“Baller” Brown Ale

spring

Nothin' but grit and grind in this pint.

Cellarman John nicknamed this previously un-named brown ale in honor of the Memphis Grizzlies' appearance in the NBA playoffs. They kicked ass, and so does this beer...

History

Brown ales were first brewed in the 1600's with 100% brown malt. However, the style faded from popularity and only began a resurgence in the 1920's in America. The style is very diverse in qualifications but typically require a dark amber to brown color and chocolate and/or caramel characteristics in flavor.

Appearance

An opaque dark brown body. Tan head.

Aroma

Light sweet chocolate and roast aroma. Then be prepared for the dry hopped bouquet.

Flavor

Southern English Brown meets American Brown. Chocolate and brown malts pair with a huge Simcoe dry-hop kick. Our take on this style adds more hop bitterness and flavor than a conventional brown ale would dictate.
