After hearing the Brewery began from Steve Hindy receiving a homebrewing kit I became intrigued about trying it myself. I asked Peebles about his experience homebrewing and according to him the process for ales are easier to create at home than lagers. The yeast in lagers need to be set at colder temperatures for about 4-5 weeks. I contemplated giving it a go sacrificing my refrigerator space and rent money on equipment. Though determined, at this moment I've decided to leave it to the experts.
Brooklyn Brewery is a historical part of Williamsburg, having been here for over 25 years. It brought breweries back to a neighborhood where they used to thrive. The brewery is a staple that visitors and locals can enjoy in learning about beer, free entertainment, and tasting new and old style beers.
Want to feel like a tourist for the day? Then take the free tour on the weekends or for those feeling more ambitious take the extended version on the weekdays which includes four beer tastings and the tour for $15. If you are looking for a spot to soak in natural light and indulge in an industrial warehouse while drinking a local beer then I'd recommend the tasting room.
Good to know: During the summer months they sell their Summer Ale in tallboy cans.
