with Treat

We don’t like to brag, but this is no ordinary Pilsner. It’s even won a few awards. From the Dutch for ‘minor stream’, the name is a nod to our flagship brewery in Brooklyn near the Gowanus Canal. Clean and aromatic, complex yet crisp. You don’t have to pronounce it to enjoy it.

German Pilsner Malt
Vliet comes from the Dutch for minor stream, which is what the Gowanus Canal would have been when New York was once called New Amsterdam. A hybrid of styles, the beer has the body of a Czech lager and the crisp balance of a German Pilsner. Pilsner began in 1842 in a small town called Plzeň, and has dominated the globe since. Vliet is our interpretation of the style.
