Brooklyn Local 11


Formerly brewed at Brooklyn Brewery
Brooklyn, New York USA
Style: Belgian Strong Ale | Ratings: 5 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 9%
"Collaborative beers are excellent excuses for us to do some creative scheming with our fun and highly talented friends. So when our pals at Eleven Madison Park said they wanted to make a beer with us and our mutual friends at the Van Winkle Distillery, we said ’brilliant!’ Julian Van Winkle sent us two rare Pappy Van Winkle 20-year Bourbon barrels, and we filled them with our Brooklyn Brown Ale and Brooklyn Local 2. The beers each spent three months in these venerable barrels and then we re-fermented them in the bottle with Champagne yeast. Now they’ve emerged, beautifully transformed into Nine Pin Ale and Local 11. Nine Pin Ale features light chocolate and coffee notes underpinned by vanilla. Local 2 has become Local 11, an ethereal beer that shows off the floral notes from the oak. These are two of the most delicious beers we’ve ever made. We may have made them for ourselves, but we hope you enjoy them too." — Garret Oliver
