Troy Brewers’ Blog #1

Welcome to the Brown’s Brewing Co. Brewers’ Blog! 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! New Beer! 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) Want to know more about some of the styles or techniques and ideas behind the beers? Let us know! We are happy to answer any and all questions and comments you may have. Also, stay tuned for more information about our budding sour beer and barrel aged program! Cheers! Lee and Dan Troy Brew Team

Intonation Release – February 29, 2020

Occurring every four years due to the earth’s revolution around the sun, us humans add an additional day to our calendar. That day is known as leap day. Since this extra day is a gift and we’re a brewery that loves to throw a party, we’ve resurrected a favorite beer of ours, INTONATION DIPA, and will release it on leap day, 2.29.2020. INTONATION DIPA is limited in quantity, therefore cans will only be available from our taprooms, starting at noon. Later that evening our Troy Taproom will host for the first time, The Brass Machine, a New Orleans style-street brass band that will help us move our hips and warm our hearts. Music is at 9 pm and there is no cover. Back to the beer. 2020’s INTONATION DIPA features Citra, Amarillo, and Mosaic hops and 7.5% alcohol by volume, which is just enough to keep you dancing strong all night long! The can art was hand drawn by Troy Taproom bartender Julie Borden. Cheers to Julie for all she does.
