Austin Homebrew Supply has this Nut Brown Ale. I really enjoyed it after about a month of bottle conditioning. I've made it once but I will be making more of it. There are more comments on it at the bottom of the link.

I just brewed this last Friday, picked it up from Northern Brewer. I'd be happy to let you know how it finishes! I plan on racking this weekend, and brewing another.

I did a Brewer's Best Imperial Nut Brown and it is one of my favorites.

"Do Your Brew" out of Westminster, CO, has a nice one. I have one in primary at the moment, actually.

I'd recommend Northern Brewer as well. None of their kits are bad and all yield a pretty decent result and the Nut Brown was one of my favorites when I first started out. Actually, I think it was my first brew ever!

Northern and MoreBeer both make a Moose Drool knockoff that is spectacular. we've brewed it 4 times and are brewing it again this weekend. Use NW Ale yeast or 1056 or irish. Add an extra pound of DME for a nice ABV bump.
The Nut Brown from Northern is fantastic but can be a little weak like Newcastle (which i love by the way).
Moose Drool for a little more malt and kick.

Thanks guys for all of your inputs. I am deciding between Northern Brewers Nut Brown Ale kit and their Caribu Slobber kit. Which would you say is closer to Brooklyn Brewery's Brown Ale?
