Earlier this week I posted a beer review of Elkton Brewing Company's Reddish Knob. Today's review is another option from Elkton, The Nutt brown ale.
The newest brewery in the Harrisonburg-Rockingham area is knocking it out of the park with their selection, and The Nutt is proof of that. While I had some high praise for the Reddish Knob, this beer is a great choice as well.
It has everything you expect from a brown ale - a strong malt flavor, hints of caramel and coffee, and very smooth. Just like Reddish Knob, this beer is named after a local mountain, and I love the way they describe it on their website: "A classic brown, just like the ski slopes in March, except this one is smoother."
If you find yourself in Elkton soon, you better stop in and pick up some of this beer to go. I tried to get a whole crowler to myself, but my parents still weren't letting that happen.
