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.

Manitou Lager    5%
A clean, light, and refreshing Helles style lager biased more towards malt than hops. Soft bready notes with a clean finish.     
Garden of the Guavas Blonde
Thinking of sandy beaches and palm trees?  This light bodied and refreshing blonde ale is infused with copious amounts of pink guava, giving hints of melon, papaya and grapefruit. Suns Up!    
Peachy Dreams   5%
We start with an American Blonde base, next up add peach purée during secondary fermentation, resulting in a light, supremely drinkable beer, with a ton of peachy goodness & featuring prominent vanilla aroma & flavor.    
Westside Wheat
A light bodied, American wheat beer spiced with coriander and orange with a slight honey-malt finish.    

Rant Mode Mosaic Wheat
“Hoppy” does not mean “bitter.”  These two words are not synonymous.  Hop bursted and dry hopped with crazy amounts of Mosaic, this beer screams juicy hops with little bitterness.    

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.    
Apricity Spiced Ale   6.1%
A biscuity, semi-sweet ale subtly spiced to bring the flavors of winter to your mouth. We guarantee it’ll warm you up & if the cold brings beers like this, we’ll take it!     

Vier Katzen Doppelbock
A big, malty German lager first brewed by monks in Munich during lent. These monks would fast for 46 days during lent, only consuming Doppelbock (nicknamed liquid bread) and water. Having a few Doppelbocks during Lent is a must for any beer fan.    

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.    
Dry Irish Nitro Stout  {{CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE}}   4.7%
 Light bodied Irish Stout with subtle roast finish. A refreshing, thirst quenching beer contrary to its appearance.    
Coffee Milk Stout   5.2%
A thick, chewy milk stout infused with fresh roasted coffee.  Warning: contains lactose (milk sugar)    
Night Bird Robust Porter
An American Robust Porter with a plethora of roasty malts. Starts with assertive dark roast which dissipates into medium sweet caramel with a robust yet smooth finish.    

Patio Pounder Pale Ale   6.6%
A hazy 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.    

Barr Trail Pale Ale   5.5%
This is a tasty tribute to Pikes Peak Barr Trail. Parts much traveled, summit less conquered. Perfect balance of malt and juicy tropical hop aroma and flavor. Take a quick trip on Barr Trail.    

Kelly RIPA   6.3%
A Rye IPA. Heaps of rye in this grain bill create a spicy, dry malt backbone paired with citrus & pine hops.    

Strawberry Milkshake IPA
Milky IPA brewed with lactose & strawberries.    
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.

Beringer Founder’s Estate Red Blend
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. The mouth is rich and dense, with layers of freshly roasted coffee, chocolate covered cherries, a solid oak structure lending clove, nutmeg, and cinnamon, and a bright, juicy acid just ready for food.

Lindeman’s Chardonnay Bin 65
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.

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

Six Hats Sauvignon Blanc
Crisp and lively, elegant balance between the tropical fruits and the minerality.
