Defender IPA by Brooklyn Brewery in New York, United States

About Defender IPA by Brooklyn Brewery

The Defender is constantly vigilant, standing guard over all those who dare to create, to dream, and to drink great beer. This bright, juicy, West Coast-style IPA takes on a reddish twist and features bold, fruity hop bitterness and an intensely resinous nose, leading the way into a dry finish that blazes the trail for your next sip.

But who is this mysterious hero? The Defender takes to the skies of Brooklyn, clad in a homemade mech suit, to protect us from blandness. She is armed only with bold red malts and explosively juicy hops, yet emerges victorious. Wherever beer drinkers need a hero, the Defender will arise, guarding the rooftops and alleyways in the name of delicious beer.

Brooklyn Defender IPA was forged in collaboration with our sidekicks at New York Comic Con as the official beer of the convention.

Pair with spicy foods, Mexican dishes, robust cheddars, tinkering, and art.

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