This bottle-conditioned beer clocks in around 9% ABV, and will be available with labels from four different Brooklyn artists from now until May. More

10 Great Imperial Stouts To Try Right Now

Drinks Jonathan Moxey 14 comments

If you want to try Black Tuesday, Kate the Great, Sexual Chocolate, Dark Lord, Surly Darkness, or a number of other great "cult" imperial stouts, you should probably prepare yourself for the possibility of waiting in line on release day, trolling Internet forums looking for trades, buying lottery tickets in hopes of winning a chance to buy a bottle, or paying incredibly inflated prices on eBay. But rest assured, there are plenty of top-tier imperial stouts available that require a lot less hoop-jumping to snag a bottle. More

Super Bowl Beer Showdown: New York vs. Boston

Drinks Orr Shtuhl 12 comments

If I'm going to park on a couch all night and watch two teams I was raised to hate, the beer selection had better be up to the task. So in the spirit of sport, we've pitted the Super Bowl cities in a brawl of the brews to see who would come out on top if the best beer town took home the trophy. More

Beer History: Manhattan Brewing Company, A Lost Craft Beer Pioneer

Drinks Lisa Grimm 4 comments

Not too long ago, New York City was a difficult place to find good fresh beer. A British expat tried to change that in the mid-1980s, and he succeeded for a time, though his pioneering brewpub is nearly forgotten today. Richard Wrigley teamed with a number of partners to convert a former ConEd substation into Manhattan's first functioning brewery since 1965, and the first post-Prohibition brewpub east of the Mississippi—and initially, things went well.

Serious Beer: American Saisons

Drinks Jonathan Moxey 10 comments

Of the 17 American-brewed Saisons we tried, some were malt-focused, others spiced, some herbed, funked, hopped up, and some were all of the above. The best Saisons we tried were dry, highly carbonated, and had a balanced bitterness. More

Serious Beer: Belgian Dark Strong Ales from American Breweries

Drinks Jonathan Moxey 9 comments

There are few beers as substantial—and full of such deep, complex flavors and aromas—as Belgian Dark Strong Ales. These beers aren't to be approached lightly. The first sip demands your full attention, though subsequent sips may cause you to lose your train of thought completely. More

Scooped: Brown Ale and Buckwheat Honey Ice Cream

Serious Eats Ethan Frisch 5 comments

A few weeks ago, Guerrilla Ice Cream (my mobile ice cream project) was approached by fashion designers Shipley & Halmos about doing a New York City-themed flavor for Fashion's Night Out, a city-wide fashion event taking place today. As a native New Yorker, I jumped at the chance to capture the flavor of the greatest city in the world in ice cream form. I decided on a deep, complex, and just-a-tad spicy Brown Ale and Buckwheat Honey Ice Cream, topped with roasted chestnuts (hat tip to the chestnut vendors of old New York) and apple chips (it is the Big Apple, after all).

Chatting Chocolate Stout with Brooklyn Brewery Brewmaster Garrett Oliver

Sweets Liz Gutman 4 comments

Ah, St. Patrick's Day—the color green, pinches, and parades. But what on earth is a chocolate blogger to do on this, the drinkiest of holidays? Why, talk about chocolate stout, of course! I decided to ask Garrett Oliver, brewmaster at Brooklyn Brewery, to fill me in. And if for some reason you don't drink it all, try it in this Chocolate Stout Irish Stew recipe. More

A Pint With: Garrett Oliver, Brewmaster at Brooklyn Brewery

Drinks Maggie Hoffman 23 comments

Garrett Oliver has been brewing at the Brooklyn Brewery since 1994. He's known not only for his flavorful beers, but also for his eloquent writing on craft beer and his genius for finding delicious food and beer pairings. We're big fans of his book, The Brewmaster's Table, and were thrilled that he was willing to answer a few of our burning questions. More

Chocolate Beer

The concept of chocolate beer isn't new, but Sapporo's latest product, Chocolate Brewery, sounds darn tasty. It's made with Royce chocolates, a Japanese confectioner that looks good, but I can't read a thing on the website. Fortunately, I can read what's posted on japansugoi.com, which says the beer is only available from Sapporo until the 23rd of January. Boo on them. Luckily, there are lovely alternatives to Chocolate Brewery like Brooklyn Brewery's Black Chocolate Stout, which tastes like liquefied 70 percent cacao, carbonated into a heavenly treat. Another good brew is Sam Adams' Chocolate Bock, one of their extreme beers made with Scharffen Berger chocolate and has a rich body and smooth taste. Any other chocolate beers to note?... More
