The Brewery has never had so many beers available in so many places. At last count, Brooklyn beers can be enjoyed in 25 states and 20 countries. At Brooklyn Brewery, we're as fond of the seasons of the Northeast as we are of the beers that accompany them.
"Good people drink good beer." In 1990, George Stranahan founded the Flying Dog Brewpub in Aspen, Colorado. From that brewpub to a full-fledged Denver brewery in 1994, and then to our current state-of-the-art brewing facility in Frederick, Maryland, Flying Dog continues to make sense, and embraces the tradition of brewing good beers for good people.
Harpoon Brewery was founded in 1986 in Boston, MA - the first company to obtain a permit to manufacture and sell alcohol in Massachusetts in over 25 years. Harpoon has played an important part in the rebirth of the microbrewery system in the United States. The brewery is best known for its India Pale Ale and also brews multiple other year-round beers including Dark, UFO Hefeweizen, UFO Raspberry Hefeweizen, UFO White, Leviathan IPA, Rich & Dan's Rye IPA, and Boston Irish Stout.
The Magic Hat Brewery has been putting a performance into every bottle of beer since 1994. Today, the brewery cranks out 400 bottles of beer every minute. Magic Hat brews four year-round beers and several seasonal products and one-off batches.
Spoetzl Brewery, the oldest independent brewery in Texas, is the maker of Shiner Bock since 1909, and currently produces nine beers year round and four seasonal brews per year. Their brews are sold in 48 states, with a goal to be in all 50 by the end of 2014.
