Brooklyn Pilsner

Since it emerged from central Europe in the 1840’s, pilsner has vaulted over regional styles to become the world’s most popular style of lager. From grand halls to modern house parties, beer drinkers around the globe are familiar with the cool, refreshing experience a pilsner promises. But not all modern pilsners are created equal.

Brooklyn Pilsner returns to its roots to create a snappy lager that would make its ancestors proud. European two-row barley malt and German-grown Perle and Hallertauer hops provide a crisp bitterness and fresh, floral aroma. We ferment Brooklyn Pilsner at cool temperatures before giving it plenty of time to mature in the lagering process, resulting in a beer with superior complexity and smoothness. We believe you will find there to be none finer.
