An imperial brown ale.

A refined beauty that’s more than capable of standing on its own. Developed with an understanding of history, it leaves the past behind and moves forward to write its own story.

This Imperial Brown Ale is brewed with house toasted pecans and a perfectly balanced selection of complex malts. Dark roast and hints of chocolate transition into a smooth finish that leaves you wanting more. With each sip it pulls you closer and envelops you in its mysteries, until you are powerless to resist.
