Formerly brewed at Brooklyn Brewery
, New York
As the 19th century gave way to the 20th, brewers sought to produce beers that would appeal to the growing middle class. Many beers of the day were quite strong, and not considered suitable for the upwardly mobile family man and his wife. Light Dinner Ales sprung up both in the United States and England to cater to changing tastes. They were full-flavored beers, but brewed with less malt. They were considered a fine accompaniment to large meals, where a stronger beer might have been too filling. Post Road Light Dinner Ale is brewed from the finest European malts and seasoned with hops from the Pacific Northwest. It is gold in color, with a light bready flavor, snappy clean bitterness and bright hop aroma. A terrific beer with fish, shellfish, salads and summer foods.
