Sixpack of the Week: Brooklyn Insulated

Brooklyn Brewing (Brooklyn, N.Y.)
Dark lager

SIXPACK SEZ: Despite its name and release as a limited, cold-weather seasonal, this lager really deserves to be enjoyed year-round. Yes, it’s dark and warming and worthy of a fireplace snifter on a snowy night. But I could see cracking open bottles of this malty yet well-balanced lager and enjoying it in the heat of a summer bbq. It’s not too heavy and it’s roasty malt dries out with an almost fruity, surprisingly hoppy finish.
