Days of the Beer, August 27

The beer for today is Lost Coast Downtown Brown.

On August 27, 9163, Julie Dorne Brown was born. Julie, better known as Downtown Julie Brown, was an MTV VJ and host of Club MTV in the late 80's.

Julie was famous for her catchphrase, "Wubba Wubba Wubba". She posed nude for Playboy in March of 1998.

As for the beer:

A smooth, full-bodied nut brown ale, lightly hopped with a hint of roasted and crystal malts. This ale is dark in color without the heavy taste of porter or stout.
It comes in at 5% ABV and has 15 IBU, so it's not bitter at all.

Lost Coast is a brewery in Eureka California. It's owned by Wendy Pound and Barbara Groom. It is one of the few women owned breweries.
