Brown ale tends to be a mellow, sweet variety in the ale family, but American hops make for a drier brew with surprising citrus notes. Duke’s Cold Nose is full of malt, caramel, chocolate, and brown sugar flavors, but has a fruit finish that is often described as apple or fig.
This Jacksonville, FL, brewery produces a consistent line of traditional beer practically in our back yard. What once was a hobby swiftly became a passionate family business. Instead of day-tripping to Jax though, you can always come by Loosey’s for a taste of the good brew.

Duke’s Cold Nose Brown Ale
“A mild brown ale named after Duke, the owner’s late, beloved boxer. This local favorite has hints of chocolate and caramel with a smooth nutty finish. A well-balanced, flavorful brown ale that’s perfect for any time of year.”
