The whistle shrills just as the sun touches the water line. Clangs from incessant hammering and glowing sparks are all extinguished as the men climb down this great steel skeleton. Copper beams of light shining off the hull highlight the rivets that await you in the morning, but not tonight. Time for a well-deserved pint and the boys are waiting at the pub.

The industrious English shipyard workers who inspired this classic style still inspire us today. Nut Brown Ales historically possess heavy malt flavors but a dry, assertive finish. Copper Yards offers tastes of dark chocolate, toffee, and roasted pecan all in a sessionable 5.0% body. So hang up the hard hat and come enjoy a pint or two with us and the rest of the neighborhood, the work will still be there tomorrow.

We get asked this question a lot so we’ll set the record straight; despite the name, Nut Brown Ales don’t actually have nuts in them. While different varieties of nuts can certainly be added for a different effect, the nutty flavor is actually derived from the malted barley that we brew with.
