In the summer of 1858, Main Street in Kansas City was overrun by hogs. The city passed a "Hog Law" authorizing the city’s marshall to catch any of the porkers found roaming in the streets and throw them in a "Hog Pound". Hundreds of swine were apprehended and there owners had to pay fines for their release. A traditional English style Brown Ale, Hog Pound is a slightly sweet and mildly hopped with a smooth , pleasent flavor reminiscent of the Great Brown Ales from England.

Pitcher poured into shaker at brewpub. Aroma: bread, chocolate, caramel, malt Appearance: clear pour and 1 finger of off-white head that dissipated quickly. light brown color. Taste: light sweet and very light bitter Palate: light body and thin texture. average carbonation. finish was slightly sweet and very short. Chocolate and nuttiness were very present. Overall: Pretty good beer from McCoys. Would have liked it to be a bit more hoppy but very solid beer. Would order again at the pub.

Generic brown ale. Almost nothing to distinguish itself. It has some good flavors but too watery too recommend.

On tap. A foamy, off-white head and dark brown body. The flavor is light, with a light palate and nutty and slightly malty flavor. A very drinkable brown ale, but a little on the light side for me.

Dogbrick (11609) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 17, 2011
Sample at the brewpub. Pours an amber-brown color with a medium thin khaki head that recedes steadily. Small patches of lace on the glass. Aroma of brown sugar, toasted malt and mild hops. Medium body with a sweet roasted malt character and notes of light hops and nuts. The finish is roasty with a malty aftertaste. Pretty average overall.
