The Brooklyn Brewery is the first New York City company to use 100% wind-generated electricity. They recycle spent grain, sending it to a facility in NJ that turns it into pig feed, and to the Queens County Farm Museum that feeds it to their chickens and pigs and also uses it as compost. They also recycle all paper, plastic, and bottles as well as hot water from the brewhouse and they use compostable cups in their tasting room. All of their cold and hot pipes are insulated with high-tech foamglass insulation and the warehouse that holds their beer before it ships has solar panels on the roof that provide about 1/3 of their total power needs. The brewery is in the process of installing a new, more efficient brewhouse that reuses heat vapors, recycles even more hot water, uses an external wort boiler that is more efficient, and features more efficient wort chillers. The Brewery supports non-profit fundraisers, arts organizations, and hosts community events.

Open: Friday 6pm –11pm, Saturday 12pm – 8pm, Sunday 12pm – 6pm
