Actor Adrian Grenier, who's best known for playing Vincent Chase on HBO's Entourage, launched his own beer called Churchkey. The new brew recently made its East Coast debut at Brooklyn Sandwich Society, which is located on Dekalb Avenue in Fort Greene.
Churchkey, which comes in a throwback flat-topped can with no pull tab, was co-founded by Portland-based graphic designer Justin Hawkins and its name is derived from the device that's used to open it. The beer was first sold in Seattle and Portland earlier this year, and finally reached the East Coast when Brooklyn Sandiwch Society beer aficionado Camilo Dominguez experienced it at a tasting.
"We chose Churchkey because of its taste alone," Dominguez said. "It was pure luck that we are the first in Brooklyn to sell Adrian Grenier's beer."
