My girlfriend and I hauled the Cleaners Pale Ale up to Greenpoint last night to a friends place. This extra pale ale was met with unanimous approval. One thought it rivaled Sierra Nevada’s pale ale, which, as a Californian born and raised, really means something. Our friend pictured was trying Gowanus brew for the first time and, as you can see, was amazed. Nobody was more impressed that I was, though.

I bottled the Cleaners almost a month ago and sampled the beer once a week since then to track its progress. To say I was worried the first, second, and even third week, would be an understatement. It was flat and boring. But last night, wow, it was like a new beer. The carbonation was fully developed. The flavors and aroma are suddenly interesting. And it was a pleasure to drink. I’m feeling much better about serving this stuff up at our Superbowl party next weekend.
