Brooklyn Winter Lager
Brooklyn Winter Lager is our answer to the heavy ales and stouts that emerge in wintertime. Though dark in color with a sturdy presence, our Schwarzbier-inspired lager layers notes of chocolate, roasted barley, and dark bread into a 5.6% ABV frame that finishes surprisingly light and pleasantly dry. Winter means different things depending where you live, but Brooklyn Winter Lager is ready for any chill.

The Brooklyn Brewery
Like our namesake borough, The Brooklyn Brewery is made up of a rich collection of characters from all over the world. In our Williamsburg home, these characters are dedicated to brewing and selling great beer and enriching the communities we serve. Together, these Brooklynites have assembled the skills needed to transform a home brewing hobby into an independent brewery with a brand that has become an international beacon for good beer.
Starting with our flagship Brooklyn Lager, the portfolio of Brooklyn Brewery has grown to a wide-ranging collection of beers, always keeping an eye to traditional brewing techniques, even as Brewmaster Garrett Oliver and his team seek to push the boundaries of beer. It’s now easy to find a smooth Brooklyn Lager, hoppy Defender IPA, tart Bel Air Sour or roasty Brown Ale in your favorite watering holes. BLAST!, East IPA, Sorachi Ace and Pilsner are standing by on shelves near you, ready to be taken to parties, barbecues or your favorite chair. Each season brings beloved seasonals like Brooklyn Summer Ale and Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout back to the shelves and taps, ushering in the joys of the changing weather. Big bottles of Local 1 and releases from our barrel-aged lineup are no strangers to restaurants and home-cooked meals alike. Push a little closer to the fringes and you may find yourself enjoying an extremely limited Brewmaster’s Reserve at a handful of bars, encountering a Ghost Bottle released from our barrel aging facility or stumbling upon a Tasting Room-only release from the BB R&D or Worshipful Company of Brewers series. Attend one of our beer dinners or special events and there’s honestly no telling what might come in your next glass, but you can count on it being delicious.
