Beer in a bottle; what a concept

Local 1 is not a union organization.

Well, maybe it is in some places, but at the Brooklyn Brewery it's the name of the Belgian-style ale released yesterday.

It's not the sort of brew you pop open to have by yourself. It's 9% alcohol and sold in a 750ml champagne bottle. Which in itself is something different since the brewery usually makes its more complex brews available only on draft.

Says brewmaster Garrett Oliver, "We decided that it was time to start making these beers a bit more portable."
