Rugged Trail Nut Brown Ale is back on tap in our Tasting Room for a limited time. Originally released as “Nut Brown Ale,” Rugged Trail was eventually given a makeover and became one of our first year-round beers. Rugged Trail boasts a deep bronze hue, rocky head, and subtle hop aroma. Toasted Amber and Chocolate malts impart a rich nutty character and creamy texture, making Rugged Trail an obvious quaffing delight! 5.0% ABV and 33 IBU. 2014 Availability: draft and growler fills only.

Decided to revisit this after several years since it was fresh on tap at the brewery. One word, OUTSTANDING! Blew Bells Jupiter out of the water.

On tap at the Troegs Brewery, bit too dark for a brown ale, but still a nice brown, and not amber, color, wonderful silky white foam, very tasty, and with pleasing lacing to the bottom of the pint. The flavor profile was robust, a good smooth blend of grain flavors, with a nice hop kick. The word was that the batch had been more highly hopped than in the past for Rugged Trail. It was posted as 5.2% ABV and 50 IBU. This is a very drinkable and satisfying brown. It's too bad brown ales aren't the American Beer du Jour these days.
