Cumberland Brown’s Brown

Cumberland Brews is a great watering hole in Louisville, Ky.  It’s a mix of brewery, hipsters, and featured quesadillas.  And every Monday, they will fill your growler for $5.  Yes, $5 for a growler refill.

Not every draft is available with the deal, but their staple brews (Nitro Porter, Cream Ale, Red Ale, and Pale Ale) are there every week along with a seasonal or two.  Recently I snagged a jug of the Brown’s Brown Ale.

Brown’s Brown is a nut brown ale (i.e., Newcastle), which is one of my favorite styles of beer.  It has a very dark brown color and a coffee colored head.  A nut aroma is expected along with some mild caramel notes.  A great aspect of this particular beer is the smooth mouth-feel.  I am not sure if it qualifies as a session beer, but beware that you can consume pints quickly. The balance of the beer flavor and the nut flavor is well done.  You know that you are drinking a beer.  There is a great hazelnut flavor that carries throughout the drink and through the aftertaste.  It is slightly less sweet than a New Castle, but they are in the business of beer not candy.

If you are in the neighborhood, I would highly recommend dropping in and grabbing a brew from Cumby’s.  The Brown’s Brown is a solid choice for all you New Castle fans out there, or for anyone trying to impress their friends and upgrade from Bud Light.  If you miss their Brown’s Brown, they also have a Simcoe IPA and a Special Bitter (the latter is eligible for a growler refill).
