Release of Red Sumac Wit

  • Brooklyn Brewery 79 N 11th St Brooklyn, NY, 11249 United States (map)

In ancient times, the treasure values of ships were often largely made up not by precious metals or gems, but spices. Among the most prized was sumac, picked for its antioxidant-rich red berries. The berries were used medicinally in salves and tonic-like teas, and brought their lemony tang to many foods and even smoking tobacco blends. 

For Brooklyn Red Sumac Wit, our friend Lior Lev Sercarz, the famed spice blender, brought us the world’s finest sumac all the way from Turkey. The tart spice replaces the coriander most often used in Belgian wheat beers and joins barley malt, raw wheat and orange peel to create a zingy and refreshing libation. Red Sumac Wit is unparalleled with your favorite warm weather foods, from hummus and salads to fish tacos and grilled meats to all sorts of spicy dishes

Please join the Brooklyn Team for the release of our latest Brewmaster's Reserve!

Snacks provided by Sharwoods, Meat Hook/Brooklyn Kitchen, Martin's Pretzels, Tom Cat Bakery, Sir Kensington's, Ovenly, and SlantShack.
