Brooklyn Brewery Releases Dark Matter, Plans New Brewhouse for Fall

Here’s something to tide you over while you await the summer release of Coney-themed Luna Lager. Brooklyn Brewery informs that it will release its latest Brewmaster’s Reserve on the week of March 22 (see below for a list of bars and restaurants that usually carry Brewmaster’s Reserve). It’s described as a “robust brown ale aged for four months in bourbon and rye whiskey barrels” that’s “full of caramel and chocolate flavors heightened by vanilla-like oak notes and hints of the barrels’ previous tenants” (some of the barrels were previously used for the Manhattan Project brew). So how’s the brewery’s expansion going? We’re told it just purchased the requisite equipment from German manufacturer Rolec, which also helped in Stone Brewing Co. of San Diego’s expansion. It’ll take six months to build and one month to ship, and the new brewhouse should be installed in October.
