Description 

In Williamsburg, Brooklyn, Brooklyn Brewery forges barley malt and hops from Germany, aromatic raw sugar from Mauritius and yeast from Belgium into their latest  beer, Brooklyn Local 1. Behind the full golden color you’ll find an alluring  aroma, a dynamic complex of flavors, Belgian flair, Brooklyn fortitude and a dusting of their special yeast. To create this beer, we use the old technique of 100% bottle re-fermentation, a practice now rare even in Europe. It gives this beer a palate of unusual depth. Enjoy it locally or globally, as an aperitif or with your favorite dishes.
