Brooklyn Brewery

Located within walking distance of the heart of Brooklyn's Williamsburg area, Brooklyn Brewery produces craft beers like its famed Brooklyn Brown, and is open most days into the early evening (for real nightlife, head to one of Williamsburg's many bars). Sign up for a "small batch tour" ($15) to get the insider's view of the brewery's operations (and a chance to taste four beers). The tours aren't massive groups, so sign up early before the spots are gone.
