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 #5: Winter is Coming
Style: Oatmeal Stout
Notes: Winter Is Coming is a lightly smoked oatmeal stout. Black as a moonless night, full-bodied, and weighing in at 6.5% ABV, this beer will fortify you for trudging through the snow, but is not so powerful as to leave you lost in a drift. Enjoy your apples and pumpkin pie during these fleeting fall days, but never forget: Winter Is Coming. And Winter has its dark secrets…
Available: Fri, November 30 until it’s gone!
BREWER #5: Thomas “Haile” Price
Born: September 5, 1979
Started at Brooklyn Brewery: 2009
Favorite bar: Whichever one he’s in… unless it’s awful
