Attention Stockholm – Here Comes Brooklyn Brewery

January 7, 2013

Williamsburg’s Brooklyn Brewery will be expanding to Sweden by year’s end according to a recent blog post. The company plans a brewery in Stockholm as part of a partnership and exchange program between Brooklyn, D. Carnegie & Co. and Carlsberg Sweden.

Brooklyn Brewery: If you’re wondering “why Stockholm?”… it begins with the mutual appreciation of beer, food, music, art and all around good culture shared by Brooklyn and Sweden (even leading some to ponder if Sweden is the new Brooklyn). Brooklyn Brewery has a long history with Sweden highlighted by the fun fact that Sweden is our largest export market and second biggest market overall (right behind NYC) thanks to our importer and partner in Stockholm brewery, Carlsberg Sweden. We used to distribute the seductively delicious Carnegie Porter in New York back in the day, and in 2011 we collaborated with Carlsberg to produce a bourbon barrel-aged version of this classic beer to celebrate the 175th anniversary of the Carnegie Brewery. And let us not forget about the BROOKLYN, SWEDEN music festival we launched last year that sent over 15 Brooklyn bands to Stockholm and Malmö. You could say it was just meant to be.

Brooklyn Brewery’s "Sorachi Ace" beer.

April 14, 2012
I’d had a taste of Brooklyn Brewery’s Sorachi Ace beer at Borough President Marty Markowitz’s presser for Dine in Brooklyn (indeed, several tastings, as the Brooklyn Brewery folks were kind about refilling my little cup as I went around tasting food), and I wanted to try it again. This afternoon I spotted it at Lassen & Hennigs, and decided it would be an interesting accompaniment to my temporary bachelor (my wife is at an archivists’ meeting in Cape May, New Jersey) dinner of Trader Joe’s barbecued pulled pork on a bun accompanied by a mixed green salad with tomatoes and mushrooms topped with T.J.’s sesame soy ginger vinaigrette dressing. Above is a photo of the impressive 25.4 fluid ounce bottle, with its Champagne-style cork.

Here is a closer photo of the label. “Sorachi Ace” is the kind of hops used in making the beer.

When I pulled the cork, there was a nice little “pop.” I made the mistake of pouring a bit too fast, which resulted in a huge head. After allowing it to collapse enough to pour more beer, I settled down to drink and eat. Here are my tasting notes:

Color: deep amber.

Head: big, creamy, long-lasting.

Aroma: citrusy, hoppy, with floral overtones.

Taste: rich, not overly bitter, toasty, suggestion of apricots in the finish. After I wrote those tasting notes, I did a web search for “sorachi ace hops” and got this. While the article stresses a lemony quality of the hops, the comment by Ben (scroll down) refers to ” a really creamy, cloying, buttery element” that seems to agree with my “rich” and “toasty.”

Bottom line: an interesting, well made beer that stands up to flavorful food like BBQ pork. It would also be good to savor on its own.
