Brooklyn Beers

Brooklyner Weisse

Refreshing, light, and brisk, wheat beers have been popular in Bavaria for centuries. Weissbier or hefeweizen (wheat beer with yeast) was once brewed exclusively by the Bavarian royal family. In the 1800’s, they were popular among German immigrants to the United States. Our Brooklyner Weisse is brewed in the classic German style from German wheat and barley malts. Our special Bavarian yeast produces the flavors and aromas that wheat beers are prized for – bananas, cloves, and melon, with a smoky note in the background. This beer is traditionally left unfiltered, so there’s a dusting of yeast still in the beer, adding the hazy appearance and greater depth to the flavors. Pour, admire the big fluffy head, and enjoy sunshine in a glass.

We're currently working on an experiment to bring Brooklyner back to the bottle. We've released a slightly different formula under the name "Brooklyner Wheat Beer" in a few random locations. If you happen to see it, grab a Brooklyner and email info@brooklynbrewery.com with your thoughts.
