    Be sure to sign up for a brewery tour as soon as you arrive, as they fill up pretty quickly during the weekends. With beer tokens costing $20 for 5, it's a great way to sample a wide variety of beers.

    The beers that we tried weren't that great but it's a nice experience to go inside and see the crowd. Buy the 5 for $20 beer tokens and you're set. Find the german bar on 3rd street afterwards!

    A great spot to sample the local microbrewery's selection! You can bring your own food and play Jenga or cards at a table. We've always enjoyed the tour, its more of the history than a walking tour.

    The brewery that put Brooklyn Craft Beer on the map. Do a tour,and stick around after to drink a few of their offerings. Personal fave is Black Chocolate Stout.

    Get the tour—it's only one room and then it's back to drinking some of their rare and cask-conditioned beers in a fun, noisy-but-bearable bar space. Say hi to the warehouse cat while you're visiting. Read more

    It's impossible to go wrong with a trip here. Enjoy a tour or grab a brew or two with your friends inside at the beer garden. A lively spot on the weekends.

    5 tokens for 20 dollars in the weekends is just great! Try the sour beers! And the 4 tokens worth Belgian triple is totally worth it, specially because they give you the glass!

    Lots of rules and strict time constraints here, but once you get passed that, it’s a pretty good time. The Blue Ribbon fried chicken was among the best I’ve ever had!

    Great place to drink a beer and get to know more about the history of Brooklyn Brewery! The tour is free and each beer is about 5 dollars. Our guide, Mike, was great! Hilarious stories and lots of fun

    Get here EARLY on weekends! Once the line forms outside, you can't enter until people leave. Great for groups (once you can snag a table). Lively and fun atmosphere.

    great tasting room stop if in wburg. they offer free tours and it's always cool to hear the 80s story of the wburg location's expansion into a national brand.

    Fantastic small batch tour, was really focused on the history and beer tasting more than the actual brewing process. Sampled some fantastic beers

    After the brewery tour, trade in tokens for brews like the ’55 Pennant Ale, congregate with your beer-loving brethren in a packed cafeteria, and play a few hands of poker while you enjoy the buzz. Read more

    Free tour of the Brewery! Why wouldn't you!?! Be sure to take a beer with you; don't worry, it's encouraged. If you're lucky to get Ian as a tour guide, you're winning at life.

    You can’t go to Brooklyn without visiting the brewery. These boys would agree! Although in terms of beer selection I prefer some of the other places nearby like Tørst!

    Buy the tokens before ordering your beer! You can buy food from food truck outside! I love their beer, so of course this was perfect for me.

    The deal is great:$20 for 5 brews. The brews are great and they offer a lot of beers that are only available at the brewery. The line is entirely too long. Need to find a way to serve more people

    If you want a behind-the-scenes look at one of the city’s famous breweries, now is the time. The Brooklyn Brewery, located in Williamsburg, hosts a wide range of free tours on Saturdays and Sundays.

    One of my favorite things to do in a new city is to explore the microbrewery scene and try as many different brews as possible. Read more

    This is a very similar experience to many other brewery rooms in the country, so nothing unique. However, the beer is excellent and the value is great for New York ($20 for 5 beers).

    It's a bit of a misnomer. The brewery in Brooklyn only brews the local "big bottles" and nothing else. The tour is quick. You buy wooden beer tokens. They used to be cheap.

    I've been here several times, but this past weekend the brewery was like a combination of a dog park and a nursery. Let's keep our children and pets at home please!

    The Brooklyn Brewery stepped onto the scene in 1988, first bringing beer to Brooklyn from a brewery in upstate New York and then, in 1996, from this former matzoh factory in Williamsburg. Read more

    Great spot. The tour was worth going on. The line to get beer was unpredictable on a Sunday. Sometimes short, sometimes crazy long. Mad dog the line until it's short or get 2 beers while you're there

    The brewery is currently in the midst of a multi-million dollar expansion that will boost its capacity in the borough. Right now, much of their beer is brewed at F.X. Matt Brewing in Utica, NY.

    Arrive early if you want to get a spot/picnic table. Ask the "bartenders" for a sample if you're not sure what beer you want. And forgo the tour - it's not that great.

    Almost all of the beers are vegan! But watch out for the brewery’s Brooklyn Local 2 and Brooklyn BAMboozle beers, along with several past Brewmaster’s Reserve drinks, which may contain honey.
