    so i've been tasked with brewing a commemorative beer for our somewhat annual mustache competition. This year it'll be held in Rehoboth / Dewey beach area of Delaware, in Feb.

    any ideas for a style or special ingredients to use? i'm gonna nix beard yeast off the bat here :D

    if it helps, i'm planning on doing a hollywood hogan-esgue trim, complete with part of it dyed blonde

    with it being cold I would say a nice winter brown ale, maybe with some spice or coffee notes to it

    good suggestion.

    i've thought for a while now that brown ales are criminally under the radar

    Ive brewed that it was too alcoholic, I would use less sugar and regular brown sugar or even cane will also work, it came off very sweet and strong, I ended up adding some all spice making a holiday brew, mixed with whipped cream lol
