The Discreet Charm of the Framboise by Brooklyn Brewery in New York, United States

About The Discreet Charm of the Framboise by Brooklyn Brewery

"The Discreet Charm of the Framboisie" started as a base sour beer featuring barley malt, wheat, and spelt. This was then aged in Woodford Reserve bourbon barrels, each containing fifteen pounds of fresh raspberries. Finally, the beer was bottle conditioned with Brettanomyces lambicus and Champagne yeasts. The result is a sharp, dry, bombastic beer that is excellent with food.

Pair with fresh cheeses, garden salads, poultry, outdoor parties, light breezes on sunny days, venison sausage.


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