Brooklyn Brewery bringing headquarters, beer garden to Brooklyn Navy Yard

Bring on the brews.

Brooklyn Brewery, in conjunction with the de Blasio administration and the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation, announced on Monday, May 16 that it will bring a new brewery, headquarters and roof-top restaurant and beer garden to Brooklyn Navy Yard’s Building 77.

According to officials, the Williamsburg-based brewery has signed a 40-year lease for 75,000 square feet at the Navy Yard, joining anchor tenant Russ & Daughters, as well as Mast Brothers and Brooklyn Roasting Company, in the ground floor food manufacturing hub.

For the first time, the brewery will boast more than bratwurst, and offer up a full menu.

“Brooklyn Brewery is a welcome addition to the Yard’s growing roster, bringing along with it more than a hundred quality jobs and some of the best brews our city has to offer,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio, whose administration has invested over $100 million to transform Building 77 into a one-million-square-foot manufacturing center.

“We are very excited to be in the Navy Yard,” said Brooklyn Brewery Founder Steve Hindy. “The Navy Yard gives us a future in Brooklyn. It’s incredible to see what’s grown around us here in Brooklyn and our long-term lease at the Yard will ensure a presence in Brooklyn alongside many similar Brooklyn entrepreneurial success stories.”

Brooklyn Brewery plans to open up within the Brooklyn Navy Yard by early 2018.
