A Note on This Beer
Almost all beer geeks of a certain age remember Pete Slosberg and his legendary Pete’s Wicked Ale.
It’s the original American Brown Ale that set the standard for all Brown Ales after it. For many of us, it was THE beer back in the day — the one you’d bring to your college buddy’s house party, or the beer you’d nervously sip during awkward first dates.
Not ringing any bells? That’s probably because Pete’s brew has long since disappeared from store shelves. Thanks to Hoppin’ Frog Brewery, now you have a chance to taste that beloved beer once again!
These masters of all things dark and boozy teamed up with Pete Slosberg himself to create Re-Re-Pete 3X — a revival of one of America’s favorite Brown Ales.
It uses the same Brewers Gold Hops and the same smooth, specialty malts. Except, unlike Pete’s, this Imperial Brown Ale is wicked boozy, rocking your world with a mind-buzzing 15.6% ABV!
Don’t let that scare you — you’ll hardly notice the big ABV behind Re-Re-Pete’s sticky waves of caramel, butterscotch, and spiced vanilla, tinged with subtle notes of resinous hops.
Take a sip, and you might feel like you’ve stepped through a time machine back to 1995. If you never got to try the original Pete’s, now you can grab a stash of this stuff and discover the flavors that delighted your craft beer forefathers!
Hoppin’ Frog’s boozy brews have earned oodles of GABF, International Beer Fest, and World Beer Cup awards!

Not too shabby, high ABV. Has an Arrogant Bastard sort of bitterness to it which makes the small can a good choice
Rich & Boozy terrific brew
I didn’t love this, I have to say. So sweet. I expected the flavor to be much more complex
Very very strong, but seems to be so easy to drink.
Wooo, really boozy business here.
I haven't had too many brown ales, but being on the high abv, this was drinkable and smooth.
I thought it was really smooth for the alcohol content.
Ummmm no. The 16% is just too much. Tastes like beer flavored booze
Smooth and tasty. Like the hoppy flavor for once.
great front, but back can get you. flavor is solid.
way more smooth than it could be, I also like the sweetness
I’m not sure what to think about this. Too boozy I think.
Bro. Do these guys ever disappoint?
boozy, old school heavy handed execution of a beer. this reminds of stone old guardian or a double Bigfoot.
solid brown ale. nothing fancy, but good
the alcohol content was just too much for my taste…all I got was a weird flavor as a result
drinks like a massive American barleywine with a gorgeous red hue. Rich & malty meets a bitter kick with an exceptionally long, warming vanillin oak finish. Reminds me of an aged single malt. You sure this isn’t barrel aged?! 🤔
boozy, strong, warming
strong, dried fruit, sip with caution!!
solid brown ale. def appreciate the higher abv.
Not a huge brown ale fan, but this one was pretty good. A lot of booze on this one.
a little too hot still
Smooth and malty. Don’t really notice the high ABV. Good sipping beer.
thankfully it was in a small can. very intense dark beer. I got a lot of bitterness but not a ton of booze, surprisingly.
malty but not overpowering. back side is a little bitter but not awful
Overwhelming first taste but mellowed out with layers of flavors.
you really get the classic brown maltiness, but I think the booziness shines through a bit too much for my liking. Glad it comes in an 8.4 oz can, because this could kill a man.
