About Us:

Brooklyn Brew Shop started out of the Brooklyn Flea in 2009 to get space-strapped New Yorkers brewing. With the idea that making beer (real beer from real ingredients) can be simple, tasty, and most important, fun, we design stylish, easy-to-use Beer Making Kits made especially for stove-top brewing and ingredient mixes for seasonally inspired beers.

In 2016, we launched FarmSteady—a new brand designed to bring the same straightforward and approachable attitude to all things food (including growing, foraging, making and fermenting).

Our products can be found at Urban Outfitters, Macy's, Nordstrom, as well as at independently owned shops nation-wide and across the UK and Europe with new retailers being onboarded at an ever-increasing pace.

Please include a personalized cover letter with application.
