We know what you’re thinking. You think we’ve lost our minds. “Main Engine Start”? That’s okay – no worries – but actually we haven’t lost anything at all. We just gained a new brewery here in Brooklyn. A few months ago, we busted through the brewhouse wall into another building and expanded our fermentation cellars. Now we’ve just finished installing a big shiny new set of German brewhouse equipment. Over the coming years, we’re going to brew you a lot of fun new beers on this baby. First, though, it’s time to rev this whole thing up and get it humming. The first beer out of our new brewhouse is Brooklyn Main Engine Start, a burnished gold ale in the rare “Abbey Singel” style, reminiscent of the un-filtered beers that Trappist monks make for themselves. It’s dry and biscuity on the palate, with a lilt of spicy Belgian yeast character and a snappy hop bite. Judicious dry hopping with Slovenian Aurora hops lends an appetizing herbal note. It’s tasty enough to stick with for the whole evening, and at about 6% ABV, it won’t have you tripping over snow banks after just one. We know it’s winter and you might have been expecting something heavy and dark, but right now we’re just not in a heavy and dark mood. In fact, we’re feeling pretty cheerful, and we want to celebrate with a bunch of our friends and a few pints of beer. If you’re in the neighborhood, stop by during our tour hours and see the new brewery. If you’ve seen the brewery before, you’ll be amazed what we’ve done with the place. It’s cold outside – stay a while. We’re going for Main Engine Start. Main Engine Start stats: MALTS: British two–row, British Crystal Malt, Belgian Aromatic Malt, American “Honey” Malt. HOPS: German Perle, British East Kent Golding, Slovenian Aurora YEAST: Our special Belgian strain ABV: 6.2%

    I'm crackin' eggs of wisdom. .. Pours a light brown with white low fluff .. . aroma of yeast and sugar .. . basic but enjoyable, leaves a nice aftertaste .. . decent but at 6.2, not quite the session i was hoping for .. . to be or not be, that always confuse me..
