It’s taken 5 years, a search for space that reached hundreds of square miles and an international collaboration unmatched in New York. Co-Founder Steve Hindy, Brewmaster Garrett Oliver and The Brooklyn Brewery are proud to celebrate the unveiling of Expansion Phase 1 with the first brew from our new brewhouse: Brooklyn Main Engine Start.

For your chance to win a pair of tickets to this momentous event, email with the answer to this question:
