COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This classic English-style ale is a trove of malty richness and alcohol-generated warmth. Compared to our Barley and Wheat Wines, Old Brewster is a quieter, more restrained strong ale without such a forcefully assertive hop character. A malty self-confidence and depth of character, though, shine through in its rich hues of copper and amber. Slight additions of wheated malt and Japanese candy sugar lend a spritzy and refreshing quality to this otherwise rich and satiating brew. The name "Old Brewster" derives from the historical fact that until the Middle Ages, the brewing of beer within households was the exclusive province of women. Well, we at Baird Brewing, have a budding young Brewster on our team whose dexterous mashing would, no doubt, have the legions of Old Brewsters nodding in approbation.
