A liquid version of Pumpernickel Bread! This English-style session Brown Ale was conceived of and brewed by our Milton brewer Joseph Lemnah. Daily Wry was brewed with Maris Otter Malt, a hearty dose of Rye Malt, Crystal Rye and Dark Munich Malt. The grains work together to create a bready, full bodied, almost peppery flavor. Joseph also brewed with a pinch Amber, Coffee and Black Malt adding a toasted pumpernickel bread character. Daily Wry is lightly hopped with Liberty to balance the sweetness of the malts and spiced with freshly ground Caraway seeds to round out the illusion of Pumpernickel bread.

On tap @ Rehoboth Brewpub in Feb. I was very excited to try this beer since I’m a huge fan of pumpernickel bread. The beer is dark brown and has a very smoky aroma. The taste is actually at first coffee and then you taste that toasty rye seed character.

Tap at Barcade. Dark brown beer. Sweet rye malts and a prominent aroma of molassess and maple. There is a touch of coffee/cocoa character and some light herbal tobaccoish character. Fairly creamy body initially with a fairly earthy bready maltiness on the back. Lots of rye character on the back. The body seems to thin out a bit as it starts to warm up. It’s interesting but it could be better.

Tap at Barcade during the 75 minute release party. This is a delicious beer. Creamy, roasty, with a great chocolate aroma up front that leads into a crispy rye, cashew, bread. Chalky and rough palate is very much like liquid bread, with a wonderful, fast milk chocolate finish. The rye really shows here, as does the roast. Great stuff.

On tap @ Rehoboth Brewpub-Dark brown color w/almost no head. Slight smokey aroma. Weak smoked wood flavor w/some rye/pumpernickel bread dough & a touch of coffee. Had the taste of a standard brown ale. I’d call this a beer a watered down version of the Palo Santo Marron, almost a Palo light. An after dinner sipper for sure. Not a bad brew, would probably be considered a good brew @ some places, but they have a lot better stuff to offer.

On tap at the brewpub in Rehoboth. Poured into a pint glass. Not much head. Black in color but lets some light through. Weak aroma of some spices. Taste was a light touch of coffee and pumpernickel. It did have some bread characteristics but not much. Texture was a little thin/watery for a darker beer. Low carbonation level as well. Overall just an ok beer. I probably wouldnt get it again.
