COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewmaster Mark Carpenter’s unique recipe for Brekle’s Brown—a tip of the hat to our first brewmaster—looks to both the past and the future.
Mark’s special blend of roasted malts, inspired by the all-malt brown ales in Anchor’s brewing archives, gives Brekle’s Brown its coppery brown color and its unusual depth of flavor—richness and complexity without heaviness.
For brewing and dry hopping, Mark has chosen a single, American hop variety called Citra. The subtly entrancing flavors and aromas of this distinctive new hop perfectly complement the unique maltiness of Brekle’s Brown.
Ingredients: Water, barley malt, hops.

bigtaster (1033) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 22, 2012
Bottle in tumbler, pours a clear dark red-brown color with a huge beige head that slowly dissipates. Lots of brown sugar on the nose, maybe some orange peel as it warms there is nice spicy nose, candy like. Flavor is unique with subtle fruity almost belgian like sweetness, banana, software citrus hops. Unique brown ale with great complexity.
