Available for in-person-only purchase at The Brooklyn Brewery Company Store is the new Brooklyn Box Set, featuring one copy of The Oxford Companion to Beer signed by Garrett Oliver, and one 750ml bottle-conditioned version of The Companion Ale. This special Companion Ale bottle is only available as part of the box set. Not available anywhere else. This is a truly limited edition.
Here's the catch: Because the box set contains beer, we cannot ship it. It can only be obtained in person at The Brooklyn Brewery, 79 North 11th Street, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY, during our public hours—Fridays, 6-11pm, Saturdays and Sundays, 12-6pm. Can you buy it online and pick it up at the brewery? No. Sorry. You have to come to the brewery in person and buy it there. You will not be able to add it to your shopping cart.
With 160 experts covering more than 1,100 subjects, The Oxford Companion to Beer is the most comprehensive book to yet be published on the subject. To accompany the book, Garrett Oliver (editor-in-chief), Horst Dornbusch (associate editor) and Thomas Kraus-Weyermann (writer and master maltster) brewed our current Brewmaster’s Reserve beer, called The Companion Ale. Made with 55% new floor malts from Weyermann Maltings, The Companion is brewed in an old style called “wheat wine,” a wheat-based equivalent to barley wine.
