Folksbier Tasting Room


Proudly Serving nyc

Located in the Carroll Gardens neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY, we opened the Folksbier Tasting Room in January of 2017.  Our tasting room is connected to our brewhouse located directly next door. 

Our tasting room has become a destination for beer lovers and families alike, with seven rotating tap lines that feature our most fresh selections accompanied by a light snack menu with pretzels and cheeses.  Our spacious atmosphere can comfortably accommodate parties of all sizes.

Folksbier Hopyard

In 2014, we began planting our own hops on the Folksbier Family Farm in Northern Michigan. Just north of the 45th Parallel, in Harbor Springs, MI, we have cordoned off a square acre of farmland dedicated to growing a number of different hops for our exclusive use. Ranging from American Pacific Northwest to Traditional Noble Hop varieties, these hops will provide a one-of-a-kind quality to every beer we make.

We have a range of different varieties, including German noble hops such as Hallertau (pictured above) and American varieties such as Cascade and Chinook.

2017 Hop Training

Every hop bine needs to be individually wrapped to train its growth upwards. Here, Mel Kauffman winds a hop bine clockwise around the rope trellis.



"...King County’s kaiser of clean, refreshing and palatable Alpine-influenced ales and lagers." 
“The Absolute Best... Once you’ve arrived at Folksbier, you’re here for the long haul.”
"Folksbier’s beers aim for drinkable balance."
