New Brew Friday- Folksbier Brewing

Today's New Brew Friday we're heading just a few blocks north of Other Half to check out Folksbier in Carroll Gardens.

This new little brewery is quite possibly the cutest little log cabin I've ever seen.  It's what I'll refer to as "Brooklyn Rustic" with an open window overlooking a garden out front with a view of brownstones in the distance.

Wood panels and picnic tables fill the long tasting room with gorgeous detailing of animals etched onto the tops of the bar stools.

The tasting room has a mix of ales, German style pilsners and some fruit forward Berliners on draft.   I tried out Recurring Dreams 6 & 7; both tasty Oat Pale Ales the first finished with Lemon Drop and Wakatu hops and the second with Citra & Mosaic.  

Folksbier has a small list of cheese and pretzels just perfect for enjoying alongside some fresh beers. We came here after a particularity crazy release at Other Half and the quiet rustic ambiance was exactly the kind of calming break we needed. Cheers to the weekend!
