We stumbled across the Downtown Brown by Lost Coast Brewery at the Top Wine SuperStore. The label just shouts “Try me.” I had no idea where Eureka, California was (5 hours north of San fransciso), but they definitely know how to make good beer. Downtown Brown is the only brew we have been able to find locally.
This nut brown ale rocks! It is one of our favorites. It has fantastic dark roasted malt flavor complimented with Carmel and Vanilla notes. It is perfect and a must try.
*This is the third of a multi-week series on beer where I will be reviewing regional beers from across the country Special thanks this week to Glenn Sparks for his help in tasting. . Enjoy!
