Walked in here on a Sunday afternoon and was able to go on the free beer tour (which lasts about half an hour). Killed some time (we had to wait 2 more tours before we were able to go on ours) and enjoyed some beers. $5 gets you a token (which is one beer) but if you want to drink more, definitely go for the 5 tokens which cost $20 ($4/beer which is a better bang for your buck). There were lines to get the tokens and then another line for the bar but it moved very quickly. 


This place reminds me of a biergarden (smaller - but still very spacious overall). It was difficult to find a table to sit at initially but once a new tour was starting, it was much easier to grab a spot. They had 10 different beers on tap. I enjoyed a Sorachi Ace and The Unsung Hero. Both were really tasty and cost a token each. I highly suggest trying the Unsung Hero because during our tour, our guide let us know that it only served this beer exclusively at the Brewery Tasting Room. If you want to get really buzzed you should probably try the Tripel Smash. However it is the only beer that will cost you 2 tokens and that's probably because its 9.1% abv. 


Our tour guide was excellent - super energetic and very knowledgeable. The staff was also wonderful and very friendly. Brooklyn Brewery is solid spot if you just want to relax and chill out on a weekend. I had a great time! Definitely check it out if you are in Williamsburg.

Visiting Brooklyn Brewery is one of my favorite New York weekend activities. The tour is nothing to write home about: the facility is very small and these days the bulk of their brew production is handled outside the five boroughs. A personable guide will walk you over to a small area to the side of the entrance where you can see some of the brewing equipment and talk you through the basics of beer brewing. The only real reason to join the tour is if you answer a trivia question correctly at the end of the tour, they may give you some free beer tokens for the tap room. However, the tap room is the real draw for me. Super casual, beer hall-style layout, the tap room is a fun spot to spend a winter afternoon with friends. Bring games (I’m partial to Cards Against Humanity) and park it for an afternoon of great beer. Bonus? They provide take out menus and you can order in directly to the tap room!

One of my all time favorite beers and a fun place to stop to sample the Brooklyn brews you've come to know and love, as well as some new ones that you might not find on tap or in a six pack. First off, the brewery is super easy to get to. Only three stops from Union Square and a short walk from the Bedford Ave. stop in Williamsburg. The brewery offers tours of the facility but be sure to purchase a handful of tokens for beers in the tasting room. It's a loud beer hall with communal tables, but overall a fun atmosphere in a fun neighborhood. Worth the visit!
