Opened in 1988 in Williamsburg, NY. Brooklyn Brewery not only makes some of the best beer in the nation, but also pays homage to its native borough with a stalwart dedication to the craft beer process brought to these shores by immigrants from Germany, Belgium and Ireland. Under the guidance of brewmaster Garrett Oliver, the team brews its signature Brooklyn Lager, along with roughly 50 different artisan beers, including Brooklyn Greenmarket Wheat, Brooklyn Best Bitter, Brooklyn Summer Ale and Brooklyn Local 1.
