Photos from Brooklyn Brewery's Concoction Release Party
Last week, the Brooklyn Brewery celebrated Garret Oliver's latest in his Brewmaster Reserve series, The Concoction. Based on the scotch cocktail "The Penicillin" this new offering combines peat smoked malt, minced ginger, lemon juice and wildflower honey to make for one unique drinking experience. Look for The Concoction to start hitting NYC area bars in Mid-June.
Head Brewmaster Garrett Oliver addresses the crowd and tells the tale of how "The Tonic" (The Concoction's original name) was rejected by the TTB and the mad scramble that occurred at the last possible minute. Cheers to bureaucracy!
CNN was also on hand to cover the event since they've been following Brewery founder Steve Hindy around. I was interviewed for a few minutes but I'm not sure it'll actually be used.

Also provided were the new cans of Brooklyn Summer Ale which we just featured in our Beertography of the Week last week.
