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.

Ernest (7241) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 12, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is medium brown. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain/bread), lightly malty (apricot), with notes of souring fruit and bile. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter, unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Surprisingly sour and dirty, and it has an unpleasant reflux-and-rotten-fruit odor. Embarrassing.

Hiding honey and spicy hoppy flavour. Light bitter-sour taste. Medium body, slick texture, light carbonation. It1s a light but meaningful beer. Delicious and easily drinkable.

Frothy head, delicate aroma of wood, slight smoke, slightly burnt caramel. Looks lovely. Easy to drink with flavor containing both bready, slightly sourish malt elements and a pronounced citric, piney hop presence. Flavor is lightly-to-moderately sweet, moderately bitter.

drpimento (3000) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Geez, almost great. Served a bit cold, with very nice, large, tan, foamy, frothy, thick, creamy head that slowly settles and plenty of lace. Color is a pretty, clear mahoganey with many tiny bubble trails. Aroma is banana up front, then malt, roast, toffee, fruit. Flavor’s like nose and is fruity up front too; then there’s the classic brown ale flavors. Oddly, sweetness is muted at first and comes in later finishing along with the bitter and tang. Body and carbonation are good. Finish is like flavor, ending to a not altogether pleasant bittersweet slow taper.
