"In movies, special effects make you think you're seeing the unbelievable. In Brooklyn Special Effects, we're making you taste something incredible: a delicious alcohol-free beer. Brooklyn Special Effects is a hoppy lager with an unexpected piney aroma and pleasantly bitter finish. The beer gets its golden, bready sweetness from dry-hopping with Citra and Amarillo hops-- a technique rarely used in alcohol-free brewing. We use a specially developed fermentation method that limits the amount of alcohol that is created, while allowing more traditional beer flavors to develop. It tastes just like a regular beer, but therein lies the special effect: it's not.
We're beer people. We genuinely believe that humanity's favorite beverage belongs almost everywhere and at almost any occasion. But the more we thought about those "almosts," the more moments seemed to beg for a great beer but not necessarily the attendant buzz. Being beer people, we decided that it was time to explore one of brewing trickiest corners: alcohol-free beers.
We wanted to brew a beer for more places, more occasions, and more people. A beer that could take on midday lunch breaks, work happy hours, pre-workouts, watching the kids, very late nights, and more."
