In the fall of 2011, Bronx, New York saw the first brewery in 50 years – Bronx Brewery. One of New York’s smallest breweries has a focus you might not expect. Pale Ales.
For the last few years, Beer Street Journal has covered their releases, and today, a small care package from Bronx Brewery showed up at our office. It’s time to see what we’ve been writing about.
Bronx Pale Ale is the brewery’s flagship beer. Described as an English pale ale meets American hops. After tasting it – have to say we agree. If you were to mix the malt structure of an EPA with the aggressiveness of American hops, you have Bronx Pale Ale.
Our flagship: a bold American pale ale with an English backbone. Think driving a ’64 Mustang over London Bridge. This is the beer we drink when hanging out after a hard day at the brewery.
