Ever heard of Brooklyn Monster? Besides the beer, Monster is actually a cat – and a famous one at that. Monster lived at the brewery on 79 North 11th Street for 13 years. He’s been on Animal Planet, Time Out New York, and more. Sadly, Brooklyn Brewery announced today that Monster has past away of kidney failure at age 13.
Monster quickly became one of the most photographed objects in The Brewery, and aside from possibly Brewmaster Oliver has posed with more Brooklyn fans than any other member of the team.
We encourage you to share your memories and pictures of Monster with us. It’s hard to imagine 79 North 11th Street without him.
Other famous beer animals include Olive aka – Smuttynose Brewing’s “Old Brown Dog” who died peacefully in 2007.
