From the city’s fine restaurants to the beloved tamale lady outside the Brooklyn brewhouse every morning, Mexican food is a staple of life in New York City. Brooklyn Naranjito was brewed with some of Brooklyn Brewery’s favorite dishes in mine. Brooklyn Brewery put the pop of citrus that graces some of their favorites into a beer with a helping of sweet orange peel in the brew kettle. The vivacious fruit lends a burst of juiciness, a fresh, ticklish aroma and a decidedly refreshing finish to this American pale ale. It’s amazing what a little orange (naranjito) can do.
Brooklyn Naranjito is a classic American pale ale pushed a tiny bit further. An extra burst of aromatic hops and a sizable helping of sweet orange peel create just the right pop of citrus. It elevates your favorite meals, brightens spices, and proves what a little orange can do. available for a limited time.
