VANCOUVER, BC – Faculty Brewing has announce the release of brewer Ingeborg Vijn’s take on a classic UK beer style.
449 English Brown Ale is a 4.5% abv and 30 IBU ale described as follows:
This English Brown Ale is brewed with 70% English Pale Ale malt which gives a complex malty flavour including bread, honey and dried fruit notes. The Crystal Malt that crunches in the mouth contributes to the darker colour and gives the beer a full body and caramel taste. We used Chinook hops for this ale, a beautiful dual-purpose hop that provides both bitterness and aroma. The bitterness is light to medium but we tried to use enough to get the pine and spice aromas out of the Chinook by adding part of it at the end of the boil. Fermented with an English Ale yeast that, together with the English malt, gives this Brown Ale its English character.
449 English Brown Ale is available now in for glasses and growler fills in the Faculty taproom.
