Dubbed Mudslinger Spring Ale, the beer is a retooling of the classic Nut Brown that many of you recall seeing on draft at the Forecaster’s Pub.

The malts, which include pale, chocolate, three different caramels and a touch of roasted barley, lend flavor, complexity and offer excellent drinkability.” Greg Deuhs, Redhook brewmaster
