We visited on a cold Sunday afternoon and received a friendly welcome at the entrance and offer of a free tour which was due to start in a short while. It was no hardship to sample a couple of the beers whilst waiting for it. Loved the tokens for buying beers - five tokens for $20 gets you 5 beers.... More

Quick subway ride from Manhattan for a tour of the brewing room and some good quality beer drinking. The building is about 4-5 blocks from the subway stop and the building is easily identified by the paintings and signs on the outside. When you walk in you are greeted by an employee asking if you want to take a tour... More

Get there early on a Saturday (between 12-1) and you will get a place on the free your every half hour. Well worth doing and you can sample loads of beers on taps before/after too! Brilliant!

Took the 'small batch' brewery tour last week while on a 21st birthday trip to NY from the UK for my son. Really fun evening. Not so of an actual 'tour' , but a lot of time spent at the bar sample several of their brews and listening to our tour hosts talking about all aspects of craft brewing ,... More

I visited Brooklyn Brewery with a friend at the weekend. The tour is available both Saturdays and Sundays, I would recommend going early afternoon as the queues are quieter earlier on. Both the entry and tour is free and the beers are $5 for one or $20 for 5...very reasonable as they offer a variety of their latest flavours. The... More

I visited the Brewery with a friend on a Saturday. We arrived early around 1pm and had no queues but when we left at 4pm the queue was right down the street. We were very impressed that the tour and entrance were both free. All staff were helpful and friendly especially the tour guide who was extremely knowledgable. Drink tokens... More

Came on a mid-week tour and tasting with my partner. Not a beer drinker myself but still had a great time! Staff were all great; friendly and knowledgable. Will the bartender really stood out, he is a credit to the company and so helpful and added a touch of humour to the tour. He even found a beer that I... More

Never imagined to treat with a problem like that. At the beginning, the staff seem to be so aggressive with the costumers in general, pushing them to be attended at the gift store, with no explainings and no kindness. Garrett Oliver should be disappointed if he watched his product being sold like this. Me and my wife were complaining of... More
