Brewmaster Mark Carpenter’s unique recipe for Brekle’s Brown—a tip of the hat to our first brewmaster—looks to both the past and the future.
Mark’s special blend of roasted malts, inspired by the all-malt brown ales in Anchor’s brewing archives, gives Brekle’s Brown its coppery brown color and its unusual depth of flavor—richness and complexity without heaviness.
For brewing and dry hopping, Mark has chosen a single, American hop variety called Citra. The subtly entrancing flavors and aromas of this distinctive new hop perfectly complement the unique maltiness of Brekle’s Brown.
Ingredients: Water, barley malt, hops.

Clear red-brown with a large frothy good lacy head. Smells of malt, caramel and soft fruity hops. Tastes of berries, bread, caramel and a sweet lasting nutty flavour. Lingering bitterness with a pleasant maltiness. Very nice

If a brown ale was hanging out in a bakery too long, this would be the result.... in a good way. Love the malt, the toasted nose. Creamy cookies, cardamom, other spices. Easy to drink. Light for a brown ale, but no lack of flavor.

Fules (792) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - APR 4, 2016
Hatalmas, tartós hab, barna szín. Karamelles, gabonás illat. Gyenge ízvilág, keserűjét csak a száj hátsó részén érezni, karamell csak nyomokban, inkább égetett cukor, de az is alig. Ahogy melegszik javul a helyzet, de nem annyira, mint kellene. Gyenge kis nedű, az anchortól nem erre számítottam. Utóíze a korty folytatása. Közepesen testes, de ehhez hagyni kell melegedni, sokat!

Aroma of creamy roasted malts and gingerbread. Kinda reminds me of the Anchor Merry Christmas beer but less spicy. But the cinnamon and gingerbread is there. Nice light dry hops. Very enjoyable and balanced brew.
