Rio Rancho’s Neighborhood Brewpub

Since 1999, we have been serving up the best pizzas, calzones, and grinders from our wood-fired oven, and hand-crafted ales and lagers from our on-premise brewhouse. Come join us for a pint of one of the dozen or so beers we have on tap, in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. Come and see for yourself why locals call us “The Pub”, or simply “Turtle.”

Cosmic Campground

Cosmic Campground

Cascadian Dark Ale (Black IPA)

OG 18°P / IBU 68 / ABV 7   
Brewed in collaboration with our friends at Proximity Malting Co., this beer draws its inspiration from the Cosmic Campground of The Gila National Forest, the first International Dark Sky Sanctuary. Cosmic Campground, the beer, boasts classic Cascade hops in proximity to newer American varietals. Its dark malt doesn’t overwhelm its hoppiness, envisioning a balance between a vast array of fruitiness and the enveloping roasty darkness.
