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.    

Hazy Dayz IPA   6%
We took our Lazy Dayz IPA and made it hazy. Bursting with tropical aromas and flavors, we have joined the hazy revolution. Nothing better than Hazy Dayz in Manitou!    

A-Frame Amber  Ale   5.2%
Three miles from the summit of Pikes Peak on the Barr Trail, you’ll find the AFrame 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

Passion of the Blonde
  5%
What do you get when you take a saucy & brisk blonde ale & load up with over 100lbs of passion fruit? Well, that’s something you’re just going to have to experience yourself!    25 ibu

Granada Agridulce
  5%
An ale kettle soured with pediococcus, fermented with our house yeast and conditioned with loads of pomegranate fruit. A nice balance of sweet, tart pomegranate fruit and fresh, tangy acidity.    10 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

Billy Goat Brut IPA
  6.3%
Keeping it local, our Billy Goat Brut IPA is a very dry, crisp, low IBU ale brewed and dry hopped with Cascade and Chinook hops from our friends at Billy Goat Hop Farm in Montrose, Colorado. Since dryness increases the perception of bitterness, we kept the IBU’s on the low side by adding almost 7lbs of hops during the whirlpool only, then dry hopped with another 20 lbs. Floral, pine, spice, and citrus reminiscent of grapefruit fill the senses as the dryness and crispness leave the palate refreshed. #supportlocal #billygoatsrule   31 ibu

Westside Wheat
  5.6%
A light bodied, American wheat beer spiced with coriander and orange with a slight honey-malt finish.     15 ibu

Muscoco Mojito Cream Ale
  5%
A sparkling, dry cream ale with a hint of mint and lime on the nose.    18 ibu

Morning Bird Blonde Ale   6%
A light, slightly biscuity sweet blonde ale with floral and herbal notes coming from the addition of Slovenia Celia hops. Perfect for the patio!    21 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

Creek Walk Dark Wheat   5.9%
A dark wheat ale with a hint of ginger.   22 ibu


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

Drifter in the Dark   6.4%
Dark sweet cherry Saison, we took the traditional Saison and put a Manitou twist on it. The addition of Belgian Special B malt, small amounts of chocolate malt, and over 100lbs of sweet cherries, gives this beer its dark, ruby color.  Low bitterness, slight sweet cherry tartness, and a warming alcohol presence give balance and appeal.    22 ibu

Barr Trail Pale Ale {{{UPCOMING}}}   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.    

Patio Pounder Pale Ale   6.6%
An American Pale Ale loaded with Azacca, Cascade, and Idaho 7 hops giving this beer a mountain of tropical notes reminiscent of mango, papaya, pineapple & citrus.   41 ibu
