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.

Cerise Mousseux Nouveau
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 and secondary fermented with cherries.   Is it beer or is it wine?  We’ll let you decide. 7 ibu

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

Dante Cabernet Sauvignon
Dante Cabernet Sauvignon is bright with enticing aromas of cranberry, red plum, bright red cherries, and milk chocolate.

Pinot Grigio with a fragrant flowery bouquet and full of pear and apricot fruit flavors, ideally balanced for a refreshing experience.
