NY Mag says:
It seems like it should’ve been here for decades, but the now-famous Brooklyn Brewery has only been around since 1987, setting up shop in this ivy-colored, yellow-brick warehouse in 1996. The brewery opens its doors to the public on Friday nights, allowing visitors to imbibe surrounded by enormous vats of prized brews like Monster Ale and Brooklyn Brown. For hops aficionados, there are free hourly tours of the brewery on Saturdays (1pm-5pm) and Sundays (1pm-4pm).
