Press Release: Buckbean Brewing Co.


Buckbean Brewing

RENO, NV – Buckbean Brewing Company, the first package brewery in Western Nevada, will be releasing their India Black Ale in cans this month.

Below is the official description from the brewery:

"The Black Adder IBA (India Black Ale) is fully black in color, with a nutty, roasty malt character and a moderate body, with a full, bright hop bitterness and aroma. De-husked black malt provides color and roastiness without astringent sharpness, and dark Caramel and Special Roast also deepen the color while imparting mild sweetness with lots of toasty complexity and depth. Newport, Palisade, Glacier and Ahtanum hops create multiple layers of crisp, American character with no harsh edges. It is 7.3% ABV and has 85 IBUs. We plan to can a limited amount of this IBA for sale only at Buckbean, and it will be available mid to late February."

Buckbean Brewing Company is the vision of Reno native Douglas S. Booth and Veteran brewmaster Daniel B. Kahn. These two self described “beer junkies” joined up in 2004 to create a new kind of microbrew appealing to both male and female beer drinkers.
