Brooklyn Brewery Gold Standard Export

It's that time again! A release of another new Brooklyn Brewmaster's Reserve beer. This time around Garrett Oliver and his team of excellent brewers are unleashing Gold Standard Export Kellerbier. Kellerbier? For those of you that are unfamiliar, Kellerbier is an unfiltered German style that is literally translated as "cellar beer".
Garrett hoists his stein to celebrate the release of Gold Standard.
Brooklyn's version of a Kellerbier is being referred to as their "Gold Standard Export" and is made with 100% floor malted Bohemian barley and flanked by effervescent Halllertau and Saaz hops. At 6.2% ABV, this beer's got everything you want for a nice Summer day (or night). Bready, yeasty, wonderful hop aromas. You really can't go wrong. Why did they tack on "Export" at the end of the name you ask? Well, that's to denote the fact that the beer is more robust than your typical pilsner. Oh let's not forget one of the coolest and beer geekiest facts about Gold Standard: the yeast that seduced this beer was lent to Brooklyn Brewery by none other than New Glarus out of Wisconsin. You know, that brewery that everyone wants but is only available in Wisco?

Gold Standard will be hitting draught lines where you'd normally find the Brewemaster's Reserve series in the coming weeks, so be on the look out.

get your last pours of Mary's Maple Porter before it's gone! And definitely try Oishi if you ever stop by the brewery.
