Since their invention in the 1840s, Pilsener-style beers have become the world’s most popular style. With a nod toward the original Czech tradition, Summerfest is brewed to feature the best of Bohemian nature. Crisp, golden, dry and incredibly drinkable, Summerfest has a delicate and complex malt flavor and spicy and floral hop character—the perfect warm weather beer.
While Summerfest is complex enough to accompany any gourmet meal, it is also great at barbecues, picnics, or any time you want a smooth, refreshing beer. Assertive enough to stand up to spicy meats and sauces, its tangy hoppiness also goes well with the sharp, peppery bite of specialty mixed salad greens.
Elder Betty is a weisse-style wheat ale. It is hazy and unfiltered with a slightly bready maltiness along with a tart, berry flavor as a result of the addition of elderberries. It is a very refreshing beer for a lazy summer afternoon.
Light, tasty & full of character, our summer wheat ale is brewed with a combination of domestic and continental wheat and barley malts, lightly hopped & fermented with a Belgian wit yeast, resulting in a delightfully tangy & refreshing flavor.
This excellent unfiltered wheat pairs beautifully with sausage, pretzels with mustard, vegetable pate, Crab Lois and is perfect for brunch.
Brooklyn Summer Ale is a mondern rendition of the "Light Dinner Ales" brewed in England in the 40's. They were also called "luncheon ales" or even "family ales," because they were refreshing and flavorful without being too heavy. We brew Brooklyn Summer Ale from premium English barley malt, which gives the light-bodied, golden beer a fresh, bready flavor. German and American hops lend a light, crisp bitterness and a citrus/floral aroma, resulting in a berr with a very sunny disposition.
Excellent with salads, seafood, quiches and lightly spiced dishes. It's also great at lunch!
