Brooklyn Post Road Pumpkin Ale
Early American colonists, seeking natural ingredients for brewing ales, turned to pumpkins, which were plentiful, flavorful and nutritious. Blended with barley malt, pumpkins became a commonly used beer ingredient. Post Road Pumpkin Ale brings back this tasty tradition. Hundreds of pounds of pumpkins are blended into the mash of each batch, creating a beer with an orange amber color, warm pumpkin aroma, biscuity malt center, and crisp finish.

The Brooklyn Brewery
Like our namesake borough, The Brooklyn Brewery is made up of a rich collection of characters from all over the world. In our Williamsburg home, these characters are dedicated to brewing and selling great beer and enriching the communities we serve. Together, these Brooklynites have assembled the skills needed to transform a home brewing hobby into an independent brewery with a brand that has become an international beacon for good beer.
Among our team is Garrett Oliver, a prolific author and James Beard Award-winning brewmaster, and cofounder Steve Hindy, author and beer industry commentator. It’s more than just a collection of relevant résumés. That dapper brewmaster of ours is also a talented chef with an impressive collection of swords and pop culture witticisms, each sharper than the next. Our CEO first honed his sales skills selling metal mixtapes in Cairo as a teenager. Our technical director owns the upstate farm she grew up on, producing maple syrup and growing crops and the hops used in our Greenmarket Wheat. Our Warehouse & Logistics Manager closes his computer each day to go play in a Ween cover band. Our brewing and packaging teams include people who speak English, Arabic, Urdu, Spanish, Mandingo and French; all of them line up during early morning shifts to buy tamales from the back of Maria’s bicycle when she stops in front of the loading dock. We have musicians, actors, writers, crossword enthusiasts, directors, athletes, home chefs and scientists that converge in Williamsburg every day to work on one thing: making Brooklyn Brewery beer delicious, adventurous and available to all.
