Brooklyn Pennant Ale ’55

Brooklyn-Pennant-Ale-'55From the Brewer – As Brooklynites, we revere the memory of the 1955 World Champion Dodgers baseball team, so we had to name a beer in their honor. Brooklyn Pennant Ale is a honey-colored pale ale with a brisk malt palate and finely balanced hop character. Pennant is a traditional English-style pale ale. The pale ale style developed in the early 19th century, and was called “pale” because it appeared so in comparison to the darker ale styles of the day (East India Pale Ale was a stronger, paler, more bitter version of the style). Brooklyn Pennant Ale is brewed from Scottish Maris Otter malt, which is justly prized for its toasty, biscuity flavor and the round smoothness it imparts to beer. Our house ale yeast brings out an appetizing fruitiness and ferments to a dry finish. During 2005, Brooklyn Brewery will donate one dollar from every case of Pennant sold to the funding of the statue of Brooklyn Dodgers greats Jackie Robinson and Pee-Wee Reese planned for the Cyclones ballpark in Coney Island.”

Food Pairings: Brooklyn Pennant Ale is great with pizza, roasted and grilled meats, burgers, barbecue, robust fish, shellfish, falafel, crab cakes, and spicy food. Caramel malts lend it the ability to work nicely with steaks, but just as well with grilled vegetables. For cheese, pair up with Stilton and Gorgonzola Dolce.
