Thunder Canyon Brewstillery Launches Expanded Cocktail Program & Winter Menu

The "Brewstillery" has pushed the "stillery" part of the name harder with an expanded menu of cocktails.

‘Tis the season for some cocktails, fa la la la la, la la la, drink.

Downtown’s Thunder Canyon Brewstillery has pushed the “stillery” part of the name harder with an expanded menu of cocktails.

The cocktail menu features 24 different libations now; most of them feature Thunder Canyon’s own spirits, while about a quarter of them feature spirits from their neighbor Independent Distillery.

Thunder Canyon Brewstillery Cocktail Menu Highlights

  • Coco Mojo ($8) – Trogon coconut rum mojito, Fernet Branca Menta float
  • Sabroso Guey ($12) – reposado tequila, French Amer, sweet vermouth, fresh lime
  • La Rosa ($8) – a mezcal take on the classic Paloma

  • Lil’ Boozy ($8) – Independent Distillery gin, dry curacao, and fresh sour, topped with Thunder Canyon Sunrise Wheat beer and barrel-aged bitters

The food side of the menu received several new items as well. Dishes are still all made in-house with a focus on local ingredients and incorporating Thunder Canyon’s beer whenever appropriate.
