Brooklyn Summer Ale is a modern rendition of the "Light Dinner Ales" brewed in England throughout the 1800s right up until the 1940s.
They were also called "luncheon ales" or even "family ales" because they were refreshing and flavorful without being too heavy.
We brew our Brooklyn Summer Ale from premium English barley malt, which gives this light-bodied golden beer a fresh bready
flavor. German and American hops lend a light, crisp bitterness and a citrus/floral aroma resulting in a beer with a very sunny
disposition. Excellent with salads, seafood, quiches, and lightly spicy dishes. It's also great at a brunch. (from Brooklyn Brewery)
