A light-colored ale that boasts aromas of orange and pine with ripe peach and apricot atop toasted sugar and bread crust.


COMPA for Website.png
  • 5.7% ABV

  • 20 IBU

Friends, beer drinkers, New Mexicans, 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. So kick back, grab a burger, and enjoy.


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. 

 


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.


Raspberry Dynamite for Website.png
  • 5.8% ABV

  • 5 IBU

IT'S BACK! This popular kettle sour 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!


Lloyds 3 O'Clock Kolsch for Website.png
  • 5% ABV

  • 25 IBU

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. 


STOUT for Website.png
  • 6% ABV

  • 40 IBU

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

This twist on a classic style combines soft wheat notes with orange, coriander, and a spicy yeast character. Bursting with flavor and prickly carbonation, The Village Wit finishes appropriately dry. 

Hole in the Bucket for Website.png
  • 7.7% ABV

  • 80 IBU

Brewed for the National IPA Challenge, Hole In The Bucket is a special version of our Skull Bucket IPA. We changed up the hop bill a bit to include Idaho 7, Styrian Wolf, and Strata to complement the Dr Rudi, Centennial, and Chinook that lay the base for this house favorite. With boosted aromas of the orange and pine along with some fruiter notes, we think this turbo version will tickle the fancy of all the hopheads out there. Let us know how it stacks up to the Skull Bucket!


Manana IPA for website.png
  • 7.36% ABV

  • 50 IBU

Good Guava, man! We couldn’t help but tinker with this iteration of Mañana and the results are downright tasty. This New England style pours a hazy straw color with an off-white head. An initial aroma of grapefruit gives way to guava and ripe mango coming from the irresponsible additions of Styrian Wolf, Styrian Dragon, Cashmere, and Strata hops. The flavor showcases the aromas with a lingering citrus pith finish. We brewed a limited quantity for the National IPA Challenge, so get Mañana today while the getting is good!


The George Porter for Website.png
  • 6.1% ABV

  • 52 IBU

Well, Looky Py Py. This porter was inspired by one of the legends of the New Orleans music scene.  George Porter Jr. has carried the groove for The Meters since 1965 and has inspired musicians and this brewer to keep it funky for all those years. This beer pours a deep mahogany with aromas of chocolate and roast that carry through into the flavor. A medium body and crisp finish differentiate this Porter from its sweeter, stouter cousins. Keep your eyes out for a funkier, barreled version in the coming months
but strut on in and enjoy some now!   

  


Village Innuendo for Website.png
  • 5.5% ABV

  • 12 IBU

Pie cherries abound in the aroma of this fruit forward Wit. A hazy, peach colored brew with rose highlights, The Village Innuendo is a light bodied thirst quencher brewed with traditional Wit spices and lots and lots of tart cherry puree.  Flavors of cherry, orange, and coriander sit atop a soft, wheat backbone. Medium high carbonation and a medium-dry finish invites the next sip of this early Spring offering.



ETTU Brut IPA for Website.png
  • 6.9% ABV

  • 20 IBU

This one is as dry as dry can be...stabbier than ever! Fermented out completely, there is nothing to get in the way of the Azacca, Jarrylo, and Idaho 7 hops. With aromas of melon, grapefruit pith, passionfruit, and tangerine, ETTU is brimming with fruity goodness. We took a stab at getting as many tiny bubbles as we could into every glass to bring you a sparklingly good brew. 



SBB Cider 5 for Website.png
  • 6% ABV

The fifth iteration of our Steel Bender Cider showcases apples from Manzano Mountain Apple Ranch.  The base fermentation consisted of Apple and Pear concentrates, which fermented to fully dry.  We then arrested the yeast activity and added fresh, house-pressed juice from a variety of apples grown at Monzano Mountain Apple Ranch. We let this condition for a good while, and the resultant cider is semi-dry and full of apple character that could only come from fresh pressed apples.

Seasoned. Distinctive. Chock-full of grit with a dose of zestand strong will, every village should have its village wit. Our twist on this classic style combines soft wheat notes with orange, coriander, and a spicy yeast character. Bursting with flavor and prickly carbonation, The Village Wit finishes charmingly dry.

  • 7.4% ABV

  • 80 IBU

Forget the kitchen sink, we threw the whole shoe at this one! We started with our house Belgian yeast strain to achieve those fruity esters and spicy phenols that play so wellwith the Citra and Tettnang hop base.

Then we threw some more in the fermente. . . 2018 harvest Cascade and Chinook hops from Billy Goat Hop Farm in Montrose, Colorado (and more Citra and Tettnang while we were at it). The result? A Belgo IPA pouring a hazy yellow and packed with aromas of grapefruit, lemon, pepper, cut grass, and bubblegum.

  • 6.25% ABV

  • 30 IBU

Packed with potential . . .

Barley and wheat malts. Azacca, El Dorado, Elle, and Meridian hops. PERSEVERANCE. And Brettanomyces. Cinderella Story is about squaring up to a challenge, keeping the prize in sight, and shrugging off the impossible. It’s a testament to never giving up. Enjoy Cindy’s hop character now, and then put some away to check in on the Brett evolution. Whatever you tackle, do it with gusto.

This bracingly tart take on a Flanders Style Sour has taken some time to bring about. A year in barrels with Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus, and Pediococcus brought about plenty of pucker with a long stay in bottles resulting in a fruity, farmyard funk to balance the acidity. One complex beer that was worth the wait.

For fun, we added pure boysenberry puree to some of the barrels of Ned’s Sour Pail. The result  is a fruitier, vinous version of Ned’s Sour.

Meet VIEJO AGRIO, our first mixed-culture sour beer. Brewed with Pilsner, Aromatic, Wheat, and Special B malts, and touched with French Aramis hops, this beer spent just over a year in brandy barrels with the full treasure trove of bugs. Various Brettanomyces, Lactobacillus, and Pediococcus cultures all got a turn in the extended barrel aging before being bottled with priming sugar and wine yeast. A wealth of funk and brandy aroma mix beautifully with the bracingly tart flavor, giving way to a lingering oak and tannin barrel character on the palate. Discovering Viejo Agrio’s transformations during its journey has been half the fun! Let’s see where it takes us for years to come. . .

In the grey existence that was city life during the Industrial Revolution, a light and quaffable beer emerged, its purpose to quench the thirst of hard-working factory works and served by hard-working women dressed in grey. The Grisette was born. This Grisette comes to you thanks to Amarillo and Perle hops, two-row, wheat, and acidulated malts, and raw wheat berries. Produced by our house Belgian strain and conditioned in the bottle for the tiniest of bubbles.
