Mancos Brewing held the grand opening of its Public House and tap room in October, and in nine months has served more than 30 recipes on tap, along with several emerging as local favorites. Five of those favorites have become flagship standards and are set for bottle distribution in 22-ounce "bomber" bottles.
Three of the flagship beers are now being bottled - Dizzy Blonde Pale Ale, Pagan Porter and Mancos Gold. The same three will be featured at the Mancos Valley Summer Brewfest on Aug. 15 in Cottonwood Park in Mancos. Two other recipes - Ruff Shot Rye IPA and Mancos sh'Ale - will be released in August as well.
All available recipes can be purchased directly from the brewery. Dizzy Blonde and Pagan Porter are now available at both Mancos Liquor and Log Cabin Liquor in Mancos. Dizzy and Pagan are also available at GST Liquors in Deloras and West Slope Liquors in Cortez. Mancos Brewing Company will celebrate the release of their bottled beer with a sale during Mancos Days on July 23-25.
To celebrate this special occasion, MBC will also feature live music from local favorites Wake Up Laughing on Friday, July 24 and with The Porchlights on Saturday, July 25.
Friday will also be a special birthday celebration for guitarist extraordinaire Kevin Fraser, of Wake Up Laughing.
