2017 Downtown Bourbon Brown
BROWN ALE AGED IN BOURBON BARRELS WITH ESPRESSO BEANS
Aged in Tennessee Whisky barrels for 6 months with premium roasted espresso beans. A little Bourbon bodyheat on the front melds with some vanilla and nutty cocoa notes. This dynamite Bourbon Brown Ale has a whole lotta soul, and it’s forever smooth.
The Brew Sheet
Alcohol by Volume (a measure of booziness created by the yeast)
International Bitterness Unit (the bitterness of a beer from the hops)
Beer styles are the categorisation of beer into easily distinguishable types. When doing this we look at history, colour, carbonation, bitterness, ingredients, mouthfeel… the list goes on
We'd typically use a lightly kilned Base Malt in a beer recipe, then add Speciality malts (sometimes darker, more complex, different flavours) in small quantities to change the overall taste and colour of the beer.
Hops are used in loads of ways, and they can give different characteristics to beer such as Aroma and Bitterness– this is why they rock!

Please note, the date on the base of the can is the canned on date, not the best before date - the USA way!
