Our Beers

Seize One


Wheat beer fermented with our house saison strain for a refreshing and easy drinking beer. Our saison strain was selected for its bright fruity and floral esters and subdued phenolics. Highly carbonated and very dry, this beer is just plain easy drinkin'. Uses all Colorado-sourced ingredients!

4.2% ABV • 21 IBU

Totes McOats

Oatmeal Stout

On Nitro & CO2! Chocolate and coffee flavors and aromas dominate, with a slight dark chocolate bitterness. The significant quantity of oats in this beer add an amazingly smooth and creamy texture and mouthfeel.

5.8% ABV • 21 IBU

Original Sin

American Pale Ale

Single-hopped with Australian Galaxy hops, this pale ale is crisp and sessionable. Its prominent hop aroma and flavors but low bitterness makes for a perfect, refreshing beer meant to be had on a hot summer day!

4.5% ABV • 32 IBU

Steam Steed

American IPA

Brewed with large late additions of Chinook and Cascade hops for a floral and citrus hop flavor and aroma. We dry hop with Australian Galaxy for an extra hoppy punch.

6.2% ABV • 71 IBU

About Us

Phil Joyce, Brewmaster

Our red-headed engineer-turned-brewer jumped at the opportunity to mix his technical aptitude with a little twist of creativity. After homebrewing for 4 years, earning multiple awards and accolades along the way, and volunteering with multiple breweries in Boulder, close friend Phil Joyce has joined Powder Keg as our head brewer. Phil takes inspiration from friends, family and time in the outdoors, which he'll use to keep our beer list fresh. Look for American and Belgian-style beers and a smattering of session ales designed for the work-hard-play-hard Coloradan. Whether you've just finished a 5.10 route in Boulder Canyon, completed your first century ride or designed the newest payload for launch into space, come join our extended family at Powder Keg!
