Bitter & Esters, located in Brooklyn’s lovely and easily accessible Prospect Heights neighborhood, hosts a dynamic and unique event experience that isn’t available anywhere else in New York City. At our private events, you can be a part of the Craft Beer movement, learn a new skill in brewing, and share your appreciation of beer in a fun, informal, and educational setting. Brewing beer at our facility allows a focused activity for the group while allowing plenty of “down time” for socializing or team building activities.

Our events and recipes are completely customizable, including customizing your own corporate or personal brand of beer. Examples of our events include corporate events, team building, birthday parties, leadership gatherings, and bachelor/bachelorette parties. You can also brew beer with your friends and family to give as gifts or serve at your own events, such as weddings. We offer private outdoor space as well, weather permitting.
