We did not do the tour as we have done enough brewery tours in the last year or two but I expect that some day we will go back and do the tour. We know how beer is made but every place offers some history or interesting nuggets about how their process is different.
The tastings work as follows: you buy tokens for $5 a piece or 5 for $20; each token gets you one beer; each beer is a full beer. At $5 in NYC that is certainly a good value but I didn't particularly like this set-up. I would prefer to have actually tasting sizes which would enable me to try more beers than try to drink full beers. The beer is good.
The tasting room is very large. There are a number of picnic tables set up. We were lucky to get there when a tour was still in session and there were seats available, however, 15 minutes after we got there a tour let out, more people came in off the streets and the place was PACKED. From what I understand, the place can get really crowded and rowdy. It wouldn't matter if you had a seat but it would probably be really annoying if you paid for a tour and couldn't easily get your beer tasters and enjoy them. When we were visiting the brewery had 2 food vendors selling pretzels and such which was nice.
I would definitely recommend a stop if you are into beer.
