Looking for something a little different whilst in NYC? We checked out the Brewed in Brooklyn Tour from Urban Adventures – here is what we discovered….
The Brewed in Brooklyn Tour is a fantastic way to discover the craft beer scene of Brooklyn. This NYC Beer tour offers you to chance to sample delicious brews whilst learning about the history of the area and the booming beer scene!
Once home to 48 breweries, this ancient trade disappeared from the borough in the 1970s, only to boom again in the 21st century. Run by Urban Adventures, the walking tour offers the chance to go behind the scenes at how beer is made, explore the pre-prohibition era breweries that still stand and have plenty of craft beer and some classic NYC pizzas along the way. Who can say no to pizza and beer?
The Brewed in Brooklyn Tour
The tour began at Sugarburg, where we had the Bushwick Bushburg Pils from Brooklyn.
Next we strolled down to Brewers’ Row, taking in some of the old buildings that formerly held Sebastian Schnaderbach (and the lager caves), Joseph Fallert Brewery, the remains of John Schneider Brewing, and – of course – finally seeing the Edward Hittleman/Otto Huber Brewing Companies (in the same building).
At Danny’s Pizza, we enjoyed several slices (Grandma/Sicilian/Margherita) along with a Brooklyn Brewery Lager (their flagship beer from 1987).
Next, we went to The Well (inside the old Huber brewery) where we had Other Half’s Green Power DIPA.
Finally, we made it to Interboro Spirits & Ales, where we had the following flight:
- Bushburg Pils
- Saisonniere Farmhouse Ale
- Premiere Double-Dry Hopped IPA
