As with a lot of specialty beers brewed at Buffalo Brewing Company Paul Stelmach’s India Brown Ale began its life as a homebrewed beer. Paul brought a sample of his beer to Buffalo head brewer Dave Johnson who thought the malt profile was perfect, but the hops needed a little tweaking.
So after experimenting a bit, Buffalo now has on an IBA that Paul describes as such:
“This India Brown Ale is a creamy hopped up brown ale with lots of Caramel and Chocolate flavor and is very sessionable. The ABV is 6% with 50 IBUs. It was bittered with CTZ hops but the flavor and aroma came from Cascade and Amarillo and then it was dry hopped with Amarillo and CTZ to balance out the citrus aroma of the Amarillo hops.”
Paul thinks that this beer may go great with a Buffalo burger. Seems like a perfect excuse to visit Buffalo Brewing.
