The tour is short, but the founding members background makes for a great story. It's free too, or at least was when I was there. The whole token set up is a bit of a pain, making for two queues to get a beer. The...More

It is one of my favorite beers so I couldn't not visit the brewery while in New York. It is certainly worth popping by and enjoy a nice cold beer.

Even though they're worldwide now, the Brooklyn site still has its laidback microbrewery appeal. Beer tastes great and there's quite some variety of ales on tap. It's all locally brewed, so great taste guaranteed (cause barrels don't last long here).
