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 #3: The River
Style: Barrel-aged Belgian Pale Ale
Notes: After blending Scottish and German floor-malted barley with some choice American hops, the brewery house yeast was pitched and fermented “The River” to a lush, earthy elixir that was then stored in pre-used wine barrels from Red Hook Winery. The burnished gold liquid is topped off with rich, pale foam and smells of wood, vanilla, berries and spice.
Pairing: The River will pair well with a Taylor Ham, Egg & Cheese on an Everything Bagel. And Alpine Lace.
Available: Fri, July 20 until it’s gone!
