Brooklyn_Brewery_Lager_-_bottleBrooklyn Lager
Country: USA
Style: American Amber Lager
Malts: American Two-Row Malts
Hops: Hallertaur Mittelfrueh, Vanguard and Cascade
Spices:
IBU: 28
Alcohol by Volume: 5.2%
Format: 24 x 355ml
Availability: Regularly stocked
Tasting Notes:
In the late 1800’s Brooklyn was one of the largest brewing centers in the country, home to more than 45 breweries. Lager beer in the “Vienna” style was one of the local favorites. It is amber-gold in color and displays a firm malt center supported by a refreshing bitterness and floral hop aroma. Caramel malts show in the finish. The aromatic qualities of the beer are enhanced by “dry-hopping”, the centuries-old practice of steeping the beer with fresh hops as it undergoes a long, cold maturation. The result is a wonderfully flavorful beer, smooth, refreshing and very versatile with food. Dry-hopping is largely a British technique, which we’ve used in a Viennese-style beer to create an American original.
Food Matching: From the most modest picnics to the country’s finest restaurants, Brooklyn Lager is enjoyed with everything from salads to steaks. Brooklyn Lager is at home with pizza, burgers, Mexican food, roasted chicken, barbecue, fried fish, pork, and Chinese dishes. In Denmark, people are enjoying it with pickled herring, in Japan they’ve been enjoying it with sushi for years, and in England people find it a fine accompaniment to classic fish and chips.


Brooklyn_Brewery_Brown_Ale_-_bottleBrooklyn Brown Ale
Country: USA
Style: American Brown Ale
Malts: British Two-row, Belgian Aromatic Malts, American Roasted
Hops: Willamette, American Fuggle, Cascade
IBU: 30
Alcohol by Volume: 5.6%
Format: 24 x 355ml
Availability: Regularly stocked
Tasting Notes: This is the award-winning original American brown ale, first brewed as a holiday specialty, and now one of our most popular beers year-round. Northern English brown ales tend to be strong and dry, while southern English brown ales are milder and sweeter. Brooklyn Brown Ale combines the best of those classic styles and then adds an American accent in the form of a firm hop character and roasty palate. A blend of six malts, some of them roasted, give this beer its deep russet-brown color and complex malt flavor, fruity, smooth and rich, with a caramel, chocolate and coffee background. Generous late hopping brings forward a nice hop aroma to complete the picture. Brooklyn Brown Ale is full-flavored but retains a smoothness and easy drinkability that has made it one of the most popular dark beers in the Northeast.
Food Matching: Particularly good with steaks, burgers, stews and barbecues.


Brooklyn_Brewery_East_India_Pale_Ale_-_bottleBrooklyn East India Pale Ale
Country: USA
Style: India Pale Ale
Malts: British Pale Ale Malts from East Anglia
Hops: East Kent Golding, Willamette, Northdown, Centennial
IBU: 40
Alcohol by Volume: 6.9%
Format: 24 x 355ml
Availability: Regularly stocked
Tasting Notes: Brooklyn East India Pale Ale is inspired by the original East India Pale Ales brewed in England in the early 1800’s for the troops in India. Everyday English ales were spoiling during shipment from London, around Africa’s Cape of Good Hope, to Calcutta. Using extra malt and hops, British brewer George Hodgson developed an ale with the bitterness and strength to endure the long sea voyage, giving rise to a great beer style. Our East India Pale Ale is a deep golden beer brewed from British malt and a blend of hops featuring the choice East Kent Golding variety. It is traditionally dry-hopped for a bright aroma of hops, lemongrass, pine and citrus fruit, and has a robust bitterness, a warming malt palate and a clean hoppy finish. We think Hodgson would be rather pleased.
Food Matching: Spicy foods, especially Thai, Indian, Vietnamese, Malaysian,  and Mexican dishes. Also great with crab cakes and salmon route; try it with a good aged cheddar cheese.

After four months of aging, it has a magnificent burnished copper color, an aroma redolent of sherry, citrusy hops and fruit, a soft, warming, complex palate, a spiritous finish, and a strength of 10.3%. It is vivacious when young, but will age gracefully for many years, becoming more complex over time.

Brooklyn_Brewery_Sorachiace_-_bottleBrooklyn Sorachi Ace
Country: USA
Style:
Farmhouse Saison
Malts:
German two-row Pilsner Malt

Hops: Oregon-grown Sorachi Ace
Spices/Adjuncts: Brewer’s white sugar
Alcohol by Volume: 7.6%
Format: 12 x 750ml
Availability: Intermittent
Tasting Notes:
A few years ago, our brewmaster ran into a hop unique enough to deserve its own moment in the sun. A large Japanese brewery first developed the hop variety “Sorachi Ace” in 1988. A cross between the British “Brewer’s Gold” and the Czech “Saaz” varieties, it exhibited a quality that was unexpected – it smelled really lemony.
So we made a special beer with it, and added the beer to our Brewmaster’s Reserve special draft beer program last year. Most Brewmaster’s Reserve beers are only available for a short time, and then they’re gone. But we liked this one so much, we decided to bring it back and give it the star treatment. Brooklyn Sorachi Ace is a classic saison, a cracklingly dry, hoppy unfiltered golden farmhouse ale, but made entirely with now-rare Sorachi Ace hops grown by a single farm in Oregon. We ferment it with our special Belgian ale strain, and then add more Sorachi Ace hops post-fermentation. After the dry-hopping, the beer emerges with a bright spicy lemongrass / lemon zest aroma backed by a wonderfully clean malt flavor.
Food Matching: Pork buns, fish tacos, fresh goat cheese, shrimp, smoked salmon, sushi, prosciutto, curries, salads, grilled meats
