Brooklyn's Monster unleashed on city.

Tokyo may have its Godzilla, but Brooklyn has its own monster, namely the Monster Ale brewed at the Brooklyn Brewing Company.

This monster is the creation of celebrated brewmaster Garrett Oliver, who says he drew inspiration from the warming barleywines of England and the hoppy variations of the Pacific Northwest. "This is the strongest Monster we ever brewed," Oliver says. "It should fortify our customers for any Y2K problems they may encounter."

Oliver's Monster is made from floor-malted Maris Otter, Halcyon and Pipkin malts from East Anglia and spiced with aromatic Willamette, Cascade and Fuggle hops.

Oliver says the brew has an aroma "redolent of sherry", a warming and complex palate and 12.2% a.b.v. "After four months of conditioning, the Monster is ready," he confirms.
