A great place to sit and hang out with friends. Easily do-able in an afternoon as the tour itself is less than an hour. In fact, if you've ever been on a brewery tour anywhere, feel free to skip this one and go straight for the beer. While you are on the tour the line for the beer will get ridiculously long and the tour does not have much to see (still, the tour guides are fun and have a great sense of humor and pride in the beer they represent). I was impressed with the atmosphere as a whole: you walk into a big room with picnic tables and loud music where dozens of people are just hanging out with friends. Great for groups and the beer servings are more than generous.

I love the beer but not the brewery. Lucky for me that I do not have to go there to enjoy the products. Waiting on a line to get in to then wait on a line to buy the tokens to then wait on a line to get beer is not enjoyable for me. Neither is their lack of seating. I will just enjoy their beer at my local bar and not have to be subject to their rude security staff and unshowered patrons. Also, the story about how the mafia story told during the tour is not believable.

I used to really love coming to Brooklyn Brewery but the lines, even before it opens are crazy. You wait on a line to get in, you wait on a line to buy beer tokens, you wait on a line to get beer and then finally, you wait on a line to get on the tour. The beer tokens are 5 for $20, which isn't bad and you have to bring food or order from the trucks stationed outside. Everyone is friendly, except for some of the other patrons. Bottom Line: If you have visiting friends who are beer lovers and/or you have the patience of a saint, go ahead and enjoy it, but go early.

Possibly the worst experience I have EVER had. I felt gypped but more so HUMILIATED. I went to a DinnerLab event at The Brooklyn Brewery last night (I love DinnerLab events, they ALWAYS have a great turnaround) but The Brooklyn Brewery made it a DISASTER! First of all there was no open bar (as with every other DinnerLab event); I'm not an alcoholic but I expect to have a little more then a QUARTER filled glass with BEER (ESPECIALLY IN A BREWERY!) in it. You cant even call it sampling as originally they only served ONE type of beer! There was some initial mingling prior to the dinner event but that did little good as they had ASSIGNED seats (WITH COMPLETE STRANGERS!). What is the point of mingling prior to dinner (meeting people that you actually find interesting and want to spend the evening with) if you cant sit next to them! That was my FIRST complaint. Once finally seated they once again served a quarter of a glass with beer in it (for the first course!), This is when I initially complained for the SECOND time because I was honestly THIRSTY. Onto the the food: First course consisted of FOUR tortilla chips with a tiny side of guacamole to SHARE with TWO people! Second course wasn't so bad but I never got to fully try it because we where "kindly" cut off and basically asked to leave! Apparently expressing my concerns to Brooklyn Brewery staff/management is NOT allowed. I am assuming this is because Brooklyn Brewery does not understand the definition of customer service. I don't think its too much to ask to sit us with a group of people, whom we both found interesting (during the initial mingling stages of the event.) and POSSIBLY provide some beverage at the BREWERY aside from WATER. I feel humiliated and I will most definitely be avoiding Brooklyn Brewery and ALL their beers from now.

I loved the afternoon spent in the Brewery. Due to low season we found spaces on the free tour on the weekend, and we liked it, funny and informative without getting exhaustive. Then we moved to the bar and sampled a few beers, all of great quality (particularly liked the Sorachi Ace and Blast!). Highly recommended for fans of craft beer, or just to have a few beers with friends (also cheaper than most places around)

Brooklyn Brewery has great beer and I’ve been on a variety of beer tours throughout the US. Just like every beer tour you learn about the history of the brewery and the beers they brew here. You must make reservations way in advance to get on the tour and it fills up. The tour costs $10 per person and you’ll get to try a small sample of 2 ounce or so pours during the tour along with a souvenir glass. Don’t get there earlier than 5pm. They won’t let you in. The entrance is also a bit confusing as it isn’t easily marked. During the tour, the staff were direct and informative but not terribly chatty. I usually find brewers love talking about beer but this was more of a rehearsed show rather than a shared love of beers. For all I know they could have been actors—this is Williamsburg after all. They did answer questions, but seemed more annoyed by them rather than being seen as a way to engage in a conversation. After the tour you’ll have some time to purchase beer via tokens. This is kinda strange as there is no cash handling. You buy a token and then buy a beer with it and you get upsold into buying 5 token for $20 which unless you’ve got a group it’s hard to drink 5 beers in an hour. You can also buy a few snacks but nothing substantial (the snacks were kinda stale and they were unsympathetic about complaints) The gift shop is fun for any beer enthusiast and has a variety of items. I really enjoyed the tour and recommend it to anyone visiting but realize this is New York after all and the hipster capital of the world, so expect a bit of ‘tude to go along with the tour. Skip the snacks and go for the beer.
