Today we are drinking a beer out of the Biltmore Brewing Company, Cedric’s Brown Ale, which of course is a part of the Biltmore estate in Asheville. The estate’s brews are named after George Vanderbilt’s beloved Saint Bernard, Cedric. The estate owns the recipe and the brewing ingredients. They use an arrangement called alternative proprietorship to brew the beers at Highland Brewing Company. Cedric’s Beer Brown Ale is big, friendly, and approachable. The deep russet-colored beer offers hints of caramel and roasted barley, with a nutty flavor produced by Victory malt. The crisp finish is marked by well-balanced hops.”
