Celebrating 25 Years of Brooklyn Beer

25 years ago, two neighbors threw caution to the wind, quit their respective day jobs as a reporter and a banker, and founded Brooklyn Brewery. The road to success was paved with many challenges, but today The Brewery’s award-winning roster of beers is distributed in 25 states and 21 countries, and the neighbors, Steve Hindy & Tom Potter (before and after pic below) are two happy campers: Tom has moved on to found the NY Distilling Company, and Steve still sits in the chair at the brewery.

    I’m a manager at a beverage center in upstate NY. We just received a case of the 25th Anniversary Lager with the 2nd label on it. This bottle claims 9% while the first label says 8.6%. I would like to clarify whether it is the same beer with a label mistake or if it is, in fact, a different beer inside the bottle. Please and thank you.
