Davidson Brothers Welsh Braggot

Tonight’s selection is another beer from Davidson Brothers. As you can tell, I got a lot of them as a gift. Let’s crack this one open.


ABV: 7.3%

Style: Braggot

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “We bought our current building at 184 Glen Street in 1996. It was a great decision, but came with the kind of hard work you only find in old buildings. It was an all-hands-on-deck endeavor as we removed all the trash, junk, wiring, pipes and over 700 cubic yards of interior building materials from the 130-year-old building. Carpenters, plumbers, electricians, refrigeration specialists and more worked tirelessly for over 2 years to realize the vision we had for the space. Today it sits proudly in the center of a thriving downtown, something we always knew would happen. We look forward to continuing to create history here in the Exchange Street Plaza.”

Random: Both the cat and I can’t stop sneezing.

The beer poured with a half a finger of white head that dissipated slowly. It left some lacing on the glass. The body was a hazy mahogany with light carbonation visible and a lot of floating material. The nose had sharp alcohol, pine, and dirt. The taste was slightly smoother with pine, some currants, dirt and a lot of alcohol that finished with brown bread crust. It was quite earthy. The body was thinner than expected with moderate carbonation. The finish was quick and earthy with dirt. The beer was free, since this was a gift, but I just didn’t enjoy this beer at all. Although I give the brewery a lot of credit for making a style that isn’t all that popular, this was a miss.
