Brooklyn Sorachi Ace

A unique hop for a unique saison. Brooklyn Sorachi Ace is a bright, citrusy saison built around the unique flavors of its titular hop. Originally developed in Japan decades ago, the Sorachi Ace hop brings a zesty lemongrass scent and complex citrus flavors. We've matched it up with clean Pilsner malt and playful Belgian yeast to build a highly aromatic beer with an herbal flavor and a crackling dry finish. Golden and unfiltered, Brooklyn Sorachi Ace glows in the glass and pairs wonderfully with seafood, fresh cheeses, and more. Go ahead, pour yourself some sunshine. Beef Profile: Malts: German 2-Row Pilsner. Hops: Sorachi Ace, Perle. IBUs: 34. Original Gravity: 15.7 degrees Plato. For information about tours and events, visit 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 Garrot 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 (at)BrooklynBrewery. ABV: 7.2%.
