Notes / Commercial Description:
One of the coolest styles in the BJCP (Beer Judge Certification Program) as its development came out of American Homebrewing! This is where our Brown comes from as well. We keep this beer riding a line between chocolate bitterness and coffee roast and support it with American Hops as well. Brown Beer is one of our favorite styles and has a lengthy history due to the fact that most malt kilning plants in ages past were using direct heat to roast and kiln. It was a lot harder to keep malt light in color back in the day, but we've got most of it down to a science now.

Medium dark, heavy lace, rather thick, with a smoothe balanced taste. More of a roasted taste than anything else, but more sophisticated drinkers will not other more subtle flavors.

On draft at Roast House. Surprisingly good. Good roast in the aroma, very tasty malt with some roast, very smooth and lip smacking. Rolled through a pint. Excellent brown.
