How to Brew B’Austin Ale

We unveiled our final Crowd Craft Project brew – B’Austin Ale – at Guy Kawasaki’s Girl + Guy party in Austin, Texas on March 10th. Thanks to everyone who helped create this crowd sourced beer.  The final beer is an amber ale with a slightly hazy appearance, medium body and mouth feel. The beer is rounded out with a spicy hop aroma, notes of toffee and a smooth, yet spicy finish.
