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.
