Not sure why this beer is marketed and sold as a Lager. Its taste to me is much more reminiscent of a Palestinian Ale. The aftertaste is bitter and very hops-like. That said, it's a decent to solid beer to enjoy if Pale Ales are your thing.

Visited during the NYC Marathon. My wife was running the race, and the route passed within blocks of Brooklyn Brewery, one of my fave New World breweries. Although they weren't offering Local 1 or 2 (not really surprising),
they were pouring the Sorachi Ace, which was an excellent "on tap" opportunity for me. Staff was friendly and helpful, even for Brooklyn (New Yorkers, you know what I mean). Highly recommended stop, especially if you are NYC Marathon watching.....convenient to NYC Subway.

I really liked the tour here, I was lucky enough that the tour guide had his family present so he was doing an outstanding performance. It was also free. The beer is good but not fantastic. One of my favorite tours.

Sorry, but for a place with the reputation (and quality of beers) that Brooklyn has, I expected more. On a Saturday afternoon (I know), a 40 minute wait to get in. Then, the "buy your beer tokens" line. Then, another 15 minutes in the "buy your beer" line. We bought two rounds on our one trip through the line just to avoid going in the line again. Almost zero interaction with the staff unless you're taking the tour. Unbelievably loud. Glad I did it; they had some cool unexpected beers; but just too much time and aggravation for too little payoff.

The employees are very kind and rock. The beer selection was ok. Really wanted some bigger beers available. The bartenders hook you up and are swesome, however, they are not really craft beer nerds like a lot of us.
