Start your walking tour around midday in Brooklyn's Williamsburg area, where you'll meet your guide. Your first stop takes you into a favorite local brewery for a tour of the facilities and a tasting of some of its new or popular beers.

From there, walk over to see a group of 19th-century buildings that once housed Brooklyn's best brewing operations. Learn some history from your guide about the German immigrants who once lived, and brewed, in this section of Brooklyn. Then stop by the Most Holy Trinity–St. Mary, a picturesque church that was built in the mid-18th century.

Take a break from your walking for a full lunch (included) at a local pizzeria that is known for its fresh ingredients. End your Brooklyn beer walking tour at a local watering hole, where you'll have a chance to sample a few more local brews.

Our guide Verbena was great from our first stop to our last she gave us the history of each place as well as the area these places were located in. All the places we visited except for the brewery were places where the locals go so the average tourist would probably not go there.Highly recommend this tour and if you are lucky you will get our guide.

It was pretty freezing outside but our tour was let in early which was great. Our guide Josh was really knowledgeable and had a great enthusiasm for the brewery. It helped also that the staff member who gave the tour was so funny and very informative. We had some great beers at the brewery itself, then onto amazing pizza and a few other bars and more beers. Cannot recommend this highly enough as you also get to experience a taste of Brooklyn which you might not otherwise see and places you might never know about

My son and I had a great time learning about the different beers. Our tour guide was knowledgeable,fun and made the information interesting. We were very surprised to learn that my sons first appartment in Brookline was in the original brewery neighborhood. I would absolutely take another tour from you company.

A tour, not just of the brewery itself but of the brewing district of early Brooklyn. The sociology of the brewing industries effects and contributions to community development is fascinating. Then read Colm Tiobin's "Brooklyn" if you are interested in the early immigrants coming alive for you.
