New York City Beers to try

If you only had time for ONE New York City brewed beer, you should try

Brooklyn Bel Air Sour
by Brooklyn Brewery

Why Brooklyn Bel Air Sour?

Lead by our James Beard Award-winning Brewmaster, Garrett Oliver, our brewers put their collective minds together to conjure up one tasty magic trick—a thrilling jolt of tartness up front opens onto a riot of tropical fruit, courtesy of our lacto, our ale yeast, and a generous helping of Amarillo dry-hopping. Soft barley and wheat malts keep things dry and refreshing, and the whole thing comes together to close with a fine dry finish. Brooklyn Bel Air Sour is racy and maybe even a little bit dangerous, but also effortlessly cool, breezy, and undeniably compelling. Pair with sorbets, fruit, classic car design, grilled chicken, throwbacks, snapbacks, snappy comebacks, seafood, goat cheeses, loud shirts, margherita pizzas, and style.
