Brooklyn special effects bottles are 0.4% ABV. in movies, special effects make you think you're seeing the unbelievable. with brooklyn special effects, we're making you taste something incredible: a delicious alcohol free beer. we wanted to brew a beer for more places, more occasions, and more people. a beer that could take on midday lunch breaks, work happy hours, pre-workouts, post-workouts, watching the kids, very late nights, and more. special effects is a hoppy lager with an unexpected piney aroma and pleasantly bitter finish. the beer gets its bready sweetness from a blend of pale caramel, and dark roasted munich malts, and its surprising nose from dry-hopping with mosaic, citra and amarillo hops - a technique rarely used in alcohol free brewing. it tastes just like a regular beer, but therein lies the special effect: it's not.
