The Worshipful Company of Brewers, Part II: “Centerfold” by Rob Lemery

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.

BEER #2: Centerfold
Style: West Coast Pale Ale
ABV: 6%
Notes: A pale ale brewed with rose hips with floral, citrus, melon and tropical fruit
Pairing: Centerfold will pair well with BBQ, yard games and sunshine.
Available: Fri, May 18 until it’s gone!

BREWER #2: Rob Lemery, Cellarman
Born: Ridgewood, NJ
Started at Brooklyn Brewery: 2011
Favorite place to drink: Texas Arizona (Hoboken, NJ)

    Last night was so much fun.  It was wonderful to meet Garrett, and all of your co-workers.  They went out of their way to make us feel welcome.  What a testimonial to you, to have so many of your friends, and our family and friends, come out to support you.  It was your night to shine, and shine you did.  Your “Centerfold” brew was awesome, and you were a wonderful host.  It was very evident that you appreciated the effort everyone had to make to get to Brooklyn at RUSH HOUR …on a FRIDAY night.  You are following your dream, as I always knew you would.  I am very proud of you.  Love you, Mom XO

    Robbie, so sorry I couldn’t have stayed in NJ long enough to experience your evening.  Sound like I missed a good one.  Looking forward to visiting you there in the future!  God bless you for your determination and vision.
