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!
