Green Beacon Barbary Coast American Brown

Green Beacon (CUB/Asahi)

Published July 1, 2014

In the mid 19th century a motley crew of Australians terrorised an area of California known then as the Barbary Coast. They were drawn to San Francisco in search of one thing: gold. In Barbary Coast Brown we've utilised El Dorado hops, a new gold from the west coast of the USA. Combined with the iconic Simcoe hop and backed by a malt bill that includes British pale, roast, chocolate and crystal malts Barbary Coast Brown at 5.9 percent ABV and 50 IBUs is one our most intense beers to date. The combination of pungent, piney hops and woody, toasty malt gives this beer a distinct gingerbread note. Sweet malt flavours dominate up front and are finished by a firm bitterness that lingers briefly before slowly fading from the drinkers palate. Barbary Coast started as a special release but due to the popularity of the beer joined the permanent line up here at Green Beacon as our Winter seasonal in 2014. Brewer's notes
