Brooklyn Fall Seasonals....
Brooklyn Post Road Pumpkin Ale...$8.99 / 6pk
Early American colonists, seeking natural ingredients for brewing ales, turned to pumpkins, which were plentiful, flavorful and nutritious. Blended with barley malt, pumpkins became a commonly used beer ingredient. Post Road Pumpkin Ale brings back this tasty tradition. Hundreds of pounds of pumpkins are blended into the mash of each batch, creating a beer with an orange amber color, warm pumpkin aroma, biscuity malt center, and crisp finish.

Malts: Canadian 2-row, Caramel malt, Belgian Aromatic
Additions: Dickinson pumpkins, and nutmeg. Contains wheat.
Alcohol by Volume: 5.0%
Brooklyn Brewery Oktoberfest....$8.99 / 6pk
When Crown Prince Ludwig of Bavaria wanted to celebrate his wedding engagement in 1810, he did what any good Bavarian prince would – he threw a beer festival. Both the festival and the special beer served there became known as Oktoberfest. Brewed from the finest German malt and hops, Brooklyn Oktoberfest is true to the original style, fullbodied and malty, with a bready aroma and light, brisk hop bitterness.
