Brooklyn Brewery Silver Anniversary Lager featuring labels by locals artists


To commemorate their 25th anniversary, Brooklyn Brewery enlisted four local artists to design labels for their Silver Anniversary Lager:

We are fortunate to be a part of the incredible cultural renaissance Brooklyn has enjoyed during the last quarter century. Four great Brooklyn artists whom we met along the way—Fred Tomaselli, Roxy Paine, Joe Amhrein and Elizabeth Crawford—have created special labels for our Silver Anniversary Lager beer. We are saluting our beginnings with a special doppelbock version of the Brooklyn Lager we introduced in 1988. This beer is re-fermented in the bottle and will taste great today or years from now. The original was inspired by the beers of 19th Century New York and Vienna.

Here are the specs for the beer, which we can’t wait to taste:
