It gets super crowded with a Manhattan crowd. But the price is good and you can’t get more fresh BK beers than here. Usually something not on the regular six pack line-up is pouring. It’s like a real beer hall except you can see portions of the brewery. Not a bad place to start early before it gets crowded.

It is no frills but a decent place. Bartender was very friendly and hooked us up. It got insanely crowded but was alright when I first got there a little after noon,

TURDFERGUSON  (153) Durham, North Carolina | April 22, 2012
Visited on a Saturday afternoon with some old college buddies. Got very crowded soon after we arrived. Didn’t take a tour. Lots of picnic tables, you can bring your own food in there, and they even had a few new beers on tap. Beers are reasonable at 5 bucks a piece but kind of annoying that they have 3 separate lines (one to get in, one to get tokens, and then another to get your beer).

Pretty cool place. Doors open at 6 you get 2 beer tokens for $10 or 5 for $20. The place has a pretty cool crowd and a nice atmosphere. The selection is not that great but I wasn’t expecting anything to crazy. It gets very crowded.

Fun stop. Went by on Sunday. Good tour, friendly hosts. A decent selection of their beers. Good value. Some interesting information learned on the tour: only the kegged beer and 750s come from this location, all the 12oz bottles are contracted out to FX Matt. They had some food vendors set up in the main reception hall. Good stuff. Worth going to if you are in Brooklyn. Can get pretty packed though.

I love the less hipstery vibe at the brewery, and the I love the space, but the selection is just underwhelming. It’s all the standard Brooklyn Brews, one or two special drafts and large format bottles. These are beers you can find all over NYC, so I don’t feel the need to go here to get them. The price is nice for NYC, but when I’m looking for good beer and food, this isn’t one of my first choices.

Scopey  (390) Croydon, England | September 21, 2011
Visited in March on a Saturday. Went on the tour, which was massively overcrowded and led by someone who had limited beer knowledge. Got bored and left before it was finished and hit the bar. The bar had a ok selection at decent prices, but like the tour it was massively busy. Atmosphere wasn’t great, really loud and sweaty. Unsurprisingly we left promptly and went back to Barcade.

Tillgängligt bryggeri på en bakgata Williamsburg, Brooklyn, gratis rundtur, billiga ölpoletter och möjlighet att prova fem stycken olika Brooklyn öl på enkla träbänkar.

Braudog  (701) Hampton, Virginia | August 21, 2011
August 2011. Made what turned out to be a 3-hour detour into the city just to visit Brooklyn on a Saturday afternoon. Although I have had all their beers, I’m glad I did. I really respect the venture, and the stop didn’t disappoint. Big open tasting room with nearby food available. Glad to see a business like this resurrect a neighborhood. But ... not the best experience ... Not much different Brooklyn beers available here than in my local store in Virginia. Buy a $4 token for beers ... most are just 1 token, but others are 2 or 3!? I think they can work on that. Not the friendliest staff either ... seem bothered with you. But if they did much nicer than this, it would probably be even more crowded, just based on the quality beers. Brewery #534.
