BREWS
Bypass Belgian Wit
brewed in honor of the late piere celis, the former milkman who reintroduced this style to the world, this refreshing belgian white ale has a complex body and pleasing finish. generous amounts of bavarian wheat are combined with 2-row brewers malt. hopped with willamette and cascade, the palate of this belgian beauty comes from bitter and sweet orange peel, fresh crushed coriander and a special belgian yeast strain. 4.8% abv / 16 ibu
Powder Monkey Pilsner
named for the dam workers who packed all the explosives, this beer is flavorful and refreshing, yet not filling. pilsen and carapils malt give this brew a light, malty character and straw color. the palate is balanced with three hops northern brewer and tettnanger from germany and styrian goldings from slovenia. 4.7% abv / 41 ibu
Hells Hole Hefeweizen
we figured the workers living in williamsville, also known as hells hole, would have appreciated a few of these refreshing brews. a true bavarian hefeweizen, this thirst-quenching wheat beer is made with 2-row brewers malt and heaps of bavarian wheat. hopped with three german varieties: herschbrucker hallertauer, spalt and perle. the hints of banana and clove come from the special bavarian yeast strain we use. 4.8% abv / 16 ibu
High Scaler Ipa
our boldest dam brew is named for the boldest dam workers. dangling from ropes 700 feet above the canyon floor, they blasted off the face of the cliff and then pried away loose rock. our version of this classic style uses loads of 2-row brewers, white wheat and carapils malt. seriously hopped up with german hallertau, domestic chinook and cascade, we throw an additional two pounds of fresh cascade directly into the fermenter. are you as tough as a high scaler? 6.5% abv / 32 ibu
Black Canyon Stout
named after the canyon in which the dam is built, this rich, dark beer is made with four varieties of malt. minnesota two-row brewers, english chocolate, black malt and roasted barley give a pleasant coffee-like character to the finish. this ruby-black brew is perfectly balanced with east kent goldings and liberty hops
Boulder Bean Espresso Stout
this rich, dark beer is made with four varieties of malt - 2-row brewers, munich, caramel and black malt. this ruby-black brew is perfectly balanced with english east kent goldings and german target hops. the deep coffee flavor comes from the dark roasted malts and 500 freshly-brewed shots of espresso from boulder citys own boulder bean coffee house. 5% abv / 49 ibu
Guest Tap
hey! the bru guru likes other beers, too. ask your server what beer weve selected from another quality craft brewery
Shandy
a classic british pub offering. our shandy is half powder monkey pilsner and half refreshing lemonade. sounds weird? we know. trust us (or at least the british) on this one
Rattlesnake Bite
a popular no-no in british pubs - half brisk powder monkey pilsner, half dry, hard cider. dam good!
Irish Rattler
rattlesnakes in ireland? well, no. but the legend says snakes destroyed much of the apple harvest one year, so folks mixed their cider with stout to help extend their cider rations. tart and malty, this concoction is a delicious blend of hard cider and boulder bean espresso stout
About
Located in the heart of the historic Old Town district, Boulder Dam Brewing Co. is Boulder City's first and only brewpub. Located across the street from the Boulder Dam Hotel, the brewery is less than five miles from Lake Mead and less than eight from Hoover Dam. Practically a museum in itself, the brewery features decor and fixtures from the 1930's, silent films made during the construction of the dam, actual pieces of equipment used during the construction and a myriad of art depicting Boulder City's beginnings and brewing from the period. A destination for locals and visitors alike, Boulder Dam Brewing serves up six original pub-brewed beers at a time. The 40-barrel system allows the flexibility

September is beautiful! Good timing. We do have vegan items on the menu, but please ask our chef to make something special if we don't have quite what you're looking for. Hope to see you then! Cheers, Todd Cook Bru Guru
