Oh man, I love this beer. I was shopping with a friend the other day and grabbed this guy to try, because I have dogs, you know, and there is a dog on the label. (NOTE picture of Buster my black lab mix, and the stein I made with a dog on the side) My friend said he couldn’t get the beer because the name Ellie is also his wife, and so he couldn’t possibly bring it home. Ha! Big mistake, and more for me.
I like a brown beer, especially in these cold months we are headed into. Brown beers have sometimes surprised me, because they don’t have the big taste of the porters or monster taste of the stouts. Ellie’s Brown beer pours very deep and dark brown with a nice creamy foamy top. I had a stout last night, and I was surprised that this brown was nearly as dark (in my memory anyway). This may be the tastiest and most flavorful brown I have ever had, and as the wife said sadly "there isn’t anymore?". Well, we can get more.
