Brewed with 2-Row Pale and 5 Specialty malts, it's malty in both flavor and smell. A heap of Cascade and Willamette add balance to this easy drinking ale. Hole up, have a few, and tell us what you think. We’re bettin’ it’s the best Brown Ale you’ll ever have.

I first had this beer fresh in the Good People taproom and it was delicious. It has a nutty, almost pecan flavor, and seems like it would go great with some good southern cooking. The color was a nice amber/brown color with a thick head. Very refreshing beer!

This is a local beer for me and, overall, is an outstanding brown ale. I've tasted many brown ales to compare, but this one beats them all in my opinion. The aroma is nutty with a decent tan head. A very nice malt flavor and the hops stay well hidden. This is my go-to brown ale.
