Brew Review: Two Brothers Cane and Ebel

This beer was a great surprise.  I had heard good things about Two Brothers, and this one definitely did not disappoint.

Brewed with Thai palm sugar (Cane), the Two (Ebel) Brothers put together a red rye beer that explodes out of the gate.  It’s reddish brown in color with a big floral hop aroma, much more than you’d expect with any rye beer.  The flavor I found very interesting.  It has a nice smooth sweet malty flavor, but it’s quickly overcome by a spicy, almost ginger taste that carries you into an almost tangy citrusy hop finish.

It’s very tasty and Two Brothers’ little step away from the norm was well worth it.

  1. Was a hit for me at Savor. Was a hit for a few #DCBrews peeps who tried it when I brought some over to a get together this weekend. I love the huge rye presence from the malts. They blended beautifully with the bright hints of grapfruit hoppiness.
