Smuttynose Durty


From the Brewer – “Brown and hoppy; hoppy and brown – a rare pairing. But that’s the best way to describe Durty, Smuttynose Brewing Company’s new “mud season” ale. Take the caramelly notes of a brown ale, pair them with the hop aroma and flavor of a double IPA, and you’re right in this beer’s wheelhouse. Respected beer writers, bloggers and internet beer geeks have all praised Durty’s delicious balance of two styles. It has enough “oomph” to get you through the chilly nights and frosty mornings of early spring, but the light body and big hop flavor will awaken your tongue and senses for the coming warm weather. And at over 8%, you won’t mind the extra mopping and shoe stomping that comes along with the seasonal thaw.

Kona-Brewing-Kono-Brown-AleFrom the Brewer – “Is there anything more iconic of the lush tropics than the coconut?

Dogfish Head Palo Santo Marron

From the Brewer – “An unfiltered, unfettered, unprecedented brown ale aged in handmade wooden brewing vessels. The caramel and vanilla complexity unique to this beer comes from the exotic Paraguayan Palo Santo wood from which these tanks were crafted. Palo Santo means “holy tree,” and its wood has been used in South American wine-making communities.

This highly roasty and malty brown ale clocks in at 12% abv. A huge hit at our Rehoboth Beach brewpub when first released in November 2006, Palo went into full production at the end of 2007.

At 10,000 gallons, our Palo tank is the largest wooden brewing vessel built-in America since before Prohibition (and we have two same-sized oak tanks right next to it).”

Great with Steak, chorizzo sausage, cajun cuisine, or farmhouse cheddar.
