"In Williamsburg, Brooklyn, we forge barley malt and hops from Germany, aromatic raw sugar from Mauritius and yeast from Belgium into our latest beer, Brooklyn Local 1. Behind the full golden color you'll find an alluring aroma, a dynamic complex of flavors, Belgian flair, Brooklyn fortitude and a dusting of our special yeast. To create this beer, we use the old technique of 100% bottle re-fermentation, a practice now rare even in Europe. It gives this beer a palate of unusual depth. Enjoy it locally or globally, as an apéritif or with your favorite dishes." —brewer
"Brooklyn went to great lengths for this beer: custom bottles and 100 percent re-fermentation in the bottle is definitely more cost than most brewers even want to think about. Pours a beautiful glowing gold with scores of small bubbles racing to the top. The clarity is stunningly clear from a gentle pour into bulbous tulip glasses. The head is amazing; a dense plateau forms as the glass cradles the lace stickage. Yeasty nose, with a refined tropical fruit aroma of pineapple, mango and papaya. Clean yet estery, the aroma grasping for the best of both worlds. Huge rolling effervescence feigning a viscous mouthfeel, giving way to a moderate body with a very active but refined carbonation. Dry malt character kicks things off with a complex graininess; the yeast flavor settles in quick with fruity overtones and warming esters. Alcohol is mostly mellow, but more warmth comes through toward the end of the glass. Watery resin-y hop bitterness exposes a faintly herbal woody flavor. More fruitiness from middle to end, with more mild alcoholic esters coming forth.

"Hands down the best Belgian Style Ale brewed in the US to date. All other American brewers that are thinking about brewing Belgian Style Ales need to take notice. A lobster roll on a grilled bun with a side of shoestring fries and mayo is the ultimate pairing." —BeerAdvocate Magazine

"Hazy golden amber color. Interesting aromas of banana pie, spice and herbs with a dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a long, honeyed fruit, root vegetable, and herbal hop finish. Very elegant and balanced; pair with cheese and cured meats." —Beverage Testing Institute
