The Good Beer Army strengthened its numbers this past week by one more as Kyle popped open the first bottle of his first batch.
This knucklehead of a brother-in-law couldn’t just settle for starting out with a pale ale or an amber. He had to fool around right out of the gates. He is a true homebrewer at heart.
Fond of Rogue’s Hazelnut Brown Nectar, Kyle was determined to emulate this libation. Unfortunately, he couldn’t find hazelnut extract. Instead, he improvised with black walnut, nutting up the nut brown in a different direction. The beer was tasty with the black walnut mingled with chocolaty notes, a noble First Beer, as are they all.
