Details

Their first venture into the world of sour ale, a beer of this style is always going to divide opinion and so it should. Straight up with notes of sherbert lemon and ripe peach, this is a beer that you will be telling all your mates about! Beautifully sharp on the tongue, this is lovely and refreshing and a great palate cleanser. This fades to a subtle tart finish that leaves you wanting more. Crisp, sharp and superb – what more could you want?

Brewery Info

Originally one of America’s foremost brewing centres thanks to its large German population, the last Brooklyn-based brewery closed in 1976 in the face of overwhelming competition from bigger Midwest breweries and consumer preference (at the time) for light pilsner beers.

Brooklyn resident Steve Hindy made it his mission to reignite brewing in the area, and in 1984 founded Brooklyn Brewery with the goal of bringing good beer back to New York City. Now headed up by Brewmaster, beer author and all-round beer icon Garrett Oliver, Brooklyn Brewery has become an international beacon for good beer.
