Beer & Basketball All Month at the N4 Tap Room (NYC)

Neon sign on brick wall

Jury’s still out on whether dogs can play basketball, but while the debate rages on we’ll be running draft specials from March 14 to April 2 at N4 Tap Room in honor of the college basketball chaos.

Drop by the Whole Foods in Williamsburg to find all of our beers on happy hour pricing during any college basketball game. While your playoffs bracket disintegrates right before your eyes you can score $5 pints of Brooklyn Lager, Naranjito, and Bel Air Sour as well as $6 pours of our Black Chocolate Stout.

Beyond basketball, we’ll also be causing trouble at trivia night every Wednesday at 7 PM with Trivia NYC. And don’t sleep on N4 Tap Room’s Fish Frydays at 5 PM for $1 oyster happy hour and $13 fish & chips.

So whether you’re a college basketball fanatic or just a big ol’ beer nerd, stop by all month and we’ll hook you up.

Keeping You Cozy at Hunter Mountain


Move over cocoa, because we’re the new winter warmer in town. We’re shacking up for the ski season at the lovely Hunter Mountain in the eponymous Hunter, NY.

Whether you’re carving up the bunny slopes, constructing an evil snow fortress, or just came for the beautiful views, once you’re finished hitting the slopes you can relax with a Brooklyn beer in the Main Lodge. Skiing is thirsty work, after all. Sure, you could try to carry your beer with you, but trust us: frozen beers aren’t as refreshing at single-digit temperatures.

And we’re not content with just slinging beers during our winter residency–stay tuned for all sorts of shindigs, promotions, and giveaways we’ve got planned. Until then you can check out Hunter Mountain’s Event Calendar for workshops, races, and more.

Keep those tips up and we’ll see you on the slopes.

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.

Wednesday, 11/15 at Whole Foods Williamsburg from 3-7PM
Thursday, 11/16 at Whole Foods Third and 3rd from 3-7 PM
Friday, 11/17 at Whole Foods Upper East Side from 3-7PM

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
