An American Brown Ale with a WCBC reputation for big flavor (see our dinner menu!). This beer has the most loyal following amongst the party faithful. Malty, hoppy and nurturing; a beer that delivers on all sensory levels without going out of bounds.
A deep, mocha-colored beer that combines caramel and chocolate malts with Northern Brewer and Cascade hops. This brew is loaded with chocolate and coffee played against citrus and stone fruit with a mellow bitterness.

A straight up American Brown Ale spiced with German and Canadian rye. The color is a rich medium brown with a creamy golden head and plenty of sweet, fruity malt notes in the nose. The flavors include malted sugars, candied fruits and pumpernickel bread balanced with an abrupt citrus and herbal hop character at the finish.

Watership Brown is Red Hare’s hopped up brown ale. Medium brown in color, this beer starts off with an almost nutty nose. The initial taste is very sweet and then followed by the roasted character of the darker grains used in this beer. At roughly 55 IBU’s the hop character is very noticeable but not overpowering and balances with the 7.2% ABV for a slightly sweet, somewhat hoppy, and definitely roasted finish.
Named after the little birds that fly by the brewery looking for grain after the weather turns cold, this was originally to be a Fall/Winter seasonal. But, Captain Lawrence underestimated the market for this smooth and malty brown ale, and they decided to keep it for year round enjoyment.
Durty is a big beer, packed full of big hops. We've used Polaris, a new German high alpha variety for bittering, followed by American hop icon, Nugget, for the flavor additions and finally, a boatload of Simcoe post-fermentation for dry-hopping. The malt selection isn't too different from Old Brown Dog, but it's a bit heavier on the nutty character and dark cocoa notes.
Wheelers is a rich brown ale with chocolate and toffee caramel notes. Oatmeal is added for an earthy creaminess that gives it a unique smoothness, yet still thirst quenching. Challenger hop is used to give Wheelers a particular hop spice characteristic that will leave you intrigued and asking for more.
