Brown Ales

Brown Ales can trace their roots back to late 17th century Great Britain. Despite going through some style evolution as well as popularity highs and lows over the centuries, Brown Ales have remained a mainstay in Britain, and the style has gained popularity (along with some further stylistic tweaking) in Belgium as well as here in North America. Calgary’s Wild Rose Brewery won this year with their Barracks Brown. This is a tried and true recipe that they have been brewing for a number of years. It is a great example of an English Brown Ale – with lots of toffee, chocolate and espresso character. Perhaps a perfect beer for fall temperatures. Kirk Bodnar
