Manitou Common  {OUT} 5.5%
This crisp amber lager is an example of the style called California Common. California Common is one of the oldest American beer styles. Although the west coast may claim the genesis of this style, we adapted the ingredients to suit the local palate. Our Regulars asked for a clean, crisp beer balanced with a subtle caramel malt character. This beer is for the locals. This beer is Manitou Common. 30

Jibberish Rye Pale Ale 6.6%
This refreshing rye pale ale will warm your body with a subtle rye spiciness & caramel malt charm, you won’t stop with just one. Everybody gets a Jibberish, cheers! 47

Gourd Hoarder’s Pumpkin Ale 6.6%
Each sip starts with a blend of spicing that immediately leads into a light noble hop bitterness, finishing with a delicate pumpkin/malt finish.  26

Burro Barn Brown 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

High Ground IPA 6.5%
2016 WORLD BEER CUP SILVER MEDAL. After multiple experimental batches of IPA & feedback from our fans, we bring you High Ground IPA. 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. ??

Harvest Wet Hop Red  5.7%
 A Red Ale kettle hopped with an abundance of fresh harvest wet hop Cascade and Centennial.  Fresh “green” hop flavor and moderate bitterness. 65

Manitou Genuine Draft  5.5%
A beer style spawned from the American lager movement in the mid to late 1800’s, Cream Ale is a very crisp, refreshing lager-esque ale or ale-esque lager (depending on yeast used.)  Very faint malt notes, very light-bodied, very high carbonation, with low to moderate hopping make this beer very crisp, very clean, very refreshing, and very drinkable! 17

Wit It or Quit It {OUT} 5%
Traditional Belgian Wit, “white beer” brewed with wheat, oats & coriander, drinking deceptively smooth we dare you to quit after just one! 12

Holy Hour Irish Red Ale {OUT} 4.9%
An homage to the pre-2000 Irish law that stated an Irish pub had to close between the hours of 2-4 every Sunday afternoon.  Ironicially, if you were in the pub prior to 2, you could stay & drink. Holy Hour is a traditional Irish Red balanced between small hints of caramel from the Crystal malts & the subtle biscuity, roasted dryness of the small addition of roasted barley. The low hop bitterness & low ABV make this Irish Red very sessionable.  Sláinte 27

Burnout IPA   {OUT} 7.1%
 Out of juicy hops and going way back. You might think old school hops are old hat. And once it’s gone, you just might think back. When you’re out of juicy hops, dump a beer, and get off track. It’s better to burn out than to fade away. 75

Cerise Mousseux Nouveau  {OUT} 7.9%
2016 WORLD BEER CUP SILVER MEDAL. The vision for this beer was to create something that tastes very close to a semi-sweet to off-dry sparkling wine using 100% malt.  Using a combination of both brewing and wine making techniques, the pH was lowered with wild lactobacillus and fermented with wine yeast.  Finished beer was stabilized and back sweetened with cherries.   Loosely translated to “new sparkling cherry”. 9

New Belgium Glütiny Golden Ale 5.2%
New Belgium dosed Glütiny Golden Ale with Nugget, Goldings and Cascade hops, and then dry-hopped it again with Cascade. These bright, floral hops lend grapefruit and subtle herb notes to the wash of bready-sweet malts. An addition of oats adds a layer of smoothness to the mouthfeel. Glütiny Golden Ale is a sessionable, flavorful ale that starts sweet and ends crisp. {BOTTLE ONLY; GLUTEN REMOVED, DOES NOT = GLUTEN FREE} 20

New Belgium Glütiny Pale Ale 6%
Glütiny Pale Ale has a hefty dose of exotic Equinox hops, which bring out guava, papaya and stone fruits lending to a sweet, slightly toasty malt flavor. Additional hops include chinook, cascade and crystal. The beer starts with a light sweetness that slides into a balanced bitterness. The mouthfeel is juicy with a crisp finish. {BOTTLE ONLY; GLUTEN REMOVED, DOES NOT = GLUTEN FREE} 30



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

10 Span Cabernet Sauvignon
Big peppery nose, transitions to a medium bodied red that’s light on the tongue, fruity, spicy & fairly well balanced


10 Span Chardonnay
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.

Belle Ambiance Pinot Grigio
Medium bodied, crisp and bright, with a tangy and lingering finish

Mionetto Moscato Dolce
Fresh & crisp sparkling wine with flavors of peach & honey
