I have always enjoyed Brooklyn Lager so when given the opportunity to visit the brewery I jumped at the chance. You can collect tickets on arrival to take the brewery tour (this is free) and whilst waiting for your tour time you can purchase tokens at the counter to exchange for one of the many Brooklyn beers and ales on...

I went here with friends whilst in NY and had to say if you like beer and socialising this is the place to go. Inside the brewery they have a cool gift shop with tours available (unfortunately we couldn't get onto one) and they have a bar inside serving discounted pints. You get a cool token that equates to a... More

Being a beer enthusiast, BB is a mandatory visit when in NYC. Nice atmosphere, not too crowded (at least when arriving early) on a Saturday afternoon. Good selection of pale and dark beers. Cheers! :D

Sorry I meant smashing tour but did get slightly smashed. We should have done this tour years ago but always had children with us. The two gents running the tour were extremely knowledgeable about the makings of the beer but also the history of the brewery. We got to taste several of the beers they had at the bar and... More

Decided to visit the beer hall after passing earlier in the day. Great place, great beers , great atmosphere. Sat at a table with some locals and they were so friendly. Gave us dinner tips and other ideas for our stay. Would have been 5 stars if they had a wine option for my wife. Other than that it was... More

What is not to like about beer? This place literally uses beer tokens. With a very 'industrial' style beer hall you have you chance to purchase tokens and redeem them for locally brewed beer. We tried two - both very good. We also did the free 'tour' of the brewery. This is basically a stroll into two of the brewing... More

Booked the small batch tour and were not disappointed. Staff were very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. First thing was a tasting master class and in all we tasted four different beers, each one completely different. We then went on the tour, as others have said all breweries are the same so nothing that we didn't already know or have seen... More

Visited on a Saturday for the free tour. Really well organised with great staff. The beer is excellent and the tour was really interesting.

This is a surprisingly great place to visit. On a Saturday, be there by noon or 12:15 at the latest, in order to beat the crowds. You'll be offered a ticket to the (first of the day, 1pm) tour if you're early (it is free). You can buy drink tokens, $5 each of 5 for $20. You will get a... More

Staff was rude with the exception of bartenders. Not a friendly laid back brewery like Vermont breweries. Way too commercial.
