Corner-B-Mike

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 #9: Sun Don’t Shine
Style: A Strong Mild
ABV: 4.9%
Notes: A Brooklyn Summer Ale turned Black and tropically dry-hopped
Available: Fri, January 24th until it’s gone!

BREWER #9: Michael Steinschneider
Born: 
May 2nd, 1987
Started at Brooklyn Brewery: 2011
Favorite Place to Drink: My living room, hopefully not alone

    how can I purchase “Sun Don’t Shine” in Chicago – am willing to pay for shipping – please let me know

      Unfortunately, you would have to know someone to get it. The micro brews that they do like this at Brooklyn Brewery are only available at the Brewery in the tasting room. While this is the best beer that I have tasted in a long time, it will only see the light of day outside the brewery if enough people demand it, which I think has only happened once before, and that is a beer that may only be available from Brooklyn in its brewery in Sweden. Sun Don’t Shine deserves to be out there, but the beer world is a highly competitive one. Maybe drop Michael Steinschneider a note at Brooklyn Brewery and see if he can somehow set you up. Make sure you get a copy of what he wrote to describe his inspiration for the beer.
