Went here after the Sixpoint tour, which was definitly better. The tour is about 50 people and one guide taking us to the fermentors and talking for 30 minutes. He makes crappy jokes and the drunkies laugh. The place is a giant warehouse and there is a large indoor picnic area which is very happening. The beer poured was nice this time Saison and Smoked Porter were the 2 i got. However, they are served in small plastic cups, not cool. All in all its ok, fun but not as inviting as the 6point.

I stopped by this place, after my excellent tour of the Six Point Craft Ale brewery. What a huge contrast between breweries. Someone had already described Brooklyn brewery as being an giant indoor picnic area, complete with utilitarian picnic tables and the like. Very true. A warehouse space filled with tourists sampling beer on tap after the usual tour. Souvenir section nearby to sell you chips needed to get beer, tee shirts, baseball caps, autographed books by Garrett Oliver and Steve Hiney, etc. Decided to skip the brewery tour to spend more time sampling the tap brews: Brooklyn Pilsner, Lager, Brown ale, Pennent, Oktoberfest, Weiss, and Smoked porter. Unfortunately, I did not see their outstanding Dark Chocolate Stout on tap. Vintage bottles of stout can be purchased from the souvenir shop. I didnít think that Brooklyn brewery did any real brewing in their facility but later learned that some brewing is done there and elsewhere like Utica, New York. All in all, this is a fun place to visit.

As long as you buy your tokens, youíll be fine at this austere brewery/taproom. The tour is more of a lecture in the brewery half of the establishment, but a free beer is your reward for listening to the story of Brooklyn Breweryís history/process -- which is actually quite interesting. Brewerís Reserve beers are on tap, as are the old trusty standbys. Eight taps in all. Staff are fantastic, and really care about their craft and the end product. The beer is fresh, delicious, and reasonably priced. There is, however, no food.

More like an indoor picnic area for beer lovers - the laid back, personable staff makes you feel comfortable, as if you needed that considering they have a decent amount of their quality offerings on tap for 3 bucks a piece (which is damn cheap for NY) - bring a sandwich, grab a seat, and have some fun.

I donít know what this place is normally like, but Friday night around 9pm it was like a warehouse party or something. Its fun for decent-priced couple of beers, but it did have a bit too much of a party atmosphere. I also didnít like the fact that I waited in a long line for beer, only to find out I needed to buy tokens.

The brewery is good, but everything ese sucks. When we at last got there they closed like 1 hour too early, they had no beers left on tap and the waiters were rude.

Great brewery. Decent comprehensive tour. Great environment for beer drinking with good music on the speakers. Tour was the draw, but two beers on tap for 5 bucks was a great aspect as well. Also, the people there were very helpful including that bartender that was really into beer. Even though I didnt have a token on me, he was like "Donít worry, bring one back later. I donít want you to not have a beer right now." Wide selection of most of their brews. Probably about 10 on tap. Good souveneir area as well with nice tees and pint glasses.
