Who to bring: Brooklyn fetishists from out of town, aspiring brewmasters who would enjoy the free brewery tours.

Brooklyn Brewery fun fact: Brooklyn Brewery founder Steve Hindy learned to brew his own beer when he was an Associated Press reporter stationed in the Middle East, because the Muslim culture did not permit access to alcohol.
