RED for Website.png
  • 8% ABV | 60 IBU
  • OG 17 (1.068)
  • FG 4 (1.016)

A red mahogany, American IPA with classic "C" hop character. Malty and sweet with a touch of roast and a medium full body. 


SBB Lager for Website.png
  • 6.5% ABV
  • 25 IBU

A smooth, easy drinking lager made with top quality German ingredients.  Fermented low and slow and left to lager to perfection. Full of malty overtones with Noble hops added for balance. So good we put our name on it. 

AMBER for Website.png
  • 5.4% ABV | 30 IBU
  • OG 13 (1.052)
  • FG 3 (1.012)
  • 2.4 vol

An amber ale in the English tradition. Sparkfitter Amber balances toasty malts, earthy hops, and fruity yeast to achieve a classic, pub-style bitter.

KOLSCH for Website.png
  • 5% ABV | 25 IBU
  • OG 11 (1.044)
  • FG 1.5 (1.006)
  • 2.75 vol

A light and dry easy-drinking Kolsch-style ale brewed with German pilsner malt and German hops, fermented cool resulting in a clean, refreshing brew with an herbal, lemon hop character.

  • 5% ABV | 40 IBU
  • OG 12.5 (1.050)
  • FG 3.2 (1.013)
  • 2.4 vol or nitro

An American take on an Irish classic. This dry stout is full of cocoa and roast with notes of dates and dark fruit. Brewed to session strength with drinkability in spades. Served on Nitro and CO2. 

WIT for Website.png
  • 6% ABV | 15 IBU
  • OG 12.5 (1.050)
  • FG 1.3 (1.005)

Combines bready, wheat notes with classic orange & coriander spicing. Bursting with flavor and prickly carbonation, The Village Wit finishes refreshingly dry. 

Raspberry Dynamite for Website.png
  • 5.8% ABV
  • 5 IBU

The latest in our kettle sour series is inspired by the Napoleon. Not the famously undersized general, but rather, the flaky, cream-filled pastry.  We began the process with a wheat heavy grain bill which we ran off and kettle soured before boiling with lactose, a milk sugar. We then added a ridiculous quantity of pure raspberry puree to the fermentation and let it all bubble away until the flavors developed and the yeast was finished.  What resulted is a fantastically fruit-forward brew with a raspberry aroma, striking appearance, and a refreshingly sweet/tart finish.  We had fun with this one!


Cow Plow BROWN for Website.png
  • 4.7% ABV
  • 25 IBU

Cow Plow Brown Ale gives a nod to the days of yore when locomotives had to forge the way across the U.S. We patterned this beer after a Northern English or Nut Brown Ale so look for some nuttiness, a touch of chocolate, and a medium dry finish. Cascade hops are added for balance and our house English Ale yeast strain provides a hint of fruitiness to round out a sessionable pint.  

Skull Crusher DIPA for Website.png
  • 9.2% ABV  
  • 100 IBU

Skull Crusher is back after screaming demand. Bigger, badder, and even hoppier! Two dry-hop additions on top of a ridiculous multitude of kettle hops have resulted in a hop bomb that combines classic American hop character with a touch of the tropical to boot. All of this hop madness is held up by a malt bill comprised of Proximity base, light and dark Munich, a medium crystal, and some flaked barley for body and a little haze. This one packs a punch so please enjoy responsibly.  

Compa Los Ranchos Lager.png
  • 5.7% ABV  
  • 20 IBU

Friends, beer drinkers, locals, this beer is for you. Brewed in the American style,
this light lager was made with two row, malted barley, melanoidin malt, and flaked corn
to emulate the big boys. We threw a few Willamette hops in there as well for balance.
Compa is simultaneously malty and easy drinking. 

Oh Gs for Website.png
  • 4.9% ABV
  • 20 IBU

The latest in our series of weird & wonderful fruity, kettle-soured beers. The standard grist made up of wheat and base malt, soured in the kettle with Lactobacillus, has been employed to lay the base for deliciously tart grapefruit and NM-grown ginger root. Our friends at Leafwater Farm provided some lovely ginger root, which we boiled into a spicy tea and added to the batch post fermentation in order to retain as much of the ginger goodness as we could. Fresh and tart with hints of pickled and candied ginger, and Saaz hops give a little herbal accent to round out this fantastic pucker fest. 

