Bid for Brooklyn & Support the Provincetown Film Society


Don't be that guy at the auction.

Have you ever thought to yourself, “Gee, I’d like to visit Brooklyn Brewery, but I need to save all my money to support my local film society”? Well now you can kill two birds with one charitable stone by bidding on our item in the Provincetown Film Society’s Black Friday Auction.

If you win our lot you get to come hang with us at the Brewery and learn about our history and beer first hand. The two person package includes a VIP tour of the Brewery, a 1-night stay in a local Williamsburg hotel, a $100 gift card towards dinner in Brooklyn, and a whopping 1-year supply of our beer (12 cases).

Plus the proceeds from the auction go on to support the Provincetown Film Society, a wonderful organization that supports local artists and runs the annual Provincetown International Film Festival. It’s an incredible chance to both support the arts and get a behind-the-scenes look at our Brewery in one fell swoop, but you’d better act fast because the auction closes on December 3rd at 10PM.

You can bid on the auction here, and we’ll see you at the Brewery.

Meet Beer’s Best Buds at Whole Foods NYC


Beer gets along with everybody. Pretzels, wings, you name it. But there are only two who can truly call themselves Beer’s best friends: Beef and Cheese, and they go way back. Like, Ancient Mesopotamia back.

We’re celebrating this ancient friendship with tastings at Whole Foods in and around NYC over the next few weeks, and we’ve teamed up with Mighty Organic and Organic Valley to complete the gastronomical dream team.

Mighty Organic will be slinging the beef with their 100% grass-fed Mighty Bars in both Bacon & Apple and Sea Salt & Cracked Pepper. They’re protein packed, paleo-friendly, and they don’t mess around. Organic Valley will be cheesing it with their small-batch Grassmilk Raw Cheddar and Raw Sharp Cheddar. Their cheeses are also 100% grass-fed, and Brooklyn beer would be too if beer came from cows. We’ve paired our Winter Lager and our classic Brooklyn Lager to help balance out the beef and cheese ballet.

So drop by any of the tastings listed below, and we’ll introduce you to the three tastiest friends around.

End Oktoberfest Right at The Ginger Man

BrooklynBrewery_JackRose-132 flip

Summer romances, Hugh Jackman’s tenure as Wolverine, and Oktoberfest: three wonderful things that sadly must come to an end one day. In order to properly honor the world’s best beer festival, we’re sending it off in style with the good folks from the Ginger Man.

Join us on October 3rd, the last day of Oktoberfest, at all Ginger Man Texas locations for our Oktoberfest Send Off. Starting at 6PM if you order a stein of Brooklyn Oktoberfest you get to keep the wonderful stein glass it comes us. And trust us, these are some awesome, gigantic steins worthy of a Norse god. Unfortunately the glassware is limited, so be sure to arrive early if you want to imbibe like a Bavarian all year long.

So swing by, raise a stein, and let’s bid farewell to Oktoberfest until next year–we’re already counting down the days. Prost!

Come hang with us at:
+The Ginger Man Dallas
+The Ginger Man Plano
+The Ginger Man Fort Worth
+The Ginger Man Southlake
+The Ginger Man Austin
+The Ginger Man Houston

Keeping You Warm with Little Woodrow’s


As the summer draws to an end and fall begins to creep in, we’re taking after the yellow-bellied sapsucker and heading South for warmer weather.  That’s why we’re teaming up with Little Woodrow’s for the fall at all of their Austin locations. This means that from September-November you’ll be able to find our seasonal beers featured on tap at all five locations:

+Burnet Road
+West 6th Street
+Southpark Meadows
+Tech Ridge
+Parmer Lane

We’re pouring our Oktoberfest for all of September and October, just in time for jacket weather. Once November rolls around and things get real chilly, we’ll switch to our Black Chocolate Stout to keep you warm and fuzzy. And if you’re really lucky you just might run into us and walk away with a free pint glass.

While we’d love it if the only beer you ever drank was from Brooklyn Brewery, there’s much more great craft beer out in the world waiting to be discovered. And there’s no better place to see and taste the breadth of the craft beer scene than the 5th London Craft Beer Festival taking place August 4-6.

Join us at the historic Shoreditch Electric Light Station for three days of beer-filled fun. As you explore the former power station-turned premier circus school we’ll be pouring our top lineup of beers alongside over 45 other amazing craft breweries.

Since good food makes great beer that much greater, the festival also has pop-up kitchens from some of London’s finest restaurants and chefs to keep you fueled up for more good times. The fine folks of LCBF have also lined up gotten some killer musicians to get your toes tapping as you’re tasting. You can see the full schedule of musicians below.

So whether you’ll join us for one session or stay for the whole festival, be sure to pick up your tickets here.

SLIDELUCK Northside II Recap

It might have been a wet and miserable night on the streets of Williamsburg Saturday, but the mood couldn’t have been more different inside Artists & Fleas’ bustling marketplace on North 7th Street! Slideluck Northside II shined its light on the amazingly talented photographers and visual artists living and working in the neighborhoods of Williamsburg, Greenpoint, and Bushwick.

Our host and event partner, Artists and Fleas, provided the perfect setting. As Slideluckers came in from out of the rain, they dried themselves off and perused the maze of original vendors overflowing with treasures. Folks also made sure to get a shot of themselves at the Self Portrait Project.

This Slideluck really brought the goods – the potluck table was bountiful with scrumptious delights, all of which went perfectly with a refreshing, ice-cold Brooklyn Lager. Notable among them were Sean’s spicy-sweet Thai noodle dish, Alex’s Nutella Macadamia Rice Krispie treats, and Christa’s tortilla espanola. It was a tough call, but Gabor’s homemade Lecsó, a Hungarian thick vegetable ragout, that enticed our judges, earning him the prize of a gift certificate to the recently opened Meadowsweet restaurant.

Once everyone had taken their fill of the potluck, it was time to enjoy the slideshow. From Sarah Small’s playful portraits to travelogues by John Saponara and Michael Christopher Brown, the show provided a vibrant snapshot of some of the neighborhood’s most creative minds. After the show, everyone retreated to nearby Shelter to ride out the rest of the rainy night in the company of friends. Shout out to all of our sponsors, without whom none of this magic would be possible! Thank you to Sandbox Studios, Offset, Artists & Fleas, Souverain, the Self Portrait Project, and – of course – Brooklyn Brewery!

A Table Full of Ace’s (and Oysters)

photo 1 (1)

What  used to be a poor mans lunch, (Oysters and farm house saison), has become  a decadent  snack .  Sorachi Ace is a likely companion for the sweet flesh of the West Coast  Kumamoto oyster, picking up on the citrus caviar (finger lime) accompaniment.  Sorachi also balances the ocean-like salty brine of local Blue Point Oysters, and the apple mignonette they where topped with,  making it an ideal pairing for East or West Coast oysters, and a lazy afternoon with friends.
