According to Garrett Oliver, great beer is all about flavor. This book will show you how to match your favorite dishes with the world's most versatile beverage. In the late 1800's Brooklyn was one of the largest brewing centers in the country, home to more than 45 breweries. Lagers in the Vienna style were one of the local favorites. Our flagship brew - the award-winning Brooklyn Lager- is amber-gold in color, and displays a firm malt center supported by a fine bitterness and floral hop aroma. The aromatic qualities of Brooklyn Lager are enhanced by dry-hopping, the centuries-old practice of infusing the brew with fresh hops as it undergoes a long, cold maturation. The result is a wonderfully flavorful lager, smooth, refreshing and very versatile with food. From the most model picnics to the country's finest restaurants, Brooklyn Lager is enjoyed with everything from salads to steaks. Or, of course, by itself. - Garrett Oliver, Brewmaster.
