Before Brooks Brewing opened, a massive mound of hops were stolen by none other than Lil' Ducka himself - leading this beer to initially be released as a Blonde ale. Eventually, Lil' Ducka was apprehended and the hops were returned allowing Brooks Brewing to brew this session IPA with easy drinkability and just the right hop presence. Lil Ducka's wherabouts are still unknown.

Barley Helmet Brown Ale
Lots of hard labor went into constructing the tap room at Brooks Brewing. Likewise, lots of tasting went into development of this brown ale. Occasionally these two duties (construction and sampling product) would occur simultaneously. It was when we noticed that the inside of our brewers welding helmet smelled of freshly cracked malted barley that the name of this beer was born. Medium in body with rich caramel, biscuit and light chocolate flavors. Almost no hop presence. Clean American ale style finish.
