Day 81 Drink: Brooklyn 2007 Monster Ale
Brooklyn Brewery is one of the east coast's best examples of a craft brewery that has made the transition from local microbrewer to regional force. It's great to find it on tap during visits to New York City and the brewery will be pouring at Citi Field this season during New York Mets games.
Brooklyn 2007 Monster Ale was a surprisingly fresh and crisp 10.3 percent alcohol by volume barleywine. Nice golden color with a thin white topping. The beer has a sweet floral aroma and warming flavor. There is a good level of malt to the base of the beer, with a touch of fruitiness around the edges.
