For part 9 of the Worshipful Company of Brewers program, in which members of the Brooklyn Brewery brewhouse staff are given carte blanche to brew a batch of their own making, Michael Steinschneider decided to lighten up a winter beer by darkening up a summer beer. Labeling his "Sun Don't Shine" a Strong Mild, he's basically taken the Brooklyn Summer Ale and tweaked it with some dark carafa malt and dry-hopped it with some hops known for producing a tropical character, including Motueka.
The result is a 4.9% ale that drinks like a hearty winter beer, but is actually light enough to drink two at a time, as Mike demonstrated when addressing the crowd assembled to congratulate and celebrate with him. The subtle chocolate notes and fruity/flowery hops also add intrigue to a very drinkable, satisfying beer.
Justin encourages the single fisted double quaff.
For when you're drinking more than one... at a time.
Sun Don't Shine will be available exclusively at the brewery's tasting room until supplies run out, so be sure to visit on a Friday night or weekend afternoon soon!

Always some tasty cheese at the WCofB releases.
