Brooklyn Brewery

History


It was during his stint as a war correspondent in the Middle East that Steve Hindy discovered his passion for beer. Having become friendly with diplomats posted to Saudi Arabia, he found he was surrounded by amateur brewing enthusiasts.Thanks to them, he rapidly acquired a taste for flavourful, aromatic artisan beers, a far cry from Bud, Coors and other bland brews so often found in the USA.Upon his return to Brooklyn in 1984, and disappointed to be coming back to a world of tasteless industrial beers, he convinced his neighbour, Tom Potter, to set up a brewery. The Brooklyn Brewery was officially launched three years later.

Knowhow

Based in an old factory-unit in Williamsburg, one of Brooklyn's northern neighbourhoods, the brewery offers a wide variety of beers based around its star product, Brooklyn Lager. The range includes the well-hopped East IPA, and a rich, caramel -flavoured Brown Ale, as well as Blast!, Sorachi Ale and more. These classics are making waves in bottle shops on this side of the Atlantic. The brewery offers a beer for all seasons, and brews such as its Summer Ale and Black Chocolate Stout will please, whatever the weather. Finally, large-format 75cl bottles Local 1, Local 2 and Sorachi Ace will complement your meal beautifully.And these beers are now no strangers to restaurant tables either.

Yet more proof of Brooklyn's excellence is the BQE: Brewmaster's Quarterly Experiment, in which experimental beers brewed for limited period and aged in casks. Only a lucky few ever get the chance to taste them. These exceptional beers are distributed sparingly.
