Black Dog’s Bite

American Brown Ale

Our first “real” collaboration other brewers was done with Aaron and Ben Lucas, a duo of brew-happy brothers that work at Closed for Business. It’s a triple threat of sorts - a hoppy, rye, brown ale. While it’s a bit strong for the style, the big hop addition and the rye’s bitterness help contribute to the proverbial “bite,” cutting cleanly through the malt for a balanced drinking experience.
