On Jan. 12, 2011 a fire broke out at Pete’s Greens in Craftsbury, VT, destroying years of hard work, commitment, and innovation. As the flames settled, the main barn containing processing equipment and storage was reduced to ashes. Rock Art Brewery is committed to helping rebuild Pete’s barn by donating proceeds from this limited libation. Pete’s Greens Barn Raising Brown Ale is an English style Brown Ale with rich caramel and toffee notes and earthy hop flavors from the Kent Golding hops it is brewed with. This beer pairs beautifully with roasted root vegetables and slow braised meats.

A pretty good brown ale. Aroma is of caramel and nuts, a bit of smokiness. Earlier in the bomber when the carbonation is a little stronger this has a better mouthfeel. As this warms it loses carbonation quickly and gets a little too flat for my liking. Good mix of sweet malt and bitter finish. I’d drink this again.

Brown color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malts, nuts, light roast, and vanilla. Taste of sweeter caramel malts, dry roasty malts, some nuts, light hop, and a semi sweet finish.

A well made brown ale with slick caramel notes throughout, bordering on diacetyl accents. A slight hoppiness in the finish helps make this beer honest and rounds out the overall character in full.
