Bad Tom Smith

Brewed by Bad Tom Smith Brewing

American Brown Ale6.2% ABV28 IBU

Independent Craft Brewer Seal

Bad Tom Smith was a felon and a murderer. He confessed to the killing of six men as he awaited his fate at the gallows, telling the gathering crowd that “bad whiskey and bad women have brought me where I am”. That being said, we hope to do penance for his crimes by making good beer for all the bad whiskey he drank. This includes our flagship beer. Deep within this dark liquid lies the essence of a brown ale: a malty, sweet backbone surrounded by notes of nuttiness and caramel, with just a hint of chocolate. Low hop bitterness balances out the rich body to create a solid, impressionable American brown.

Flavor: Nutty and sweet, with caramel and a hint of chocolate.
Clarity: Pours an unclouded, deep amber-brown with a smooth, beige head.
Aroma: Subtle roasted malts, toasted bread, and a notable sweetness.

Food Pairing: Pairs well with roasted pork, smoked sausage and hearty foods; complements the nutty flavors of chicken satay, cashew chicken, pecan pie and peanut sauces. Cheddar, Parmesan, or Romano cheeses.

Hops: Galena, Warrior

Grains/Adjuncts: Maris Otter, Golden Promise, Carapils, Crystal 80L, Roasted Barley, Chocolate Malt, Dark Munich 20L

Yeast: American Ale
