Sierra Blanca Brewing

Sierra Blanca Brewing With a background in electrical/mechanical engineering and job experience designing airplane power systems, Rich Weber, owner of the brewery, may seem ill-suited for the job of combining barley and hops to come up with a savory beer. In fact, few skills would serve him better. Ironically, this delicate business of steeping and fermenting is intensely mechanical. The Weber’s had the foresight to hire a top brewer and a chemical engineer to come in and coach Rich for two years on his own machinery. “The professional help was invaluable”, said Weber. “They taught me every aspect of brewing from the water analysis to the bottling”. Tenacity, strict adherence to the processes and formulas for making his beer, and commitment to keep his brew pure and never, ever cut corners, have added up to a recipe for success for this engineer turned micorbrewer. In September of 2006, Sierra Blanca Brewing Company expanded its operation and relocated to Moriarty, New Mexico. Rich recalls, “Our long-term business plan called for moving into a larger facility 10 years after start-up, so we’re on track with those projections”.

  Alien Amber Ale
We have blended eight different types of barley to create this amber ale. It appeals to the largest segment of craft beer drinkers who enjoy a smooth, malty ale with no hop bitterness.
  Desert Pils
This traditional Pilsner is sharp up front with a crisp finish that keeps you coming back for more. The ultimate session beer!
A complex, layered hop mixture makes this a well rounded IPA with strong grapefruit and pine flavors with a hint of pepper. This beer has great head retention and strong hop aroma.
  Nut Brown
This Nut Brown is brewed with English Ale yeast. In English tradition, we use only English Fuggle hops, which are low in bitterness and produce a mild floral hop taste. The complexity of this Nut Brown is created mainly by the Chocolate and Dark Chocolate malted barley. There is a roasted coffee flavor with hints of chocolate and nutty or nutmeg finish on the back of the tongue. This Nut Brown has the widest spectrum of flavors of any Nut Brown on the market.
  Outlaw Lager
This unique lager balances a rich caramel malt flavor with a smooth hop finish that keeps the palate crisp. Reddish-amber in color, this is a very complex California Common style beer with a great malt/hop balance.
  Pale Ale
This is a true American Pale Ale; well balanced malt to hop flavor. There is a slight caramel flavor up front derived from German Munich malts, followed by a citrus/grapefruit flavor derived from Cascade hops with a peppery flavor bite on the back of the throat.
  Pancho Verde Chili Cerveza
This beer has an unmistakable roasted chili aroma and flavor without being too hot. The whole chili is used to infuse the beer with a mild green chili flavor and leaves you with just a hint of heat on the back end.
A German style pilsner with German yeast, German Noble Hops and 10 percent Durst Pilsner Malt. This lager is fermented at 55 degrees for one week and lagered (German for stored) for at least two more weeks. The sharp hop bite up front is intended to keep the palette clean; giving the beer high drink ability. There is no after taste, the finish turns right off. This is the perfect session beer.
