Our American Brown Ale is a in here work mouth-watering beer with notes of chocolate, caramel, and toasted goodness. This version uses a mix of Crystal and Magnum hops giving it a subtle, yet complex flavor profile. 

To further enhance your malt profile and allow your hops to really come through, we recommend using Denny's Favorite (Wyeast 1450), but S-05 or White Labs' WLP001 are also both great choices for this recipe. 

Coke, Bald Eagles and Elvis; This beer is about as American as it gets.

    This was a favorite of my friends! Extremely quaffable. I will brew this one again, especially in the fall. I used Denny’s Favorite (Wyeast 1450) as recommended and it did not disappoint.
