Calicraft Brown Ale Oaktown
- Craft Beer Club Selection
Big, bold, and brown, the Calicraft Oaktown Brown Ale redefines the traditional Brown Ale with its hoppy, malty, roasty style. This beer uses California-grown organic Cascade hops that give it light flavors of orange marmalade, while the oak cubes give it structure and a full mouthfeel similar to a great Cab or Zin. The Oaktown brown starts bitter and toasty with subtle notes of smoke, but it then warms with layers of chocolate, toffee, caramel, and oak. The name ‘Oaktown’ is a nod to the city of Oakland, as well as the unique use of oak to balance the hops.
