This evening at Anchor Brewing in San Francisco, the brewery released their newest beer, Brekle’s Brown, named for the very first brewer at the brewery that would eventually become Anchor, Gottlieb Brekle.
Mark Carpenter, Anchor’s brewmaster showing off his latest creation, Brekle’s Brown.
The beer is a beautiful bright mahogany, with a tan head. The nose is malty sweet, with nutty aromas that continue through to the flavor. With a dry finish, it’s nicely sweet on the palate, and belies its 6% a.b.v. Easily a session brown. Another great complement to the stable of Anchor beers.
I’ll have more later on the event later, but with just another half hour to go, I’m going to go have another beer before heading on to the next event.