DIE DUNKEL SEITE for Website copy copy.png
  • 6.4% ABV
  • 21 IBU

A deep copper hue lets the light through this brilliantly clear lager. Our Dunkel is full of Munich malt aroma reminiscent of bread crust with a touch of Noble hop character and just a hint of chocolate to round it out. The malty, sweet palate gives way to a medium dry finish so as be satisfying without being cloying. Made with Weyerman, Pilsner, Light and Dark Munich, and Carafa ii Special malts from Germany.  German Magnum and Tettnang hops were added for balance and a classic German lager yeast fermented the batch. A tribute to the long, dark nights of the winter season. 
Prost...and see you on the dark side! 

Manana IPA for website.png
  • 7.6% ABV
  • 53 IBU

As it turns out, there’s always Mañana! Back and still loaded with tropical, juicy aroma and smooth on the palate, this New England inspired, tropical IPA was brewed for the hop heads. A simple grist with lots of oats was employed to lay the base for the irresponsible amount of Mosaic, Citra, and
El Dorado hops that we saw fit to use. Relatively low IBUs characterize the style and make for a very aromatic and smooth drinking concoction. Here’s to many happy Mañanas.

Brickie American Stout for Website.png
  • 8% ABV
  • 60 IBU

As the name would suggest this beer is sturdy.  Pouring almost black with garnet highlights and a tan head that lingers, it looks just as a stout should.  Aromas of roast and chocolate are bountiful with subtle fruitiness from our house ale strain.  Chocolate, roast, and coffee dominate the flavor with a solid malt finish to round out this solidly built stout.  Made with a collection of toasted, roasted, and crystal malts, Brickie is a brew built to stave off the winter chills and inspire holiday cheer and is equally delicious served with CO2, nitro, or out of the cask.




Ich Bin Ein Cranberry for Website.png

Cranberry Kettle Sour

  • 4% ABV
  • 5 IBU

Loosely based on the classic Berliner Weisse style, this cranberry kettle sour is tart, fruity, refreshing, and sessionable enough to have a few. A simple grist of Proximity two-row and Rahr white wheat laid the base for Lactobacillus to sour for a few days in the kettle before boiling, cooling, and fermenting with our house Kolsch yeast strain.  A copious amount of cranberry puree was added midway through fermentation, adding an extra tart kick and remarkable pink color. Prost!


Plymouth Rock and Rye Saison for Website.png
  • 6.4% ABV
  •  20 IBU

As Thanksgiving approaches, we look forward to big family gatherings and bountiful tables. Now, as we all know, beer can be a big help at family reunions. And, as we all know, there are lots of folks out there whose tables may not be so bountiful. This beer helps with both. Brewed with two types of rye, white peppercorns, and French farmhouse yeast, this Saison is full of earthy spice. A late addition of Centennial hops provides a touch of fruit to round out this keg-conditioned ale. And until Dec. 9, all proceeds from taproom sales of Rock & Rye will benefit The Storehouse. So belly-up to the bar, families & friends, to make this a bountiful holiday for all. 


Figgy Pudding for Website.png
  • 9.15% ABV
  • 20 IBU

A winter warmer that promises to take the chill off! Pours an amber color with an off-white head, and aromas of rum, figs, and spice mix with a biscuit malt backbone to bring you a taste of the season. Brewed with a generous quantity of dried figs and an even more generous amount of piloncillo sugar to ensure its fortitude. It took a little extra time to condition in the keg but the carbonation quality and mouthfeel made it worth the wait. We've brought you some figgy pudding. Don’t go until you get some.

  • 5% ABV
  • 0 IBUs

From our friends at Boxing Bear! Slightly sweet cider bursting with flavors and aromas of fresh fruit, like a bit of fresh apple. 100% gluten-free with no sulfites added.

The Judy began as a Saison brewed with lemongrass and rose hips and was fermented with a French Saison yeast. We then pressed, puréed, and otherwise manipulated fresh peaches until we could squeeze them into chardonnay barrels along with a mix of Brettanomyces cultures. After a few months of aging, she took on a new life. Effervescent, spunky & dry, with fruity peach and Brett bursting out of the glass with the help of prickly carbonation.

The Judy is a tribute to the Village of Los Ranchos. Its agriculture & its tenacious spirit. Santé!

In July of 2017, Steel Bender Brewyard's head brewer transported white-wine barrels filled with a La Cumbre Brewing Co. kettle-soured, 6-month aged peach saison to Steel Bender. He took Edith Blvd. The storied stretch of road that connects the two breweries. The road where he could drive nice & slow (we're talking 10 mph-slow). He added Brettanomyces strain (most likely sourced from Drie Fonteinen). Then aged it for another 3 months.
The historic road that brought locals together for decades made this Collaboration Brett Ale possible. Here's to you, Edith.
