In 1929 The Amsterdam Brewery opened it’s doors at the very exact spot where The Beer Castle stands today. The Brewery was one of the first local breweries away from the hustle and bustle of the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn. It stood as a neighborhood landmark for almost four decades before being closed down in the early seventies as the neighborhood was going through changes. Preserving the history of the old brewery and the classic service it provided the community was one of the main motivations and inspirations behind opening “The Beer Castle” for the original and current owner Michael and his family. Since it’s founding in 1987, “The Beer Castle” has done it’s best to fill the void left by the classic old breweries of the past generations.
But even that was not easy, in 1992, “The Beer Castle” was engaged in a heated battle by the “White Castle” burger franchise because both businesses shared the word Castle in their name. It was a heated debate which went on for several years, but Michael had eventually beat the case and retained the widely respected “The Beer Castle” name.
To this day The Beer Castle continues it’s tradition of excellence and quality just like they have from day one, so come in because “At The Beer Castle You Are a King & Queen and We Treat You Like Royalty!”
