It’s written in a pretty notebook I bought when I realized if I wanted to get to all the breweries by the end of summer I had to get organized. My plan for this night was two breweries, one before knitting and one after. This is the before brewery, Folksbier Brewery.

My memory is a little hazy since it has been a while since I was there, but my impression is that the brewery is rather small. I do remember they had beer named Glow Up on the menu, their website describes them “A Berliner-style weisse with an ample wheat body and soured using Lactobacillus for a tart, sour finish. We then age the Glow Up base beer over seasonal fruit, adding a pleasant sweetness.” Since they are wheat beers I didn’t try any. The night I was there they had Strawberry, watermelon was on the list but not ready yet. A fact a couple of people were rather upset about. They don’t serve flights here, maybe because they don’t have a lot of beers (I seem to remember there were 6 taps), however you can get a taste of any beer you want. The brewery is actually next to the taproom, I didn’t ask for a tour or if I could see the tanks, I hadn’t gotten that bold by this point.

No kitchen but they have a light snack menu of pretzels and a few varieties of cheese. You tell the server what cheese you want, I think I also got mustard with the pretzel. If you don’t like French bulldogs you might want to steer clear of this place, there are two of them and they kind of run the place, kind of fitting since their humans are the owners.

Overall a nice low key place with good beer and friendly service. This brewery is in the Carroll Gardens section of Brooklyn. I took all these pictures because of how cute the neighborhood is.

About Belleza

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES. I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes. I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads.. I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet. And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
