- In 1984, Associated Press correspondent Steve Hindy returned from a six-year stint in the Middle East and settled in Brooklyn's Park Slope neighborhood. Hindy had caught the homebreweing bug from diplomats stationed in Islamic countries like Saudi Arabia and Kuwait where alcoholic beverages were forbidden. With his downstairs neighbor, Tom Potter, Hindy quit his job and founded The Brooklyn Brewery in 1988. And thus their flagship brew, Brooklyn Lager, began its steady march to recognition as one of America's highest regarded beers. By 1996, with renowned traditional beer expert Garrett Oliver at the helm as Brewmaster, The Brooklyn Brewery brought brewing back to the once mighty brewing center of Brooklyn. Now in the middle of an expansion at our Williamsburg, Brooklyn facility, The Brewery is poised to continue to churn out some of the most creative and leading styles of beer in America.

Style: Dry Stout
- The Dry Stout is a very dark, roast and creamy ale. Dry Stouts (also known as Irish Stouts) were originally relatively strong, high gravity beers but today, the Dry Stout is the lightest of the Stout family and rarely attains an alcohol by volume (abv) of over 5%. The most well known example of this style is Guinness Draught.
The Dry Stout was originally an attempt to capitalize on the popularity of the Porter, which was very popular in England in the 19th century. The Dry Stout was originally stronger than a Porter, though that is rarely the case today.
