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.

I’ve had this beer several times in the last month. It’s rotated in at my local. When I first had it I really liked it. It was a little sweet but not too hoppy or sour. The taste was smooth and had a surprisingly Belgian quality for a local beer. What’s interesting is that I don’t think it sits in the keg well or maybe the kegs are a little inconsistant. It’s gotten sweeter and sweeter over the last week and the aroma has gone from rich caramel to a little lifeless. At first I thought it could just be one beer or maybe my pallet getting used to it, but it’s been consistant for a the last 4-5 days. I meant to ask when they last changed the keg but this place is pretty busy so I assume they go through a keg every few days. I definitely would have given it an 8 for aroma and taste after the first few I had but downgraded because of my recent tastings. I still like it, just not like I did and it is good to see an American brewery toning down the hops and creating a more drinkable brew. Since is supposed to be their original recipe, I’m guessing that is how the early US micro’s were brewed.

Wenig Carbo, dunkelbraun, in der Nase schöne Nalznoten mit einer gewissen Fruchtigkeit. Im Trunk malzig süffig, leichte Schokonoten mittig, hinten bitter. Schöne Komposition!

12 fl oz bottle from Beer Supreme, Oldenburg, 2,69 €. A nice red brown in the glass, one finger frothy beige head. Fresh hopy on the nose with malt in the background. Taste starts decent hopy with roasted malt, some orange sourness in the background row. Getting dry with roasted malt in the second part.

Piwo metne w kolorze brazowym nalewa sie z dosc obfita sredniopecherzykowa piana. W aromacie karmel i orzechy z domieszka chleba. W smaku mamy praktycznie to samo. Piwo jest dosc slodkie z niska goryczka i wysyceniem na srednim poziomie.

Une belle Brown ale, style malheureusement trop rare. Belle couleur brune profonde, nez et arômes doux, maltés, présence de caramel, un peu de chocolat et de fruits secs. Ensemble doux, rond, une bonne bière de pub
