We are proud to say that our beer menu is ever-changing and features a variety of our own beer, which is produced at our on-site microbrewery, as well as those of other local breweries. We usually have 10-12 different styles on tap, as well as craft cider from the likes of Uncommon, and Lone Tree, and meads from the likes of Fallen Timber.
We have the following Prairie Dog beer on tap, with many more either in planning or work-in-process. We will soon be featuring frequent releases of one-off kegs of our workshop beer, pilot batches for new recipes.
4.4% ABV, 23 IBU, 4.2 SRM
Flavourful but easy drinking, our Kölsch-style ale is clean and crisp with a slightly sweet grainy flavour and a dry finish. Based on the pilsner style, but fermented with ale yeast and lagered for several weeks, this beer has a pleasant, soft and surprisingly refreshing flavour profile that makes it stand tall beside its lager brethren.
4.8% ABV, 23 IBU, 6 SRM
This American-style wheat beer pours golden and hazy with a white, foamy head, and features prominent citrus, stone fruit, and bread aroma. The beer has a light, refreshing body with moderate carbonation and a dry but soft bread-flavoured finish and mild grainy aftertaste. An easy drinker that won’t fatigue the palate.
5.5% ABV, 24 IBU, 14 SRM
Named after the boisterous Gunnison’s Prairie Dog of the four-corners region, our red ale takes cues from the class Irish Red style, employing a hint of roasted barley for colour and taste atop a base of sweeter caramel malts with a deliberate underlying bitterness that keeps the beer palatable and adds a pleasant aftertaste, but includes a late dose of Chinook hops for a spicier, American-style finish. Our house yeast keeps the beer dry with a malty backbone, making it easy to have another.
5.9% ABV, 32 IBU, 32 SRM
Our American-style porter has been a long-standing favourite as a home-brew recipe, which we adapted to our commercial brewing system with great results. The beer features loads of dark, complex malts with notes of toasted caramel, coffee and chocolate overlaid by a pleasant spicy/herbal hop character. The beer has a full body but finishes fairly dry, making it easy to have more than one.
5.5% ABV, 30 IBU, 4 SRM
This tasty English-style pale ale is a Goldilocks beer — not too spicy and not too smoky, just right. It starts with a blend of our in-house-smoked oats and Alberta malts, and is “dry-hopped” in fermenter with a mix of smoked peppers for a complex and refreshing finish, with crackery malt underpinnings and just the right level of bitterness for balance and a pleasant warming sensation from the hot-peppers.
3% ABV, 7 IBU, 3 SRM
A modern take on German Berliner-weisse with a tart acidity and surprising level of flavour and body for such a low alcohol beer, with plenty of malty, husky grain flavour and a pale yellow colour with some haze.
5.5% ABV, 31 IBU, 16 SRM
This signature brown ale is a Prairie Dog seasonal and crowd favourite, which features a load of Alberta barley malt overlaid with a huge dose of shredded coconut that we toast in house prior to infusing into the beer.
[SOLD OUT] 5.5% ABV, 35 IBU, 30 SRM
This oatmeal stout is based on a long-standing recipe that Gerad brought with him from his home-brewing days. Not too bitter, not too sweet, this beer is perfectly balanced and stands on a complex base of character malts, including a small portion of our signature in-house-smoked oats.
[SOLD OUT] 5.1% ABV, 13 IBU, 4 SRM
Sold out! Our Gose features the flavour and aroma of freshly zested limes, diced ginger, and coriander, with subtle banana from the yeast used to ferment the beer, overlaid on a tasty malt base.
