Brooklyn Pennant Ale '55

Ever sitting at home, watching baseball, and say "Man..I wish i could TASTE a sport right now!"? Yahtzee, dickhead. This 'merican ale brings the noise. You can taste the hot dogs, cigar smoke, and popcorn from every baseball game in each sip of this 5.0% ABV ale and you'll love every minute of it. A crisp, cool ale, this beer allows a generous consumption without the fullness a Brooklyn Brown would give. Caught it at bar price for 3.75 a bottle, so you're looking at about 10 bucks per 6er at real stores not in Pennsylvania. Perfect Sunday afternoon Pittsburgh Pirate game mind eraser.

Drinkability: 9/10
Taste : 9/10
Value: 7/10

Overall: 8.6/10

  1. Oh man, i do love myself a pale ale. i'll have to check it out. I'm not usually a fan of brooklyn brewery's stuff but if it's as good as you say it is.

    At first i thought this was a seasonal beer but it isn't. and fyi it is named for the 1955 brooklyn dodgers when they won the pennant.

    for you sportssss.
