UPDATE // MAY 18 “Centerfold” by Rob Lemery — a delectably hoppy and floral (literally, via a special addition of rose hips) west coast pale ale — was tapped tonight at a special gathering in the brewhouse packaging room packed with friends, family and colleagues (photo evidence above). Centerfold is now on tap in the Tasting Room. There are only about 40 kegs… so enjoy it while you can!
Ladies, gentlemen and ale lovers hark! The Worshipful Company of Brewers is 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/her own draft-only beer, to be served exclusively at the Brewery Tasting Room until the last drop has been squeezed from the taps, and each with the possibility of blooming into a fully distributed Brewmaster’s Reserve.
