Brooklyn Brewery IPA, East
American boldness, British manners. Brewed in New York. Plenty of IPAs will promise you the moon and the stars, looking to seduce you with words of smashing bitterness and hops everlasting. Actually, we're not here to blow you away with a lupulin cannon or strip the enamel off your teeth. East IPA is a clean, drinkable IPA that's packed with flavor and offers a bold balances, not a smack in the head. American hops soar in the bright piney aroma, while East Kent Golding hops bring the taste of stone fruits and firm bitterness from IPA's ancestral British home. Give our East IPA a try with some rich crab cakes or salmon, strike up a conversation with farmhouse cheddars, and find harmony alongside spicy dishes. East IPA's blend of tradition and exuberance sets the standard for hop-driven deliciousness. Beer Profile: Malts: 2-Row English Pale Ale, Wheat. Hops: East Kent Golding, Cascade, Willamette.

The Brooklyn Story: journalist Steve Hindy dodged bullets for six years in the Middle East in the late 1970s and 1980s. He returned to New York at the urging of his wife and two children in 1984 and settled in Brooklyn. Steve started brewing beer at home, a hobby he picked up in the Middle East from American diplomats working in strict Islamic countries where alcoholic beverages were forbidden. With his Brooklyn neighbor, Tom Potter, he quit his job and started Brooklyn Brewery, the first successful brewery in Brooklyn since Schaefer and Rheingold closed in 1976. Today, Brooklyn beers are sold in over half the United States and more than 20 countries around the world. Famed Brooklyn Brewmaster Garrett Oliver and his team brew an ever-growing portfolio of beers for every palate, that run the gamut from traditional to boundary-pushing. While in New York City, please plan to visit the Brooklyn Brewery and the company store. For more info on general public hours, tours, and private events, visit brooklynbrewery.com.
