Since opening in 1988 with its signature Brooklyn lager, this Williamsburg microbrewery has become one of the best breweries in New York State. The space offers reservation-only brewery tours, and the warehouse-like bar serves all of the brand’s ten-plus beers, plus seasonal pours like summer and pumpkin ales. It’s good for groups, but know that tables can’t be reserved ahead of time.
