Brooklyn makes some great stuff, but they also contract out a LOT of their brewing, so the actual brewing facility in Williamsburg is quite small. Much smaller, in fact, than the indoor picnic area where the tour ends with your one free pint. Anyway, the entire tour takes place in one room, and our particular tour guide yabbed on a bit longer than I needed to stand through, especially considering he was already drinking beer and the rest of us had to watch him enjoy a beer in front of us, stopping to tell us how great it was, at least twice. Finally, after about an hour of babble (most of the history was interesting, though) he gave us our free drink tickets and sent us into the afforementioned indoor picnic area and encouraged us to buy more drink tickets. Nothing I’d go out of my way for.

I visited this place on thier "tasting" night where it was $3 a beer on tap. Pretty nice set up, it is in the middle of the brewery, i wasn’t able to do the tour so I wanted to do the tasting instead. It was much more crowded than I thought it would be, and about 25% of the people were there to actually do a tasting and 75% of the people were there for the $3 beers(rare in NY) I still had a great time and picked me up some Brooklyn Merchandise....

Very nice spot for friends. Not a place to look for their rares or seasonals. Only $3 a pint; but only of their generic regular brews.

Interesting, if not a little dull. Wasn’t much of a tour, more of a lecture from the fermenters. Very interesting though, and the guide was ratehr engageing. Ha plenty of there brews on hand in the indoor picnic area. Was cool, but not as fun as I had imagined.

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 didn’t 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, you’ll 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 Brewery’s history/process -- which is actually quite interesting. Brewer’s 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 don’t 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 didn’t like the fact that I waited in a long line for beer, only to find out I needed to buy tokens.
