Abita Turbodog Brown Ale

abita-turbodog-brown-aleFrom the Brewer – “Turbodog® is a dark brown ale brewed with pale, caramel, and chocolate malts and Willamette hops. This combination gives Turbodog® its rich body and color and a sweet chocolate, toffee-like flavor. Turbodog® began as a specialty ale, but has gained a huge, loyal following and has become one of our flagship brews. This ale pairs well with most meats and is great served with hamburgers or sausages. It is a good match with smoked fish and can even stand up to wild-game dishes. Turbodog® is also great for marinating and braising meats and cooking such things as cabbage and greens. Colby, Gloucester, Cheddar and blue cheeses go nicely with Turbodog®. It’s perfect with spicy Louisiana jambalaya or Spanish paella. Some even like it paired with chocolate!

Lagunitas SUCKS Brown Shugga’ Substitute Ale


E. K. Ross would have enjoyed our suffering in 2010 when we saw we couldn’t brew our Brown Shugga. But in that time of deepest despair, as is common to artists everywhere…broke, hungover, abandoned by the muse, and prepared to take a job at Arby’s, we found in that darkness, the spark of inspiration that would yield up this nearly sanctified recipe!

From the Brewer – “This beer is a ‘cereal medley’ of barley, rye, wheat, and oats. Full of complexishness from the 4 grains, then joyously dry-hopped for that big aroma and resinous flavor.”

Dogfish Head Indian Brown Ale

Dogfish-Head-Indian-Brown-AleForget 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 Ale is well-hopped and malty at the same time (It’s magical!).

From the Brewer – “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 Ale in a similar fashion to our 60 Minute IPA and 90 Minute IPA. This beer is brewed with Aromatic barley and organic brown sugar.

Great with balsamic vinaigrette salads, smoked meats, duck confit, braised ribs, venison, prosciutto, stews.

Monks Cafe Flemish Sour Ale

Monks-Cafe-Flemish-Sour-AleAs Belgian beer lovers, you certainly know about the famous restaurant-bar in Philadelphia with the name Monk’s Café.  This restaurant is known all over the USA as one of the best places to find an extensive selection of Belgian beers, and also great food cooked in Belgian beer.  The owner Tom Peters is one of the many people who fell in love years ago with Belgian beer, and one of the few who had the passion and tenacity to learn all about it.

In 2002 he finally had the opportunity, and the courage to convince the Van Steenberge brewery to bottle its famous ‘BIOS – Vlaamse Bourgogne’ under private label for him.  The Flemish Burgundy of the Van Steenberge brewery is an old brown in style, aged in oak, and is one of the oldest brews made by the brewery, at least brewed for over 300 years.  Tom Peters knew the beer long since, but always had trouble finding some bottles, even in Belgium.  Indeed, the beer is only brewed once a year.  A final tasting of a whole line of Belgian Old Browns in the Brugs Beertje bar (Brugge) tilted the decision: this is the best old brown ale in the world!   And Tom went to the brewery to see Mr. Paul Van Steenberge and Mr. Jef Versele, the owners of the brewery.

Well the rest is history, as they say, but we at the Global Beer Network are very honored to be able to import this fabulous, exceptional Belgian beer in the USA.

From the Brewer –Mildy tart sour ale. Light bodied with a lactic/sour nose and a bit of sweet and sour in the finish. Very refreshing!”

Great with Asian, spicy Mexican and even salads!

Anchor Brewing Brekle’s Brown

From the Brewer – Inspired by the all-malt brown ales in Anchor’s brewing archives, Brekle’s™ Brown has a coppery brown color and unusual depth of flavor with hints of citrus which makes for richness and complexity without heaviness. The classic, all-malt, single-hop brown ale.

Brewmaster Mark Carpenter’s unique recipe—a tip of the hat to our first brewmaster—looks to both the past and the future. It starts with a special blend of roasted malts.

For brewing and dry hopping, a single and distinctive new American hop variety called Citra creates nuanced flavors and aromas complementing Brekle’s™ Brown’s unique maltiness.

Anchor Brewing’s roots date back to the early 1850s and the California gold rush, when pioneer brewer Gottlieb Brekle arrived in San Francisco from Germany. In 1871, he purchased an old beer-and-billiards saloon near Russian Hill and transformed it into the little brewery that—twenty-five years later—would be renamed Anchor. Brekle’s™ Brown is a celebration of Anchor’s 140-year brewing legacy.”

Hops: Citra
Malts: Blend of 2-Row Pale, Munich & Caramel

Lienenkugel’s Fireside Nut Brown

From the Brewer – “While the star of this holiday seasonal is the roasted malt character, the well-balanced flavor and brilliant amber tones give Leinenkugel’s Fireside Nut Brown a comforting approachability that you don’t experience in traditional English-style nut browns. English two-row malts give this lager a maple aroma and pronounced chocolate, caramel and hazelnut top notes that dance around the palate before finishing gracefully.”

1 pound ground Italian sausage 
1/2 cup minced carrots
2 cups chopped celery 
2 large yellow onions, chopped
