We are a small 5 bbl brewpub located in historic Manitou Springs.  Sitting at the base of Pikes Peak, we are the closest brewery to its splendor.  All of our beer is born from the pristine waters located near the top of the peak. 

Our cellar, pub, and brewery reside in what was formerly the Manitou Burro Line in the late 1800’s.  Visitors would come to this very spot to rent a burro and ride to the top of Pikes Peak.

Our beer is meticulously crafted, at every step, with the finest ingredients available.  We look forward to serving you soon!

Come sample one of our artisanally crafted beers.

MBC offers a wide variety of beer styles brewed on location and also craft beer from our favorite breweries around the world. While we offer a few flagship brews year round, our tap selection generally varies from week to week, and of course season to season. 

A new wood cellar addition in early 2018 should start yielding barrel aged varieties later in the year.

High Ground IPA 6.9%
This beer is meticulously crafted with care in EVERY step of the process. Hop bursted and dry hopped with over 5 lbs of hops per barrel, this beer has a calculated IBU rating of 125. Actual IBU’s unknown.

Cerise Mousseux Nouveau 8.7%
2016 World Beer Cup Silver Medal winner in the Experimental category.  The vision was to create a beer reminiscent of a sparkling wine.  It was made using 100% malt fermentables.  The pH was lowered to bring it down to the range of sparkling wine using a lactic acid bacteria blend that creates a clean, fruity lactic acid profile.  It is then fermented with wine yeast, rested on French oak, and secondary fermented with cherries.   Is it beer or is it wine?  We’ll let you decide.  6 ibu

Raspberry Grisette 4.8%
 A low ABV, yet flavorful saison/farmhouse-esque beer, a style first brewed to quench the thirst of Belgian miners.  This beer is primary fermented extremely dry and then secondary fermented with a ton of raspberries.  35 ibu

Dry Irish Nitro Stout  4.7%
 Light bodied Irish Stout with subtle roast finish. A refreshing, thirst quenching beer contrary to its appearance.  24 ibu

Honey Wheat
A light bodied, American wheat beer spiced with coriander and orange with a slight honey-malt finish.   15 ibu

Blue Skies IPA
When Oregon and New England IPA meet in the middle, you get the blue skies of Colorado.  Slightly hazy but very dry, this beer is hop bursted and dry hopped with an insane amount of juicy hops.  This is as close to a NEIPA as we’ll get…Because they just look gross.  

Saison 6.5%
A very dry and effervescent Saison with a floral and fruity yeast profile..  28 ibu

Burro Barn Brown Ale 5.5%
Our brewery resides in what was formerly the burro barn for the Manitou Burro Line in the late 1800’s. Visitors to Manitou Springs would come to this very spot to rent a burro which was then used to summit Pikes Peak.  This American Brown Ale is a subtle blend of chocolate & caramel-toffee flavors, moderately bittered to balance the sweetness of this medium to full bodied ale. 38 ibu

Gourd Hoarder’s Pumpkin Ale 5.2%
Each sip starts with a blend of spicing that immediately leads into a light noble hop bitterness, finishing with a delicate pumpkin/malt finish.

Little Wit Crazy 5.2%
Traditional Belgian Wit, “white beer” brewed with wheat, oats & coriander, drinking deceptively smooth we dare you to quit after just one! 12 ibu

Novella White IPA 6.2%
A combination of a Belgian Wit and an American IPA.  A boosted Wit grain bill fermented with Belgian Wit yeast.  American hops used in the kettle and dry hop.

A-Frame Amber Ale 5.1%
Three miles from the summit of Pikes Peak on the Barr Trail, you’ll find the A-Frame shelter. This beer is like that, kick back, relax, enjoy the view & sip some hints of caramel plus biscuit maltiness before hitting something harder.  35 ibu

Barr Trail Pale Ale 5.5%
 This is a tasty tribute to Pikes Peak Barr Trail. Parts much traveled, summit less conquered. Understated hop flavors, switchbacking
between citrus & pine notes. Take a quick trip on Barr Trail.
 38 ibu

Dream Eater Black IPA 6.7%
This black IPA was brewed with copious amounts of Citra and Mosaic, then dry hopped with Cascade and Amarillo. Pine, citrus and tropical aromas and flavors blend with dark malts, caramel and a little rye spice to give this dream eater a balanced and dry finish.

Rant Mode Mosaic Wheat 6%
“Hoppy” does not mean “bitter.”  These two words are not synonymous.  Hop bursted and dry hopped with crazy amounts of Mosaic, this beer screams juicy hops with little bitterness. 15 ibu

Bière de Garde 5.6%
 French style farmhouse ale, with malt accented character & a hint of yeast sweetness.. 23 ibu

UPDATED Oct 14, 2018

Flavorful California cuvee of Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Shiraz, Merlot & Petite Sirah

Lindeman’s Cabernet Bin 45
Medium to full bodied, exudes plum & berry flavors, with a hint of dryness

Lindeman’s Chardonnay Bin 65
On the nose, bright citrus aromas are accented by fresh meringue with a hint of vanilla. On the palate, enjoy the essence of Sierra Madre’s unique fruit — rich, mouth-filling flavors of crisp citrus with a delicate, balanced pear finish.

Naked Grape Pinot Grigio
Crisp, dry with aromas of lemon & pear

Chateau Guillebot Bordeaux Blanc
Bold & well balanced, hints of citrus, lemon rind & pear
