Williamsburg, Brooklyn is now a Hipster Mecca! Home to Brooklyn Cupcake, we must give kudos to our compatriot, Brooklyn Brewery! BB is the first successful commercial brewery in NYC since Schaefer & Rheingold. Today, they are among America’s top 40 breweries and Brooklyn Lager is among the top draft beers in NYC. Brooklyn Brewery has now expanded into the building next door to its existing facility at 79 North 11th Street. This new $8 million Brew House boosts Brooklyn Brewery’s local production capacity from 12,000 barrels per year to 120,000 barrels. The excitement over Brooklyn’s growth was shared with Mayor Bloomberg who cut the ribbon at the expansion party. Brooklyn Brewery is currently providing modified tours of their facility where you will learn company lore, brewing basics and get a sneak peek at their new space.
