(Brooklyn, NY) – The Brooklyn Brewery’s fastest growing seasonal beer is for the first time available in cans. Purchasable as a compact 12-pack, lightweight and more easily recycled than bottles, canned Brooklyn Summer Ale is the perfect companion for summertime activities.
To celebrate the release of Summer Ale in cans, The Brewery is holding a series of Summer “CANibalization” Parties at three NYC venues on Thursday, May 19 from 7-10pm featuring $3 cans of Summer Ale and merch giveaways: Good Co. in Williamsburg (10 Hope St), with complimentary grass-fed hot dogs from The Meat Hook; Pub One DUMBO (5 Front St); and The Hill in Murray Hill (416 3rd Ave).
Brooklyn Summer Ale is a modern rendition of the “Light Dinner Ales” brewed in England throughout the 1800’s right up until the 1940’s. They were also called “luncheon ales” or even “family ales”, because they were refreshing and flavorful without being too heavy. Brooklyn Summer Ale is brewed from premium English barley malt, which gives this 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 beer with a very sunny disposition.
