OPEN SPACE HAZE

6.2% ABV | 70 IBU

From specialty series to stand alone seasonal, Open Space Haze has arrived! This full flavored, New England-style IPA has a similar hop profile to Open Space 120 West. It’s tropical, pillowy soft, and bursting with ripe fruit aromatics

DRIFTWOOD OATMEAL STOUT

5.9% ABV  |  20 IBU

Nearly black with ruby highlights, Driftwood’s coffee, chocolate, and roasty tones enhance the rich, malt character. This well-balanced, full-bodied ale is, most importantly, a pleasure to drink!

Bosque Cider

5.3% ABV

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.

Take on Mead

5.4% ABV

Our Take on Mead is easy drinking with medium candy sweetness. Local New Mexico honey notes swirl with floral notes of pleasant cherry blossom, delicate rose petal, and honeysuckle. This mead is sparkling, not still, making it a great taste of spring time in New Mexico.

Brewer’s Bruises

6.2% ABV | 15 IBUs

The Bosque Co-Op series returns in 2019 with Brewer’s Bruises. Inspired by Nicole from our San Mateo location, this gose will catch your eye with its deep ruby color. It’s loaded with blueberries complemented by calming lavender and a bit of Himalayan salt. It drinks like a glass of dry sparkling rose with a slightly tannic finish. The tartness of blueberries is front and center, while lavender flowers give it floral aromatics that calm the brightness on your palate.

Belgo

5.7% ABV | 80 IBUs

The farmhouse yeast used in this American-Belgo Pale Ale imparts a fruity flavor (think bananas) with a little bit of spice. A trio of Mosaic, Ekuanot, and Pacific Jade hops introduces citrus and tropical notes with a slightly piney and floral nose. The malt bill lends itself to hints of biscuit and caramel, making it a full-flavored beer with a complex yet approachable character.

New Leaf

5% ABV

We’re not exactly turning over a new leaf, just adding one to the ever-growing tree that is Bosque. Today, we introduce the New Leaf hard seltzer. Though we have a great following of beer drinkers, we want to include every imbiber in the Bosque Brewing Co. experience. This hard seltzer was carefully crafted by John Bullard and our brewery team in Bernalillo. It’s derived from fermented cane sugar and kissed with watermelon extract, making a crisp, clean, and incredibly refreshing low-carb, low-sugar libation.

Bossy

7.4% ABV | 60 IBUs

The fourth annual Pink Boots Society brew day went down on International Women’s Day. Leading women from Santa Fe Brewing Company, Sidetrack Brewing, Steel Bender Brewyard, Tractor Brewing Company, Canteen Brewhouse, and Red Door Brewing Company joined us at Bosque North to make a collaboration beer, with the recipe built by Bosque’s labtech, Mercedes Donio.

The hazy guava IPA, aptly named Bossy, is a strong and approachable ale. Assertive hop presence from the Pink Boots Blend of Pacific Northwest hop varieties is met with the ripe sweetness of guava puree. The nose has notes of pear and grapefruit, while your palate is hit up front with hop bitterness and citrus pith, finishing with a juicy tropical mouthfeel.
