As a community-centered brand, Brooklyn Brewery first introduced Brooklyn Sound in 2018 to create live music experiences in independent venues with musicians exemplifying NYC’s unique and diverse music scene. This most recent iteration of the Brooklyn Sound series builds on the Brewery’s dedication to providing opportunities that bring people together to enjoy good times and delicious brews, all while supporting the reemergence of Brooklyn’s nightlife, venues, and local artists.

“We draw a ton of cultural inspiration from our community, and music is a huge part of that,” explains US Marketing Director Mildred Lee. “NME has been a respected discovery platform for music for a long time, and they’ve been hugely instrumental in breaking new talent over the years. We are thrilled to partner with them to bring Brooklyn Sound back to our home borough, where we’ll be presenting a curated line-up of incredible musicians in three of Brooklyn’s most loved venues.”

Throughout the years, Brooklyn Sound has featured some immensely talented rising musical artists, including Sunflower Bean, Lightning Bolt, Chk! Chk! Chk!, Ho99o9, and Mutoid Man. This newest iteration of the series will continue that tradition with a wide mix of exciting up-and-coming bands and solo performers.

Benedict Ransley, Head of Marketing at NME Networks says, “As NME’s on-the-ground presence in North America grows, we’re excited to collaborate with Brooklyn Brewery on Brooklyn Sound; a set of exclusive shows that will deliver free live music experiences in some of the borough’s most iconic venues. The NME curated line-up stretches from R&B to Indie-Pop, reflecting the spirit and diversity of Brooklyn and promising to deliver three unforgettable nights of exceptional music for our collective audiences.”

Guests can RSVP in advance for free at, but should arrive for each show early, as entry will be granted on a first come, first served basis, dependent on capacity. Brooklyn Brewery will be supplying tasty brews and more surprise giveaways at each show.
