Now, we're happy to report that The Brewery hosts a bustling crowd of beer enthusiasts, neighbors, tourists and all sorts of thirsty people, all week long. Come and visit us. Soon.

    And precisely why might one want to join us for a Small Batch Tour? These tours are limited to the first 30 souls to put down their $10. The price of admission gets you a guided tasting of four of our beers and an in-depth Brewery history lesson and tour. Our resident experts can answer just about any beer or Brooklyn Brewery question you can think of so come prepared to geek out. The Small Batch Tour is great for neighbors and tourists alike, as you pretty much have the place to yourselves. 

    The deets:

    • 30 people max
    • Guided tasting of 4 different Brooklyn beers
    • 30-45 minute tour of the Brewhouse and Packaging Room
    • Afterwards, one is welcome to get a couple of pints (beers are $5 each or 5 for $20) or purchase dry goods and souvenirs at The Company Store
    • All participants leave with a complimentary souvenir Brooklyn Brewery stemware glass
    • Guests must be over 21 or accompanied by a parent or legal guardian
    • One can order food delivered to The Brewery or can bring their own but there's not all that much time for eating. We're happy to recommend a bevy of delicious restaurants near The Brewery right here.
    • Please do not wear open-toe or high heeled footware! This is a working brewery and hot liquid does floweth on the floor. For safety's sake, cover up those beautiful feet of yours.
    • Reservations are accepted approximately 1 month prior to the requested tour date. Dates fill up quickly!
    • When you arrive at the Eventbrite Reservation link, use the drop down box "Please select a date to attend" to choose your date. If the date is not listed, either it is not available yet (the date is 30+ days prior to the requested tour) or the date is sold out with no additional availability. 
    • Due to the limited size of our brewhouse, the maximum size of the tour is 30 guests. 
    • We do not have a waitlist for the Small Batch Tours.  Instead, when guests cancel the tour, their tickets will become available via our website. If you do not see the date available on the website, the date is not available. We apologize!
    • If you have a New York Pass, please make reservations as normal. Your discount will not apply until you arrive at the brewery on the date of the tour and present your New York Pass. Each guest that presents a valid New York Pass upon entrance to the Small Batch Tour, will be issued a $2 refund.
    • By booking reservations on a Small Batch Brewery Tour, you will automatically begin to receive Brooklyn Brewery's First Runnings e-newsletter - you can unsubscribe at any time.

  • Friday 

    The line starts forming as early as 5pm and the doors open at 6pm for this weekly tradition. The rules are simple: beer tokens are 5 for $20 or $5 each. The pizza is deliverable. The space is bare bones. There is very little to get in the way of tasting and savoring some of the best and freshest beer in the whole wide world. Get here early to snag a table in our communal Tasting Room and settle in.

    Required Reading: 

    • 6-11pm every Friday
    • No cover. This isn't the Meatpacking District.

    • Every Friday we tap a new cask for your Real Ale needs.
    • Beer tokens are $5 each or 5 for $20

    Hit up Smorgasburg at East River State Park to grab some tasty vittles to enjoy while walking a few blocks along the waterfront, staring at the vista of Manhattan, before finding your way to our Tasting Room. Saturdays at The Brewery are an all-day affair. We open promptly at noon and start shutting down around 7:30 for closing time at 8pm.

  • Sunday 

    A Sunday at The Brewery is a great way to remedy your looming Monday pre-sadness. It's a bit quieter. You'll most likely hear some Harvest-era Neil Young. The sun (which always shines on Brooklyn Brewery) comes through the windows in a way that sends you automatically to the barman behind the Weisse handle. And let's not forget you can order in food delivery from local vendors to nourish you as you taste our beer and take our tours. The prices are low and the atmosphere is better than ever.
