Current Beers On Tap:


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! 

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.

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.

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!

8.0% ABV 25 IBU’s
Our second SMaSH (single malt and single hop) in the Maximus series. Golden Promise malt combined with absurd amounts of Enigma hops. The question mark in the name was chosen after The Riddler, a famous comic book character. We add a majority of the hops in a dry hop schedule, which keeps this beer from getting bitter. Tropical fruit on the nose match up to big melon and citrus flavors in your mouth. So delicious!!!

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!

7.6% ABV 0 IBU’s
A traditional Oud Bruin that was aged on Quintessa and Prisoner wine barrels for 18 months. Big barrel character and slightly sour flavors dominate this very unique liquid. Very limited availability!

11.0% ABV 23 IBU’s
Aged in Prisoner Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Syrah barrels for 14 months. Malty, slightly sweet, and rich! The color went from golden to a dark amber from aging on the wine barrels. Light notes of oak and bread crusts on the finish.


Please stay tuned for details on more beers in this series...
