BJ's Nutty Brewnette®: An American-Style Brown Ale

BJ's Nutty Brewnette® is an American-style Brown Ale that's sure to please. Unlike English-style Brown Ales, which tend to be heavy on the malt, BJ's Nutty Brewnette® adds a healthy dose of hops for greater balance. The bitterness of the hops balances out the sweetness from the four different dark malts quite nicely. As its name indicates, BJ's Nutty Brewnette® also has distinctive nutty notes. This is due to Victory Malt, one of the four malts we use in crafting this beer. This combination of sweet, hoppy and nutty flavors makes BJ's Nutty Brewnette® a favorite for all kinds of beer-drinkers.
