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.

Captain Harrill’s Baltic Porter 7.5%
A traditional beer from the countries bordering the Baltic Sea, this bottom fermented Baltic porter has aromas of slight chocolate, toffee and deep toast.  Rich, malty sweetness and some dried fruit character round out the flavors.  27 ibu

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.

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

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. 

CZ Premium 5.1%
A light gold, Czech Pilsner brewed with Bohemian Pilsner malt which contributes bready maltiness.  Balanced with ample, spicy Czech Saaz hops.  28 ibu

Summer Honey Wheat  5.1%
 A light bodied, American wheat beer spiced with coriander and orange with a slight honey-malt finish.  15 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

Once You Go Bock 6.3%
A complex, dark, and malt driven lager.  Rich flavors from a variety of specialty malts, yet a clean and restrained ester profile due to a cold fermentation using a classic lager yeast.  29 ibu

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

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

 A very light bodied, refreshing ale made with barley, raw wheat, and late addition Mosaic. 18 ibu

Second Summit Double IPA {{OUT}} 7.9%
 An all malt IIPA without any sugar or adjunct fermentables used in the process.  Brewed with more caramel malt than we typically use in our hoppy beers, the extra residual sugar balances out the higher alcohol and bitterness. 80 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.
