House of Homebrew Brown Ale

Brown ale is a very old style of beer that was brewed long before it was formally named. Many of the earliest of English ales were what we would today define as a brown ale. Today the BJCP defines a brown ale as follows: “A beer with an OG falling between 1.060 and 1.040, IBU between 24 and 30 and SRM between 15 and 35.”
