An original pit-stop. The main room is like a hangar/gymnasium with spread out picnic tables. You can drink fresh beers on tap by buying $4 tokens at a separate kiosk, certainly a way of doing things to avoid some kind of restrictive law. I will not forget the big cat laying on the token booth, seems to be some kind of mascot of the place. As for the beer they had 8 taps. Those are obviously ultra-fresh beers and a fresh Brooklyn Blast on tap is never a bad experience. They are however serving the beers in plastic glasses, that sucks. Then there is also the tour of the brewery. Note that THIS IS NOT Brooklyn brewery main installation. If Iím not mistaken this is the original brewery but nowadays, 95%+ of the production is done at a large out of town facility. This smaller set-up is still used to brew the more experimental and smaller batches. Tour guide was a brewer and even though his presentation didnít go into much details he was happily answering more geeky questions that the more knowledgeable people were asking. Overall a really worthwhile and original pit-stop, a fun change of pace while touring the beer places in Brooklyn. Really worth visiting once, but not a place I will go back to.

Went here on a Saturday afternoon while visiting NYC. $20 for 5 12 oz beers. Did the free tour which was fun. No food, but a pizza food truck was parked outside and appeared to be very popular. My only complaint is that at times the line for a beer was about 75 people deep. Lots of fun, but be prepared for crowds.

Amazing tour. Short and to the point. Beautiful space. Nice tap selection, even better bottles. Expensive but worthwhile.

Visited on Sat. afternoon. Missed the tour and went straight to the tasting room. Great selection of the brewery beers (of courseÖ), including fresh brews that were not listed yet on ratebeer. Price is $5 a pint (or 5 for $20), no food but you can order in. Nice ambiance, I liked the place.

It gets super crowded with a Manhattan crowd. But the price is good and you canít get more fresh BK beers than here. Usually something not on the regular six pack line-up is pouring. Itís 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. Didnít 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 wasnít 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.
