Bender is a category-bending American brown ale brewed with oat crystal malt. It is described by the brewery as “crisp and lightly hoppy, complemented by the velvety sleekness oats deliver. Belgian and British malts usher in cascades of cocoa, bitter coffee, caramel, and hints of vanilla and cream.”
Co-owner Chris Andrus wants to make it clear that "this is NOT a novelty beer." Label Up is "first and foremost a brown ale." The maple and pecan flavors are not intended to create an overly-sweet palate and should not prevent anyone from enjoying multiple pints of it!
