The Worshipful Company of Brewers is once again upon us. The charter of this sanctified league dictates that each member of the Brooklyn Brewery brewing team will design and create a batch of his or her own draft-only beer, to be served exclusively at the Brewery Tasting Room until the last drop has been squeezed from the taps.

Brewer #12: Molly Browning, Barrel Program Manager

Started at Brooklyn Brewery: November 4, 2013
Brewer’s Notes: “Brewing this lager, with its unfamiliar techniques, unforgiving yeast, and the technical precision and delicate flavor required to execute it successfully, intimidated me. This beer is inspired by a courageous person, by the beautiful and successful life he has led with strength and the inspiration he provides to so many people, including myself. If I got this one beer right in his eyes, then nothing else matters. It is supposed to taste elegant and blossom on the tongue in contrast to the dark color.
