Brooklyn 1/2 Ale

Brooklyn Brewery 1/2 Ale harks back to traditional farmhouse ales, which used to quench the thirst of farmhands and other laborers on hot sunny days. These saisons were complex yet clean, low in alcohol and high in refreshment.

Brooklyn Half Ale is an unfiltered, clean, and balanced saison, with a hazy, pale yellow pour. It packs a symphony of citrusy hops over a gentle malt base that clocks in at a pleasantly restrained 3.4% ABV.

Try it alongside fish, salads, fresh cheese and light pastries, or just keep it on hand for the end of a long day. After all, it only tastes like a big beer.
