Who can forget childhood memories of gingerbread houses, adorned with sweet, creamy icing and tasting of exotic spices? Our Gingerbread Brown Ale attempts to bring back these memories in a form more suited to mature palates. An array of specialty grains gives this beer its brown color, its sweetness, and its chocolate-roasted notes. Molasses, combined with an assortment of seasonal spices, gives this beer a distinct flavor of gingerbread. Pouring a thick brown, the nose will delight and the taste will dazzle your tongue. Soft and delicious like the homemade gingerbread recipes handed down throughout the ages, this beer is sure to please! Please note that the spices called for in this recipe, are not included in the kit. You'll have to raid your pantry or your local grocery store for these.
