Featured Beer Recipe


  • No Blokes Brown Ale

    • ABV: 5.3%
    • IBU: 21
    • Color: 19
    • Grains: Two-Row, Crystal, Victory Malt, Midnight Wheat, Flaked Oats
    • Yeast: English Ale
    • Hops: Nuggets, East Kent Goldings

    No Blokes is an homage to the great English style brown ales from the old world. With a prune like fruitiness, lots of rich carmel and just a bit of English bitterness. The final product is a beer you can sip a single glass of or enjoy all afternoon.
