Product Description

Inspired by the all-malt brown ales in Anchors brewing archives, Brekles™ Brown has a coppery brown color and unusual depth of flavor with hints of citrus which makes for richness and complexity without heaviness. The classic, all-malt, single-hop brown ale. Brewmaster Mark Carpenter's unique recipea tip of the hat to our first brewmasterlooks to both the past and the future. It starts with a special blend of roasted malts. For brewing and dry hopping, a single and distinctive new American hop variety called Citra creates nuanced flavors and aromas complementing Brekles™ Browns unique maltiness. Anchor Brewings roots date back to the early 1850s and the California gold rush, when pioneer brewer Gottlieb Brekle arrived in San Francisco from Germany. In 1871, he purchased an old beer-and-billiards saloon near Russian Hill and transformed it into the little brewery thattwenty-five years laterwould be renamed Anchor. Brekles™ Brown is a celebration of Anchors 140-year brewing legacy.


Varietal: Brown Ale

Region: San Francisco Bay

Region Description:

Santa Cruz to the South, Santa Clara to the south, Sonoma to the north, Sonoma valley to the northeast, Napa to the far northeast. Liver more valley across the bay. So far nothing about San Francisco bay, I've been there and it's nice. It's got strange people, street cars, and it's hard to park on the streets.
