The Worshipful Company of Brewers Part XXI: Kevin Earley

The Worshipful Company of Brewers is once again 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 or her own draft-only beer, to be served exclusively at the Brewery Tasting Room until the last drop has been squeezed from the taps.

Brewer #21 Kevin Earley (seen above left, with Chris Cuzme of Fifth Hammer Brewing Company mid-collab)
: 31
Started at Brooklyn Brewery: June 2016
Favorite Drinking Spot: Fifth Hammer Brewing Company. Kevin and Chris have brewed together around the city, and great minds like a drink.
Good Bad Advice: “It’s useful to know how to roll cigarettes.”
Brewer’s Notes: Kevin set out to create a beer that exemplified some of his favorite parts of brewing: Maris Otter malts, American hops, history, and experimentation. Full English was brewed with a double boil between our Rolec and Newlands brewhouses, harnessing our everyday worker and our original equipment to create something intriguing. It emerges as a balanced but assertive bitter, with plenty of malt character balanced by all-American hop notes. He also split some of the boil off to become a barleywine, destined for a lengthy slumber in barrels with our friend Brett…but that’s another story entirely.
