HomebrewCon 2016: #SharingIsCaring Brown Ale


The BSG HandCraft booth at this year’s HomebrewCon in Baltimore will be pouring some homebrews from our staff, each highlighting different malts.

Cody Myers-Miller, BSG’s Packaging Manager, chose a Northern-style English brown ale as inspiration, showcasing Crisp malts and enhanced with a healthy charge of oats in the mash.

Here is Cody’s recipe:
