B.D.G. (Brunch. Dinner. Grub.) Country Ale: Matching the right beer to the right food is a wonderful assignment. The contemplation of point and counter-point can often be as much fun as the reward of good pairing. Sadly, in a life well lived there is not always time to contemplate what dinner will be, let alone what beverage will play best with it. Here we have selected malts to evoke the crusty breads that sit well next to every meal and seasoned it with the lemony, tarragon/thyme notes of Aramis hops. A go-to, food friendly ale for the table. Drink B.D.G because you are what you eat... and drink.

At the brewery, which is about as happy an experience as a craft drinker will get. Go there.
This brown ale is as sweet and happy an experience as you will find in a brown ale .
Better than Avery, Smutty Nose or others. Must try.
A: Pours a sweet color with a lasting and lacing head.
S: Like all Carton brews, it's ample, sporting malt back bone and caramel sweetness with balancing bitterness
T: Follows the smell. Bravo, and still keeps coming with flavor: minerally, long finish, fresh.
MF: creamy and luxurious.

Growler filled at the Green Growler grocery Croton-on-Hudson, NY

They called it a "Bierre De Garde" hmmm

Heavily hazed medium brownish, nice looking super fine fields of lace.

Herbal nose, then nutty, malty and smooth with a rear woody, muted herbal spice note on the palate, nicely done.

Would likely work for Thanksgiving with the meal or with any fall activity/chow

Caramel color with soapy lacing and some foam retention. Malt smells like English toffee. Tastes a little watery but has a rich finish.

As advertised, this is a solid brown ale that would go with just about anything.
