Few things are as uniquely New Mexico as our world-class IPAs. Bosque IPA starts with a light copper base of pale, caramel, and wheat malts, providing a medium-bodied backbone for our flagship IPA. But that’s just setting the stage for the hops, where myriad aromatics and flavors are coaxed out of a blend of our favorite hop varieties.
INDIA PALE ALE
6.5% Alc./Vol. | 90 IBU | 12 fl. oz.
Inspired by German pilsners, Bosque Lager quenches thirsty palates without sacrificing depth and character. Where this straw-colored, crisp, and brilliant lager deviates from tradition is in a noble dry-hop for a bright and floral aroma.

ELEPHANTS ON PARADE

WHEAT ALE WITH FRUIT
5.5% ABV | 12 IBU | 12 fl. oz.

PISTOL PETE’S 1888 ALE

Whether you’re new to craft beer or a seasoned connoisseur, this beer is sure to quench your thirst.

Summer in Hallertau
What do you do with a glut of noble hops? Recklessly pack them in, five pounds per barrel at a time, into a light pale ale! Summer in Hallertau is a noble hop experience like no other beer you’ve had. A medium-light body brew with a slight bread character hides in the background, while German Hallertau and Czech Saaz hops are front and center. It’s grassy, slightly woody, and surprisingly fruity with hints of orange and tangerine.
5.5 ABV | 20 IBUs

BEYOND THE TREES
The world of ciders delves into adjuncts, dry hopping, and more but we thought our first splash in this style should be a classic. This no-frills apple cider lives up to our line of staple and specialty beers, but stands out on its own. The Bosque Cider is crisp, clean, and dry with a hint of apple sweetness, making it a palate pleaser all year.
This American Pilsner is Bosque’s riff on the classic style. With a medium body and creamy mouthfeel, it is malt-forward highlighting notes of biscuit with a very subtle sweetness up front with a dry, crisp finish. Medium hop bitterness lingers on the back end of each sip, bringing you back for another drink each time.
5% ABV | 20 IBUs
So you want something different out of a lager? Allryety Then! This rye lager has notes of peppercorns and dried spices from the nose to the back of the palate. Spicy rye malt flavors are balanced with Pilsner and Vienna malts while the duo of Tettnanger and Herkules hops bring and bitter, peppery finish with very light floral notes.
5.2% ABV | 30 IBUs
Our brewery in Bernalillo is known for two things: Outstanding beers and the U-Turn on 550. This hazy IPA swirls with ripe fruit notes on the nose, but takes a U-turn on the back end of your palate with assertive hop bitterness and hints of pine needles.
7.2% ABV | 70 IBUs
New Leaf has fresh and tart notes of strawberry that are highlighted with the refreshing crispness of cucumber. This hard seltzer is crisp, clean, and refreshingly effervescent down to the last sip. It’s great on ice, but is equally crushable on its own.
The Last straw
You’ll get freshly peeled banana aromas up front on this traditional Hefeweizen. However, your palate is met with clove and baking spices on the front end of your palate with a little bit of orange peel on the back end. It’s a shining example of the style to help transition into the late days of summer.
5.8% ABV | 8 IBUs
Perhaps it sounds a bit quirky, but there isn't a summer pairing quite like watermelon with a touch of salt, so our brewery team took that idea and made a beer out of it. It has a nice aroma of fresh cut melon, while your first sip has a brighter, slightly tart note like when you're savoring those crisp last bites of watermelon as you get down to the rind. A hint of Himalayan sea salt gets your palate craving the next sip to come.
5.5% ABV | 10 IBUs
