A big brewery. Painful to have to wait in line to buy tokens and then to get in another line for beer. Crowded but a good place to go at least once

Visited during a trip in NY, cool place when the weather is hot to have a beer, nice local choices. A bit noisy and crowdy at some times but this is a brewery. As tourists, we bought t-shirts and glasses ^^

A large beer house that is missing the point. Tokens and plastic cups, no tasters just make this a miss off the bat. The hard part about this review is the incredible one off beers that were superb. I am truly torn.

Surprisingly big brewery . Didnít take the tour, but visited for a few beers nevertheless . The atmosphere is a lot like a festival . Beers out of plastic cups ( questions rise about how I can respect a beer if the brewery itself doesnt respect it ?? ) , big spacious garden-style tables , Music from speakers sounding like a garden-fest as well . I kinda liked the atmosphere , but it comes across very big , commercial inspired . Not sure wether it is positive or negative to me . Its interesting nevertheless . Prices were to high , given the fact its the brewery itself , everything was 5 $ , specials even 10 . Also , you had to buy tokens , and even though there is no real service ( order at the bar ) they specifically asked tips as well . A special beer costs 12 $ likes that , which is simply too much to drink something at the source ... Comes across very touristic . Also , with a brewery that has so many beers, Youíd expect more than 8 beers to try ...

Went on an off day, got a tour from a friend working there, and hung out a bit with a tour and tasting that was going on. Great space, lots of great beers available, people working there know their stuff, and the tour guide for the other group was very informative and funny. Great place.

Long lines, you need to buy tokens in the front rather than just paying for a beer at the counter, and often overrun with obnoxious Brooklyn hipsters, but still a pretty fun place.

Hipsters are taking over the beer scene! Have always loved coming here, but recently it has been getting harder to deal with the crowd. Great beer, and a nice concept of purchasing wooden tokens for beer. Get in early, and donít even think of trying to get a table....

Brooklyn Brewery is located on N 11th in Brooklyn not too far from the river. The large brick building has multiple access points from outside.

The entrance for the brewery tours opens to a waiting area with a small merch booth and a view of pretty much the entire brewery. There is a large beer garden with picnic tables and bar adjacent to it. Interesting art installations in the beer garden, with a walk up bar that has a large chalkboard behind it listing all the beers. There is a cooler behind the bar as well with bottled offerings.

The brewery has 10 or 11 draught offerings, with a few standard Brooklyn beers like East IPA, Blast! and of course the Lager. Some more rare and seasonal stuff like Hammarby Syndrome, Sun Donít Shine, 1/2 Pils and 1/2 Ale during my visit. The beers were all above average.

Service at the merch booth, during the tour and at the bar was all good. These people are obviously passionate about the brand and everyone was friendly and answered questions. My colleague and I lucked out and got the last two openings for the tour we took, and I understand the place gets crazy during peak times but we didnít have to wait to use any of our tokens.

This place does not serve food to my knowledge.

All in all, brewery tours are pretty much the same everywhere but Brooklyn does a great job all around and I would definitely visit again on future visits to NYC.
