Indian Brown Ale bottle

Indian Brown

The prototypical Dark IPA

Forget about the car companies, this is the original hybrid. A cross between a Scotch Ale, an India Pale Ale and an American Brown, Indian Brown is well-hopped and malty at the same time (It's magical!).

The beer has characteristics of each style that inspired it: the color of an American Brown, the caramel notes of a Scotch Ale, and the hopping regimen of an India Pale Ale. We dry-hop the Indian Brown in a similar fashion to our 60 Minute IPA and 90 Minute IPA. This beer is brewed with Aromatic barley and organic brown sugar.

Indian Brown is available year-round, so you should be able to find it at fine retailers and restaurants that carry our other year-round beers. Don't see it? Ask! Most great retailers would love to hear from you.

For the story-behind-the-story on Indian Brown, please check out Sam talking about (and enjoying) it in our Quick Sip Clip. Cheers!
