Here's our tribute to Robert Crumb's 'Keep on Trucking' comic!
Our American Amber is easy on the hops with a smooth finish and rich malt flavor. It has a higher mouthfeel and more body than it's Pale Ale cousins, and is a great beer for craft beer lovers. Our recipe features Pale, Caramel, and Biscuit hops with Magnum and Crystal hops, making this an easy to drink beer for those looking to just kick back and enjoy the day.
Amber beer is the gateway drug into craft beers, and the next thing you know, you'll be knee deep in Belgians and Saisons while trying to spontaneously ferment a lambic.

The American Amber style is a close relative of Irish Red Ales, and is a favorite among brewers who prefer it's more robust body and mouthfeel, along with it's ample use of American hops used for flavoring and aroma.

I am new to homebrewing and literally just had my first brew day two weeks ago! I brewed both the Amble Ale and West Coast Amber Ale that day and so far so good...actually about to move them to secondaries.
Anyways, the shipment arrived on time and even came with a checklist to make sure nothing was not forgotten. Honestly, I'm excited to taste our first batches from these kits!!! (We did an OG taste and they were both really good, so I'm anxious to see how they come out.)
Everything was super easy to pull out and organize the night before. Brew day was great, as the instructions were really easy to follow. I also had an experienced brewer there to help with the odds and ends...like when to add the irish moss or how to keep the brew from a boil over, etc...
Overall, I am very pleased with the experience I have had on homebrewsupply so far, am excited about the new journey, and look forward to trying more supplies from you guys in the future.
This recipe was my first home brew. It turned into a nice amber ale with a very nice hop note. My wife has informed me that one of my kegs will more-often-than-not have this beer in it. Sounds like I need more kegs!
Thanks HomeBrewSupply.com for a great introductory brew. My family and friends are hooked on my creations.
Give me 3-4 more weeks of aging and I'm sure it will be good. Will send update then. Prost!
