Nothing says Christmas like hanging out with good friends and brewing up something special. Thanks to Matt Cole from Fat Head's and Richard (Ricardo) Norgrove from Bear Republic for braving pre-holiday travel to come to Stone the week before the Christmas holiday and brew this “sort of” old-school American (or Texas) brown ale. The recipe we came up with has a host of specialty malts, molasses, brown sugar, Columbus, Bravo, Brewer's Gold and, for the first time ever at Stone, Cascade hops! We’re hoping our brew brings back fond memories of some of the earliest classic craft brews. Enjoy your trip down memory lane!
