All three of our breweries feature a Brown Ale as a part of our lineup, but we all like doing big hoppy ales, too. We combined different aspects of our Brown Ale grain bills and bumped up the gravity to create an ABV that would properly counterbalance the increased amount of hops used in this Texas Brown version. This beer has plenty of hops used throughout the boil as well as a hefty dose of dry hops added post-fermentation. Collaboration (brewed at Hop Farm) with CoStar and Shu Brew for 2014 Pittsburgh Craft Beer Week.

Uncertain what a Texas brown ale is, but a good beer regardless. Looks great in the glass with a tan head and dark brown coloration. Flavors of roasted malt, nuts, toast, and brown/chocolate malt on the palate. Has more of a hop bite than I initially expected. Perhaps brown IPA would be a better deScription of the style. Or Texas brown ale, whatever floats your boat.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a dark brown color with a medium grey head. A big sweet malty nose. The flavor is huge soft sugary malts, fresh pine, big nutty toasted malts, coffee. Awesome brown! Lovely.

On tap at Hop Farm. Pours a dark brown with a thick light tan head. Aroma of dark roast, roasted nuts, bitter piney hops, bitter chocolate. Flavor of bitter roast up front, bitter hops, bitter chocolate. A tasty brown IPA - lots of bitter roast and bitter hops. Light palate. Overall pretty easy to drink and an interesting take on a brown ale. 7/4/7/4/15 [3.7/5]

On tap at the brewery. Pours a medium brown with a lighter head. Aroma is of slight cocoa and coffee with some grassy hops. Taste has a sling tang to it and is a tad on the aggressive side.
