Flagship February: Brooklyn Lager

February 6, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Flagship February is an idea from beer writer Stephen Beaumont. Throughout February we’ll be showcasing classic beer brands which are increasingly being passed over in an endless search for the newest, latest greatest thing on the menu. It’s a celebration of the early brands that helped pave the way for craft beer in our area.

Each Wednesday during #FlagshipFebruary we’ll be serving limited bottles of these inspirational beers. We’re also inviting representatives from each brewery to join us in our taproom; talking to the public about their flagship brews, and passing out a limited supply of brewery swag.

We’re kicking it all off with Brooklyn Lager from The Brooklyn Brewery.

  • 3-10PM: Beer served until sold out!
  • 5-7PM: Special Guest from Brooklyn Brewery

“I remember having this for the first time, also New Amsterdam Lager, and just being so impressed that a light, lager-style beer could have flavor—soft, rounded malt flavor—and still be crushable, low ABV, and come from a small company. Probably, I had it not too long after its debut. And then the hits just kept on coming! I love their East India Pale Ale, and the Black Chocolate Stout that was Garrett Oliver’s first recipe. And, I miss Monster, their barleywine; RIP Truly one of my inspiration breweries and beers.” – Ethan Cox, President of CBW

Join us on 2/6 to celebrate Brooklyn Lager, and save the dates for our upcoming flagship features:

Wednesday 2/13/19 Flagship February: Edmund Fitzgerald Porter
Wednesday 2/20/19 Flagship February: Flower Power IPA
Wednesday 2/27/19 Flagship February: Aviator Red with Tim Herzog

It’s all happening at 520 7th Street, just minutes from the Peace Bridge and Kleinhans Music Hall.

“More and more, people are choosing a beer based on novelty—or rarity—rather than taste. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but what sometimes gets lost in the ’special release’ noise are the beers that paved the way for today’s remarkable global beer market. So we’ve created #FlagshipFebruary. A month to celebrate not what’s next. But what’s first. The flagships. The originals.” – Stephen Beaumont
