4.75% Brown Ale | 6 Ratings |
Calling all coffee lovers! Introducing CB's Canaltown Brown Ale, the second in a line of regional custom creations from Custom BrewCrafters of Honeoye Falls! We took a traditional English style Brown Ale and added fresh coffee specially roasted for us by the great folks at Canaltown coffee roasters. The Crystal and KilnAmber malts create the backbone of the beer and balance the coffee flavor perfectly. We went light on the hops to let the earthy coffee aroma come through. The chocolate malt gives the beer its coffee color and dry finish. Also, just as we don?t make non-alcoholic beer, we also don?t make decaf. This beer has a small amount of caffeine. Enjoy in moderation! Cheers! Brewed with Pale, Crystal , KilnAmber and Chocolate malts, and hopped with First Gold hops. Coffee is a special roast made for Custom BrewCrafters by CanalTown Coffee Roasters.
