Brooklyn Brewery makes one of my favorite brown ales (only second to Legend Brewing from Richmond, Va – of course). The Brooklyn Brown is a little chocolaty without being overly sweet. It’s a good staple to have in your beer fridge, especially if you’re a fellow brown ale lover! This particular brewery does make some other beers I like; they have a great Oktoberfest and a yummy Black Chocolate Stout.
I have to say, even though I love Pale Ales, theirs isn’t my favorite. I think it may be their use of Willamette Hops, which are a little too “grapefruitty” for my taste.
Give Brooklyn Brewery a try though, they have a great variety!
