol yet still carries a great body and finger-lickin' flavor. Dark chocolate plays on the palette with a humble, balanced hop profile to back it up.
OG 1.046 / IBU 20 / ABV 4.8
PIEDRA LISA PORTER
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.
OG 1.065 / IBU 35 / ABV 5.7
INDIA STUPID ALE
Turtle's entry into the 2014 NM Brewer's Guild IPA Challenge smashes the doors of perception (or more correctly, the ceiling) topping out at 120+ International Bittering Units! A measurement of 100-120 IBUs is widely considered to be the absolute limit of human understanding (or more correctly, discernability). We are rightly proud of our solid 4th place finish in the IPAC, a highly competitive yearly event which showcases why NM brew is consistently among the best in the world.

LA CUMBRE "A SLICE OF HEFEN"
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.
