6A truly great, full-flavored beer has the ability to make you pause and reflect. Open the bottle, fill the glass, sit in a comfortable chair, and the complexities and worries of life sort themselves in priority as the alcohol loosens the log jam in your cluttered mind. With this effect in mind, we have developed our Fireside Ale™.

Our Fireside Ale is a strong English-style ale, balanced and malty. Not at all like highly hopped microbrews, this one has a rich amber Maris Otter maltiness balanced by selected English hops. A well-rounded, full-bodied brew. Alcohol: 6.2%, IBU’s 35

 In formulating the extract for this kit, a large proportion of light crystal malt was used in addition to the Maris Otter malt extract, for a rich partially caramelized maltiness. Includes 11 pounds of our blended malt extract, flavoring and aromatic hops, 125 ml of liquid ale yeast, and corn sugar for carbonation. Makes 5 gallons with a starting gravity of at least 1.068.

Fireside - The best brew

Review by EdandYvonneMoore on 9/16/2005

Pros: I've made Fireside so often, it's about 50% of my total brewing. This beer is the perfect brew for entertaining at home, or for spending the special evening with your wife.

Cons: The cost is a bit higher than other kits, but well worth the money. Why pay a bit less, only to get an inferior product?

Hearty and sweet

Review by MurphysIrish on 10/14/2005

Pros: Wasn't sure about this one when I transferred to secondary because it had a real burnt caramel taste at the end, but after bottling the sharpness mellowed out VERY nicely. More malty than hoppy if you like it that way. I do. Pours into a strong head. Heavily bodied mouthfeel.

Cons: Carbonation light, but that's likely due to brewer error more than anything else.

Smokey/Sweet

Review by tapthis on 12/12/2005

Pros: Full body and nice head.

Cons: A bit smokey for my tastes.

What are the ingrediients

Review by AZ Brewer on 10/22/2006

Pros: Haven't tried the beer yet, still fermenting.

Cons: Ingredients aren't labeled or othewise indicated. No way of knowing what hops or what malt extracts were used. Very disapointing. Everyother homebrew site I've ordered from lets the brewer know what they're brewing. Not Willimans Brewing. Very disappointing.
