BLIZZARD WOES: BROOKLYN BREWERY CLOSED Monday 1/26 & Tuesday 1/27

CLOSED

As much as we’d love to provide you with refuge from the storm tonight (Monday 1/26) and tomorrow (Tuesday 1/27) and maybe Wednesday 1/28 (we’ll see what the weather holds), the pending threat of the blizzard will result in closed doors here at One Brewer’s Row. Sorry -that’s a closure of both our Company Store hours and Small Batch Tour.

We hope Juno (they really have to name these winter storms now!?) will turn out to be a big bust and we get merely a dusting of snow, but it never hurts to be prepared.

Stay inside and bundle up…it’s getting blustery!

We apologize for any inconvenience and we hope to see you at the brewery soon!

Sorachi Ace’s New Suit

Sorachi-BeerAdvocate

Brooklyn Sorachi Ace has been a beloved beer since its debut as a limited edition Brewmaster’s Reserve back in 2009. It was the first time that the rare Sorachi Ace hop had been featured in a beer, and people went wild for it. The lemongrass-and-dill hop aroma, the lively, citrusy body, and the whiplash-dry finish of our flashy new saison quickly became the most-shouted order at our Tasting Room. It wasn’t long before we welcomed Sorachi Ace to our lineup full time, both on draft and as one of our prized big bottle releases.

Sorachi Ace has continued to gain discerning disciples since those heady early days, inspiring obsession, taking reviews to poetic heights and converting masses to the way of the Sorachi Ace hop. Through all the hubbub, one question kept popping up and growing louder and louder: why wasn’t this beautiful beer in 12oz bottles?

You talked. You shouted. I personally raised a protest right in our offices. And now, our requests are finally fulfilled: Brooklyn Sorachi Ace is now available in 12oz bottles.

Whether you’re new to the world of Sorachi Ace or you’ve been one of the faithful for years, these new bottles are a game changer. Grab a four pack from the store and introduce it to your friends. Order a bottle at the bar and immediately find yourself the best-looking person in the room. You can even take the four pack directly home from the store and be the best looking person in your own house. We’re happy to bring Sorachi Ace to a new, handsome era for all.

If you haven’t come across our dashing new Sorachi Ace four packs yet, search here for some help. Let us know how much you enjoy the new bottle with a post, Tweet or photo and enjoy Sorachi Ace’s new suit.

The Worshipful Company of Brewers, Part X: “Sai Kanifing” by Saidou Ceesay

_DSC0148s

After a slight hiatus, The Worshipful Company of Brewers is back 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.

BEER #10: Sai Kanifing
Style: Smoked Pepper Porter
ABV: 6.72%
Notes: Equal parts smokey and spicy, this is a beer that’s built for cold weather.
Available: Friday, December 5th, until it’s gone.

BREWER #10: Saidou Ceesay, Packaging Operator
Born: 
August 22nd, 1969
Started at Brooklyn Brewery: November, 2012
Favorite Place to Drink: With the other brewers on brewery driveway after work.

The Brewer’s Notes:

This smoked pepper porter has a double meaning – named after the town in Gambia where Saidou grew up, it also means “dark pepper”. “In Africa, everything we eat has spice in it, so I finally came down to doing something with spice.” Bought from Union Square Greenmarket and cold-smoked on a grill outside the brewery, jalapenos lend Sai Kanifing a smoldering heat that’s perfect for winter.
