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!
5.4% ABV 111 IBU’s
Our third version of our Wet Hopped Session Pale Ale! This year, we picked up 80lbs of Chinook hops freshly harvested that morning from our great friends at High Wire Hop Farm in Paonia, CO. We drove them back to the brewery and added them to the kettle within 5 hours of the hops being harvested! Colorado hops are special and this beer showcases just exactly what Colorado Chinook hops are all about.
CURECANTI CHILE BEER-
6.4% ABV 21 IBU’s
One of our seasonal favorites! We source roasted chiles from our friends at Austin Family Farm in Paonia, CO and add them to a perfectly balanced pale ale. The citrus notes from the hops compliment the roasted chile flavor. Just a slight amount of heat to remind you you're drinking a chile beer!
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!
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!
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.
PANDYFACKLER OUD BRUIN-
7.6% ABV 0 IBU’s
Our Oud Bruin is fantastic brown sour that has been barrel aged in Prisoner and Quintessa Wine barrels for 18 months! Our great friends at Sandia Wine Company provided us with only the finest wine barrels. Mind blowing flavors of dark fruit including plum, cherry and apple, finishing with chocolate and raisins. My Pandy!
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!
