*About the Beer: Treasure Chest 2013 – Belgian-Style Brown Ale
“Belgian Brown Ale is a rare beer style these days and we miss having it around to quaff freely so we’re bringing it back this year as our Treasure Chest 2013 release. Belgian specialty malts, Biscuit and Special B are used in concert with British Crystal to enhance the depth of malt flavor and aroma. Styrian Golding is the hop of choice to add pizzazz to an otherwise fruity and malty beverage. Fermenting this malt and hop combination with traditional Trappist yeast gives the beer its unique Belgian, fruity flare and luscious ale qualities.” 5.7% ABV
