Brooklyn Lager ( Brooklyn, NY )

Brooklyn Lager, the Brewery's flagship label, is New York's "hometown" beer, brewed to a pre-Prohibition recipe that dates back to the days when Brooklyn was the brewing capital of the East Coast. Brooklyn Lager has won numerous awards and was named World Champion Amber Lager by the Beverage Testing Institute in Chicago in 1994. In 1996, a panel of judges comprised of brewers and industry experts named the brand, "Best Craft Lager in America."
