Quadraceratops Lives

Quadraceratops-Slider

Brace yourself for Quadraceratops, the burly new addition to the Brooklyn family. This 9.9% Belgian Quadruppel-style ale is thick with flavors of black cherries, toasted caramel and dark stone fruit that warm you from the inside out as each sip thunders down your throat. As part of our limited, draft-only Brewmaster’s Reserve series, you’ve got just a few months before Quadraceratops goes extinct for good. Be sure to track it down before it gets away.

“Belgium’s Trappist ales and their secular offspring are some of the most rewarding beers in the world to pair with food. Their complex flavor gives you many reference points to work with in seeking harmony with a wide range of dishes,” says Brooklyn Brewmaster Garrett Oliver in The Brewmaster’s TableSo go ahead, order a glass with dinner. Or, if you’re hunting Quadraceratops in Brooklyn, we recommend cornering it at our Dinner Party No. 5 with The Cellars at Jasper Hill on Thursday, November 11 at Humboldt & Jackson.

After his first taste of Quadraceratops, Brooklyn Brewery Chef Andrew Gerson knew it would be the perfect partner for some Jasper Hill cheese: “The rich buttery blend of a slightly aged brie like Jasper Hill’s Moses Sleeper is going to be enlivened by the sweet fruit notes in Quadraceratops, The complexity in this beer will harmonize incredibly well with the subtle properties of Moses Sleeper, and quite a few other cheeses.”

More on Quadraceratops from Brewmaster Garrett Oliver can be found here.

Hoist Forth the Weizenhammer

Weizenhammer-Header

We’re proud to give a hearty welcome to Weizenhammer, our newest Brewmaster’s Reserve. Like the rest of the Brewmaster’s Reserve lineup, this draft-only strong wheat beer will course through the taps of better bars and restaurants for 3 to 4 months before fading once more into the mists of legend. Grab hold of the Weizenhammer while you can.

From Brewmaster Garrett Oliver:

We still remember well the first time we saw them, the tall glasses of Hefeweizen in the vast Bavarian beer gardens, the summer sun glowing through them under the linden trees. Many years later, here in Brooklyn, our very first batches were Hefeweizens, and we loved them so much that we brewed nothing else for six months. And yet, even as we labored happily and brought much joy to the people, we recalled the legend of even better times. Once, long ago, there was a wheat beer so mighty that event the linden trees bowed in its presence. Known as Der Weizenhammer, this beer brought the warmth and sunshine of summer to its greatest heights and sustained the people as they prepared for a bountiful harvest. For ages, Der Weizenhammer was lost, but now it has been reforged here in Brooklyn.

Brooklyn Weizenhammer stands tall in the glass, radiating a hazy, deep golden hue and raising a pillowy white foam as beautiful as the songs of old.  A big, brash weizenbock, the Weizenhammer smashes in with a rush of bold, juicy flavors and a bright zing of hops, then veers to a surprisingly dry finish. Another sip will beckon. Summer tomatoes will soar. Barbecue will be ennobled. Hamburgers will swoon. From spicy Mexican and Asian dishes to rich seafood, the pairings will inspire epic toasts that rattle off the rafters. Come and swing the Weizenhammer.

The Forge:
Style: Strong Weizenbock
Malts: German Pilsner, malted wheat
Hops: Perle, Mosaic
Yeast: Our house Weisse strain
OG: 17.8° Plato
