About Brewer’s Blood

The blood-red ale is everything our brewers live to brew for. We’ve combined the finest continental malts with the most citrusy, piney, and dank hops available. The liquid is dry-hopped multiple times and supported by a robust malt bill that includes Crystal and Carapils malts for a full and smooth mouthfeel.
