This weekend, I was at a bar out of town waiting to watch the Floyd Mayweather fight. Surveying the taps, I noticed nothing but the standard, uninteresting stuff you can find anywhere. Suddenly and abruptly, I bellowed "WHERE ARE THE BROWN ALES?!"

By "suddenly and abruptly, I bellowed," I mean "wondered silently to myself." But nonetheless, that sealed the fate of this week's Beer of the Week: we would feature a delicious, full-bodied brown ale.

And for that purpose, you can't do much better than Smuttynose Old Brown Dog. But why not let the man who makes it explain to you why?


Welp, there you have it! Get to Half Time with your WRRV growler and enjoy half-priced Smuttynose deliciousness.
