Malty McFly

This Irish Style Red Ale is our St. Patty’s Day gift to you! Malty McFly truly lives up to its name. A generous portion of British caramel and amber malts gives Malty McFly a delicious malty sweetness and toasty flavor, while a touch of roasted barley balances it out with a slightly dry finish. Fermented […]


Single Hop Project

As much as I love to go overboard and create needlessly complex recipes with many different types of malts, hops, fruits, spices, dog hair, etc., producing beers with more layers of flavor and complexity than I’ll ever be able to detect, sometimes one needs to step back and simplify. Thus we have the Single Hop […]

La Fin Du Narb

One of my favorite things about home brewing is I get to make whatever kind of beer I want. I can choose to brew within the parameters of a certain style, or completely ignore style guidelines altogether. Typically I have a specific flavor in mind so I find the right style to start with as […]

The Epic Tale of the Abandoned Ale

Let me preface this by saying, I had a very well thought out strategy… After a slew of experimental beers I started thinking about how pure our process was.  Our explorations have been solely based on the ingredients and proportions that we were including without consideration being given to the brewing techniques we were using.  […]

German Assassin

Named after a bar regular at my old stomping ground, Uno Chicago Grill, German Assassin is a pseudo-Schwarzbier (German Black Lager). I say ‘pseudo’ because our version is not really a lager. To simulate the lager experience we used a clean fermenting ale yeast, and fermented it at the coolest temperatures our humble castle will […]


Cranmerry Christmas Brown Ale

Christmas 2010 marked the end of a full year of brewing for NARBrew. It also ignited our passion for brewing in that we released more new brews in the shortest amount of time yet. While searching for the best way to flavourify the Holiday season I tried to reach for a Christmas flavor that was […]

Holiday Hefeweizen

Holiday Hefeweizen On a cold, rainy fall day in 2009 I was out on a run training for the Philly Marathon. Naturally, I was thinking about Christmas and beer. It was then that I had the idea for Holiday Hefeweizen. I didn’t know exactly what should go into the beer to add the “holiday”, but I […]
