Location: Brooklyn, New York
Year Established: 1988
A top 20 brewer by sales volume in the U.S. and about to open a new brewery in Europe, Brooklyn is typically known for their mass-produced Lager, Brown Ale, and a few other top-notch brews. But it's when they experiment that they really produce something special. Garrett Oliver, a James Beard Award-nominated brewer, concocts original, unique, and full-flavored brews within the Brooklyn-based brewery. Their Silver Anniversary Lager, a doppelbock version of their flagship, is a fantastic example of this.
