Beer Review

Humboldt Brown Hemp Ale

Our fine Brown Ale is brewed with toasted hemp seeds that add a unique, herb-accented flavor. But we didn’t stop there- the American hops create a perfect balance to the darker malts in this brew. Hungry? Humboldt Brown goes great with a burger and some buddies.

Brewed by: Humboldt Brewing Company, California, United States

Style | ABV:

American Brown Ale | 5.70%
