Shackmeister Ale

We've been friends with Danny Meyer and the team behind Shake Shack since their early days at the Union Square Cafe. In 2008, shortly before the expansion that would bring their Madison Square Park Shake Shack to the world stage, they came to us and asked if we could create a beer to match their delicious burgers. A job like that would call for a great deal of burger-related research, so we jumped at the opportunity.

A great many "field trial burgers" later, we delivered the first kegs of Brooklyn Shackmeister Ale to Madison Square Park. Today, Shacks around the world proudly stock the nobly-purposed ale. We brew Shackmeister Ale as a hearty pale ale with plenty of malts to match the rich, griddled beef in every Shackburger. A bright burst of hops unifies the finish and invites the drinker to take another bite and accompanying sip.

Naturally, you can find Brooklyn Shackmeister Ale at Shake Shack locations. Add it to your usual order and enjoy.
