    Worth the trip to Brooklyn
    Fun to know how to brew beer. The length of the tour was just right. Got 4 beers and a gift glass for each person. Reasonably priced considering the quality of the beer. Def coming back when they move to the new place next year.

    Brilliant tour
    This is a brilliant tour. We had a great guide who was really engaging and you get to try loads of different beers. It was probably the best value for money excursion on our whole trip too. Highly recommended!

    A fab tour and great experience
    Jessie was our tour guide and she was fabulous. She was knowledgable and really engaging and made the tour fun. She was full of facts and a really nice person. The tour itself was interesting and fun and it was great to try some beers too.

    Great Brewery
    Went here on the recommendation of one of the front desk staff at the hotel I was staying in. Glad my co-worker and I took her suggestion. Bartenders were great. The second night we went the bartender wanted to know where we were from since she hadn't seen un in there before. When we told her Virginia, she said first beers are on me. When our bill came, we noticed that more one bill had been comped and we were charged for one appetizer. Appetizers were great especially the nachos that were smothered in cheese. Bartender definitely knew the beers on tap. Will definitely be back the next time I'm back in Brooklyn.

    Great brewery tour, worth the price!
    Had the Small Batch Tour, not free but definitely worth the price for the individual attention, and the 3 different beers that we were given. Our tour guide Ellie was exceptional, very knowledgeable, and answered all of our questions. Brooklyn Brewery is lucky to have her!

    Great beer tour experience for all senses!
    Great to enjoy a behind the scenes tour with the enthusiastic guide and get both the facts, the history and the inside insights. Get to try out the test beers directly from the tap in the tap room and also their special brew not released to the public. Great location, great beer, nice brewery and great employees. Highly recommended!

    Fun tour, good beer!
    Loved this. We popped in just at opening time hoping just to sample a beer or two in the taproom but had the chance to join the tour. I’ve done longer tours but we had a fantastic energetic guide who took our small group of 6 around the small brewery and some interesting test beer tastings. We ended with some rare tastings back in the bar - and after ended up in the pub quiz! Brooklyn offer so much more than their favourite lager - I’m a hazy fan and also admire their Special Effects zero. Even the stouts were a feast of flavours. Recommended.

    Great tour, great beers
    Tour was insightful and the beer tasting was great. Joe was a really good tour guide and made everyone laugh. We had 4 beers to try during the tour all great and some of them exclusive to the tour. Deffo worth doing the tour. After the tour we stayed in the tap room and got some dinner recommendations from one of the other bar staff members which turned out to be also really good. Can’t remember his name unfortunately but I do remember he was a Brazilian guy.

    Visit to the Mothership
    We have enjoyed beer from this brewery for years in Nevada, but sadly just a few styles. On this trip to NYC, we made the effort to visit the mothership. Not easy to maneuver via the subway - but we did it! Hubby loved his flight, while I enjoyed a lovely rose’. Had fun buying merch to take home to Las Vegas. Our server was Alma - and she was terrific.

I was visiting NYC and decided to do a trip out to Brooklyn to visit the brewery, as I am a fan of the beer and thought it would be a fun activity. I checked opening hours on the website, and it was apparent that the brewery offered a free tour on Sundays 1-6pm, so we decided to go and visit on this day. We got there, and the door was opening and there was a large number of people in the Brew House enjoying a pint. However, the man on the door was extremely rude and told us it was closed. When we asked why, he asserted that a private event was taking place and we were not allowed to enter... Ironically, there was a sign on the wall next to him saying that the brewery was open until 6pm, and it was now around 3:30pm.

I was annoyed, and disappointed that this man did not even apologise. I'm sure we just had an unlucky experience, and if you do actually manage to get inside the beer is pretty good. Customer service, not great... if I would you, I would double check before you go that you can actually get in. In fact, this extends to most places in Williamsburg. The vibe is cool and edgy on paper, but in reality it's pretentious and full of rude people, and there were lots of "private events" on at about 3 roof top bars we tried too. My advice would be to stick to Dumbo.

Fun spot to check out if you are in the area and the lines aren't too long. Tried to stop here in the summer a couple years back and the line was long and unmoving. Popped in jus about 12:45 on a Sunday and walked right in and got tix for the 1pm tour. Tour is relatively short, but it is neat to get a glimpse into the operation. If you can go during the week, they have more intimate/informative ~$25 tour that I would like to take compared to this free one. Was annoyed that, even on a slow Sunday, they don't offer flights....I mean, I'm a tourist, I'm not gonna be back anytime soon and I wanna try 4+ beers and not spend a fortune or get smashed doing it. Bought some beers to go. Tasting room is relaxed and you can order food from Mabel's BBQ down the street right on your phone and have it delivered. They have events in the tasting room, too...they were doing a sushi making class while we were there.

Great tour focusing on tasting rather than a too in depth "how to make beer" tour, best I have been on. Getting a can to take round with you, multiple tasters with how to taste notes etc. great guys there all with sense of humour and interaction. For the price too we were surprised at how much beer you get given and a free glass also! Best brewery tour I have done in the world. And the beer there is superb! Wish they shipped more to the UK!

Small batch tour was perfect to look around brewery. It includes one can of beer and free samples during the batch tour. You can taste the different types of beer. The tour guy was so enthusiastic and fun! He made this tour much fun! I would love to visit again. And We got beer glasses after the tour!

I was visiting the area from out of state, always wanted to come here but I will never come back here ! I drove 2 hours to get to see this place , I’m also a well paying customer everywhere I go so I don’t appreciate when employees are rude at me for no reason . this past weekend had the worst experience ever! I arrived there at 735pm, google shows it closes at 8pm . The guy at the front was very rude and lied saying they close at 6pm meanwhile I saw people walking in when I was looking for parking . This was totally unacceptable and very unprofessional, I felt very uncomfortable and offended. I’ll make sure to tell all my friends not to come here !

We visited the brewery today. We found the staff unfriendly and unhelpful and more interested in talking to each other than with customers. While I was waiting, one of the staff members behind the bar let off a loud belch which I found both disgusting and disrespectful.
My beer was nice although my wife ordered a drink which came in a can which she didn’t enjoy but that’s a matter of personal taste whereas the staff behaviour isn’t. Before we visited The Brooklyn Brewery we went to The Talea Beer Co. which was a totally different experience with friendly and attentive staff and great beer. If you are choosing a visit to a brewery then I highly recommend Talea as a better choice.

We attended the free 30 min tour on a Sunday and stayed afterwards to try a few beers in the main bar area.
The tour was great. We were a few minutes late and were encouraged to grab a beer so we could drink whilst walking. The tour host was polite, enthusiastic and happy to answer any questions. He came with a wealth of knowledge.
The main bar area was busy but there was space to move and find a seat. A local jazz band were playing.
Would certainly recommend this to anyone visiting the area who has a few spare hours.

We booked the tour as we were heading over to Brooklyn anyway, and as we had the NYC pass it got us a free beer at the Brewery. The tour was great, our guide Tracie was brilliant! The sour beer was ... Interesting! And I still can't decide if I like it or not! I even got to pull my first pint! Highly recommended, as great value for money.

First of all, everyone was very friendly. James explained a lot of interesting things about the Brookling beer and the story (history) behind it. He did it also in a very enjoyable way. The beers we tried were really interesting. We also liked that the kids could join the tour, because otherwise we wouldn’t have been able to join.
