Brown Rice and Honey 2012

image The much anticipated release of the Brown Rice & Honey Ale is soon.  Friday Sept 7th at 4PM to be exact.  I’ve fielded many questions over the last few months on it’s expected return.  This is one of our fall seasonals and is based on an Northern English Brown.   The beer is hardly recognizable from it’s base style after 60lbs of Clover Honey and 60lbs of Brown Rice are added to the beer.  The honey brings a floral aroma and honey flavor whereas the brown rice lends more of an earthy spiciness.  Much like last year the beer comes in around 6.1% ABV and 26IBU’s. The beer pairs well with many foods including Nepalese (coincidence?, I think not!).  Last years post can be read here in this conveniently placed link.

Alternatively to the Oktoberfest beers and the early released Winter Warmers that are on the market now, come try a beer that reminds the soul that it is harvest season.
