Beer Buffs Unite in Brooklyn New York, USA
There was once a time, not so long ago, when Williamsburg wasn’t somewhere people visited. Now things are different and, even if they weren’t, it’d still be worth crossing the bridge to visit Brooklyn Brewery. From Monday to Thursday, the crew here runs bookable Small Batch Tours – part history lesson, part guided tasting – where you can ask questions and chill out afterwards.
On the weekends (it’s a no-tour zone on Friday), it’s a bit more laissez-faire with tickets for afternoon tours available on site an hour before. Order some pizza nearby, grab one of the seasonal brews and enjoy the atmosphere.
- Flying your beer-geek flag and learning all you ever wanted to know about the delicious amber liquid
- Taking home your souvenir Brooklyn Spiegelau Saison Glass
- Being in an area surrounded by great eateries – perfect for filling up afterwards
- After your initial tasting, you’ll need to purchase tokens to try other beers
Brooklyn Brewery runs two-hour Small Batch Tours at 5pm every Monday to Thursday for US$15. Bookings essential.
