I booked a guided tour through the brewery website for my husband, an avid beer drinker. We’ve visited several breweries around the world and can say this was one of the best! Whether it’s because it’s smaller and more personal I’m not sure, but it was informative and, for the price you pay, great value for money!
We had a tour of the actual brewery then a sit down session whilst being given the option to try a variety of beers. The group size was perfect and Brandon our guide was helpful.
Definitely visit!

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.

Dan was a fun and informative tour guide. We really enjoyed his story telling as we learned the interesting history of the brewery and it’s owners. After tasting several beers, we will no doubt be Brooklyn Brewery customers for life now.

Attended the 45minute small batch tour whilst on a visit to New York. The brewery was easy to find and had a great atmosphere. The booking and arrival procedure were both excellent. The guide was enthusiastic and very knowledgeable giving a clear understanding of the processes. We tried 5 different beers which was a great selection across the range. At the end of the tour we sat in a small tasting room. The whole tour and tasting lasted an hour in the end but could have been longer with all the information we got. My only downside and this is a personal one is that we tasted a very dark beer called ‘Special Ops’ which the brewery is very proud of and rightly so as the 3rd tasting. This in my view affected the tasting of two further beers an ale and IPA afterwards which were much lighter.
After the tour we retired to the main bar this was a huge area but could find a small seating area. I would recommend a visit and definitely try the various American beers some unusual to a British taste

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.

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.

Beer is great, service felt like I was in line at the Post Office. Zero explanation of why tour cancelled. Zero good vibe. Oh well, at least across the street at the pop up they have same beer (and $1 cheaper) with amazing buzz.

This felt like a rip off. Way too commercial and no love to the customers.

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.

You first have to show ID and sit for 10 minutes in order to queue again at the bar. They we're out of wooden boxes in which they serve samplers. Had to go with large glasses. Had a hazy IPA. Beer was OK. Service was fast and a bit rude. Didn't like the vide of the place although people seemed to enjoy playing board games. Maybe due to the high noise volume. The place just felt unpersonnal and touristic. I wouldn't suggest doing a detour to visit.

We have been on this tour 2 times before, and there is always some new beers to taste. Our guide, James, was very enthusiastic and gave us the best tour by far. He really made our visit a great experience. Thank you James, and hopefully you will be our guide the next time we visit NY and Brooklyn Brewery.
