New York's Best Local Beer
1. Brunt Pilsner
This exceptional beer is incredibly difficult to find. That's because it’s only available at Sixpoint in Red Hook, Brooklyn. A craft of their own creation, this beer uses fresh hops during the pre-fermentation boil. Grown just down the street of the bar, these hops are unprocessed and clean, making this golden ale unbelievably tasty.
2. Hop Lager
This special beer was created to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of KelSo Beer Co. This smooth drink is made to delight without a high alcohol content. Coming in at 5.5% ABV, you can enjoy a cup or two without over-doing it. This drink is available only while supplies last, so try it out before it's gone for good.
3. Imperial Pale Ale
The Bronx Brewery decided to flavor their standard Americanized pale ale with oak. Not only that, but they increased the alcohol content to 8.56%. A slightly stronger pale ale with a twist, this drink is meant to be enjoyed with friends. It is available only at the Bronx Alehouse, located in Bronx, NYC.
