In the late 1800’s Brooklyn was one of the largest beer brewing centers in the country, home to more than 45 breweries.
Lager in the “Vienna” style was one of the local favorites. It is amber-gold in color and displays a firm malt center supported by a refreshing bitterness and floral hop aroma. Caramel malts show in the finish. The aromatic qualities are enhanced by “dry-hopping”, the centuries-old practice of steeping the brew with fresh hops as it undergoes a long, cold maturation. The result is wonderfully flavorful, smooth, refreshing and very versatile with food. Dry-hopping is largely a British technique, which they’ve used to create an American original.
