Pennant Ale

Fifty-eight years ago the Brooklyn Dodgers baseball team beat their arch-rivals, the New York Yankees, to win the 1955 Baseball World Series. To celebrate this famous victory Brooklyn Brewery created a special beer, Brooklyn Pennant Ale, a 5.0% abv Pale Ale. Today James Clay are pleased to announce that Brooklyn Pennant Ale will be available as a new permanent draught beer in the UK.

New York based Brooklyn Brewery created Brooklyn Pennant Ale as a celebratory product to mark the anniversary of the Brooklyn Dodgers winning the 1955 World Series in which they were awarded the traditional winners pennant. Brooklyn Pennant Ale, a Pale Ale, proved such a hit that Brooklyn Brewery decided to continue brewing the beer permanently and it now makes its way to the UK for the first time on draught.

Brooklyn Pennant Ale is a honey-coloured pale ale with a brisk malt palate and finely balanced hop character. It pairs wonderfully with a range of American classic foods – particularly Buffalo Hot Wings with a Blue Cheese Dip and the quintessential New York Slice (of Pizza).

On-trade enquiries are invited from establishments interested in being amongst the first UK outlets to stock this exceptional and iconic beer.
