Brooklyn Brewery is located in the heart of Williamsburg and they offer tours and tastings on Fridays and Saturdays. They run a fierce operation and it is undoubtedly the best local beer. They have a great NY history lesson that is worth the tour, so put one back for Brooklyn! (Can you really say no to free beer?) 'L' train to Bedford, walk from 7th to 11th and take a left. Walk to Whythe.
