About Brewery and Beer-Tasting Tour in Brooklyn

Learn about Brooklyn’s beer-brewing past and present on a guided walking tour of a local brewery and the history-rich neighborhood in which it’s located. Brooklyn was a beer-brewing capital for much of the 1900s, but all of the 40+ breweries that existed in the borough pre-1970 have disappeared. Find out why, and what is causing them to return, as your local guide leads you on a brewery tour and a walk through the neighborhood of Williamsburg.

At the turn of the century, Brooklyn was considered a ‘Milwaukee of the East,’ providing a home to approximately 40 breweries. But by the early 1970s, labor costs, prohibition and technological improvements caused every one of them to lock their doors and leave town. Over the past few years, new breweries have started popping up and are reinventing the crafts of their ancestors. Discover the story in depth as you follow your local guide on a walking tour through one of Brooklyn's favorite local breweries, where you’ll take an exclusive tour and sample the delicious brew.

Next, head to the birthplace of Brooklyn's brewing scene, where you’ll explore some of the historic 19th-century buildings that once housed brewing operations. Hear stories from your guide about the German immigrants that brewed the beer and lived in the neighborhood. Then visit the Church of Most Holy Trinity – St Mary, a beautiful church dating back to the mid-18th century. After, enjoy a full lunch (included) at a traditional pizza shop that uses the freshest ingredients.

Your final stop brings you to a friendly neighborhood bar to sample several more local brews.
