Football Season – Brown Ale

August 9, 2012

2012, Beer Recipes, General posting

When football season comes out I go all out for brewing.  But since there are so many people that drink my beer when it comes to it, I like to go simple.  My crazy beers have a special place in my heart and I will always hold them close, but I don’t think my friends that like commerical beer have the same appreciation for them.   So in general simple is better.

This recipe is a pretty easy recipe, not to many bells or whistles to it.  It is the type of beer that pairs well with just about any football food and in general is just an easy beer to drink.  If you are looking for all-grain go with M.O as the substitute.
