Serving Suggestions

Brooklyn Special Effects Alcohol Free Lager Serving Suggestions:

  1. Temperature: Serve the beer chilled, ideally between 4-6°C. This temperature enhances the refreshing taste and allows the malt and hop flavours to shine through.
  2. Glassware: Use a clean, dry glass, preferably a lager or pilsner glass. These types of glasses have a tapered shape that helps maintain the beer's carbonation and enhances the aroma.
  3. Pouring: Tilt the glass at a 45-degree angle and slowly pour the beer, straightening the glass as it fills. This technique creates a good head, which enhances the aroma and flavour.
  4. Occasions: Enjoy Brooklyn Special Effects at social gatherings, picnics, barbecues, or any event where you want a refreshing, alcohol-free alternative. It's a versatile choice that pairs well with a wide range of dishes.

By following these serving suggestions, you can fully appreciate the crisp and hoppy flavour of Brooklyn Special Effects - American Non Alcoholic Lager.

About Brooklyn Brewery

Brooklyn Logo

In the vibrant heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, the dream of two beer enthusiasts, Steve Hindy and Tom Potter, took flight in 1987 with the birth of the Brooklyn Brewery. The now-iconic logo, designed by the legendary Milton Glaser, became a symbol of this craft beer adventure.

In 1988, the brewery introduced its flagship brew, Brooklyn Lager, which captivated New Yorkers with its hoppy grace and malty charm. Over the years, the brewery expanded its offerings, enchanting taste buds with brews like East India Pale Ale, Brown Ale, and Black Chocolate Stout.

Responding to the growing demand for healthier options, Brooklyn Brewery ventured into non-alcoholic brews, creating the remarkable Brooklyn Special Effects. This non-alcoholic beer offers a zesty grapefruit aroma and a clean, bitter edge, perfect for health-conscious beer lovers.

Today, the Brooklyn Brewery's enchanting brews have crossed oceans, reaching over 30 countries and inspiring a new generation of craft beer adventurers. As a pioneer of the American craft beer movement, the brewery's tale of passion and innovation continues to unfold.
