Brooklyn 1/2 Ale by Brooklyn Brewery in New York, United States

About Brooklyn 1/2 Ale by Brooklyn Brewery

Brooklyn Brewery 1/2 Ale hearks back to traditional farmhouse ales, which used to quench the thirst of farmhands and other laborers on hot sunny days. These saisons were complex yet clean, low in alcohol and high in refreshment.

Brooklyn Half Ale is an unfiltered, clean, and balanced saison, with a hazy, pale yellow pour. It packs a symphony of citrusy hops over a gentle malt base that clocks in at a pleasantly restrained 3.4% ABV.

Try it alongside fish, salads, fresh cheese and light pastries, or just keep it on hand for the end of a long day. After all, it only tastes like a big beer.

Pair with seafood, salads, spicy dishes, light pastries and fresh cheeses.


Once an intimidating stretch of old warehouses and rough streets, Brooklyn's Northside has grown around the Brooklyn Brewery to become a cultural destination.
