HAD 62: Brown Ale

For today’s episode we put something dark in our mouths. Wait, that doesn’t sound right, let’s try that again. Today we go down the brown river. . . No, that’s worse. How about, we are up to our eyes in brown stuff today. Okay fine, we are just talking about brown ales today. We go over all the fun of this style with probably fewer poop jokes than this intro, but no promises. So come in and Have a Drink.
