BEERS NOW on tap:
GUNNY GOLD KÖLSCH-
5.1% ABV 22 IBU’s
Our Kölsch is brewed using very traditional methods and presents very similar to those you'd drink in Köln, Germany. Light and crisp with noble hop aroma and flavor. A hit with all beer drinkers!
GREEN GATE IPA-
6.7% ABV 85 IBU’s
A true West Coast IPA for hopheads and folks looking to expand their palates with a very special beer. Made with two row, crystal malts and select hop varieties that take the stage. Citrus and stone fruit (think peach and apricot) flavors are gathered from copious amounts of Citra and Mosaic hops. A taste explosion in your mouth.
SLASH TURN HAZY IPA-
6.5% ABV 50 IBU’s
Now that the hazy or New England IPA is officially a Brewer's Association beer style, we decided it was time to make one for ourselves. Developed by our Head Brewer, Nick Lawson, Slash Turn is FULL of oats and hops. A creamy mouthfeel and serious tropical and citrus flavors take charge in your mouth. Do yourself a favor and come in for this really delicious beer!
GALAXIUS MAXIMUS SMaSH HAZY DOUBLE IPA-
7.5% ABV 30 IBU’S
What in the world is a SMaSH Hazy Double IPA? SMaSh is an acronym for Single Malt and Single Hop. In this case, we used Golden Promise as the malt and Galaxy hops. Combined with water and yeast, this simple beer is incredibly flavorful. Pineapple and passionfruit juice ride a velvety soft rocket ship of goodness.
ANTHRACITE AMBER ALE-
6.1% ABV 25 IBU’s
This amber ale is delectably caramelly and finishes with a light citrus flavor due to the Cascade hops used in the brewing process.
OLD CRANK BARLEYWINE-
9.8% ABV 82 IBU’s
Barleywine is one of our favorite styles of beer. We created our version of an American style Barleywine and we've been aging it in Prisoner and Quintessa wine barrels for 20 months. The result is a very refined and complex liquid. Available now!
ABERDEEN CHOCOLATE MAPLE PORTER
6.6% ABV 26 IBU’s
Back by popular demand! The Aberdeen is named after a local rock quarry from many years past. This rock solid porter is everything you’d ever want from your porter. Cacao nibs from West Africa are infused with fresh organic maple syrup from our friends at Vermont Sticky. We blend this into the beer to combine some of our favorite flavors. This drinks really well for breakfast next to your maple bar doughnut!
SOL'S ESPRESSO STOUT-
6.0% ABV 33 IBU’s
A delightful chocolate stout that has been infused with just the right amount of espresso from our friends at Tributary Coffee Roasters right here in Gunnison, CO. A perfect breakfast beverage that also pairs perfectly with our Guadalupe BBQ pizza or one of our desserts like our house-made Beeramisu!
9.6% ABV 32 IBU’s
The beer we wait for all year. The Maiden is barrel aged on Deerhammer barrels for twelve months and what comes out is the finest liquid you can find on earth. Silky and smooth mouthfeel, with pure decadent chocolate aroma. The chocolate doesn’t stop there- dark chocolate, vanilla, caramel and bourbon flavors explode on your tongue. The finish is nothing short of incredible- oak and chocolate drops continue to linger on your tongue until you have the next sip.
