COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is not your run of the mill brown ale! Mounds of English malts and modest hops deliver a mouthful of caramel and nutty goodness that is sure to leave you wishing there were more than just two nuts in a sack! The large malt bill and English Ale yeast also lend to the full mouthfeel as well as that satisfying flavor that lingers a while and sends you back to the glass for more Nut Sack! At 7% ABV please enjoy responsibly, the Nut Sack is not a toy.
