It’s becoming a tradition here at the brewery to spend one night each month guffawing at Tom Shillue and his cohort of expert storytellers. Tom, if you don’t already know, is a master tale spinner and each month he and our partners, Brooklyn Based put together a program of great, true stories from various raconteurs and call it “Tom Shillue’s Funny Story.” The show has been a hit so far, and for $10 (including a beer), it’s a real bargain too. Join us on Thursday, October 16th at 8pm for laughs and good times.
The first Tom Shillue’s Funny Story podcast is now available! Created by our friends at Brooklyn Based, take a listen here.
Join us for an evening of Swedish brewing history and a beer tasting at the Museum with proceeds from the event going towards the Museum’s Water Tower Fund to restore the Andersonville Water Tower. Jenny Pfäfflin, a Certified Cicerone, will present both the history of beer in Sweden and will give insights into the new craft scene and burgeoning breweries of Scandinavia. A happy hour will follow featuring local beers and Brooklyn Brewery’s “Hammarby Syndrome”, with Swedish bites provided by Svea. Get tickets below.
On Thursday, October 16th, come out and grab your Oktoberfest stein. We’re hosting a Gank your Glass night at Thirsty Moose Taphouse in Portsmouth, NH.

Come to Barcade Philadelphia on Thursday, October 16 at 6 PM for a night of defending beer. Brooklyn Defender will hit the taps for the first time in Philadelphia, with the first fifty pours coming in a limited edition Brooklyn Defender pint glass that you get to take home with you. All this is going on during Barcade Philly’s third anniversary bash, so you might want to come to this one a little early to catch all the fun and Defend Beer.
Head to the Rye Roadhouse on Thursday, October 16 for an evening of Oktoberfest food, beer and celebration. There will be a special menu of traditional German cuisine and a special $5 deal on pints of Brooklyn Oktoberfest. Come dirndl’d for the occasion and raise a glass to the season.
While you’re busy wondering if there’s life on mars, we’ll be at Rocking Horse in Chicago, Illinois for Bowie Night. What’s Bowie Night?

Join the Brooklyn Brewery brewing team and Brewmaster Garrett Oliver on Tuesday, October 14 at 7 PM as they drop in on our neighbors and friends at Other Half Brewing here in Brooklyn. The plan for the night is simple: we’ll be busting out the bottles hiding in the deepest reaches of our cellar, pouring and discussing them in one of their rarest appearances. Other Half will open their taps to allow you to explore their bounty of beers as well. Once the Ghost Bottles are gone, so are we. Space is extremely limited, so get there early and keep a tight grip on your glass.
Elevate your glassware when you grab a Post Road Pumpkin Ale or Blast! at the Gingerman – after you finish your beer, keep the glass it came in!
