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.

Well balanced nose with fruitcake sweetness from the malt (with added malt loaf) and a subtle underpinning of hop tang. Pours a deep brown with a firm faun head and an inner ruby fire. Flavour is some salted caramel malt with a rum n raisin icecream finish. Well balanced and pleasant but a touch thin and a touch bland.

DrNosha (1530) - Baden Württemberg, GERMANY - JUL 21, 2016
12oz Flasche. Tolle rot-braune Farbe. Cremiger hellbrauner Schaum. Nussiges Malzaroma. Ich rieche auch den Hopfen und verbrannter Zucker. Der Geschmack ist kanntig. Malzige Süsse, dann Hopfen und Hopfenbittere. Dann Lakritz und verbranntes Karamell. Kräuterbitter fast etwas beißend im Finnish. Ist ein gutes Bier, aber mir persönlich zu unrund.

MelvinKalksma (801) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - JUN 20, 2016

Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, nuts, bread, dried fruit and hops.

Turbid/opaque ruby/brown beer with a slight/medium beige head.

Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, nuts and dried fruit; ends slightly dry with bread and hops.

This beer is rather complex and balanced, but could have been more intense. The brown malts, dash of roasted malts and the citra hops make this beer rather unique.
