We plan on utilizing this space to keep everyone informed on all things brewing, ranging from new beer release dates to small batch experiments that we are working on here in our Troy, NY brewpub. We plan on updating this regularly and will be interacting as much as possible throughout the brew day, so please feel free to comment and leave us feedback on the beers, questions about our breweries, the brewing process, and what we are up to here at Brown’s.
We want to hear from you!
Winter is finally over and we are really looking forward to the warmer months. We have a number of beers that will debut for the first time this summer, along with some oldies but goodies. This list is more of a teaser, we will be following up each of these with a more in-depth description including a release date and photos.
Session IPA: A return offering from last year, featuring a new host of hops including Azacca, Sorachi Ace, and Cascade. (4.8% and 50 IBUs)
English Summer Ale: New to the Taproom, this beer will be an easy drinker, blonde in color with a mellow fruity character from the English yeast, finished with Earl Grey tea. (5.0% and 15 IBUs)
Saison: This one will be quite different from last year’s rendition. Utilizing five different grains and three yeast strains (one wild), this will be a dry and complex beer perfect as a summer quencher. (6.25% and 20 IBUs)
Wild Wheat: Another new beer to the summer lineup. This beer focuses on fruity characters balanced by “rustic” undertones from a secondary fermentation with wild yeast. (5.75% and 10 IBUs)
Iron Horse IPA: A yearly brew made in conjunction with the ALES for ALS Foundation, featuring a blend of seven different hops (Equinox, Mosaic, and five experimental varietals). An unholy lupulin assault, expect bracing fruit and citrus flavors. (6.25% and 60 IBUs)
