This is one deal we can raise a glass to.

During a beer crawl through Williamsburg and Greenpoint, you can sample 12 different brews — a $72 value for only $30.

The website BeerMenus.com put together the tour in a nod to Brooklyn’s brewery-packed past, and a celebration of its beer-rich present.

“With the recent influx of beer gardens in Brooklyn, we decided to celebrate outdoor drinking and Brooklyn’s rich history of German beer,” said Will Stephens, the website’s co-founder. “Williamsburg and Greenpoint has a modern-day Brewer’s Row, if you will.”

Here’s how it works: On June 25 and 26, pick up your pub crawl pass, map and tasting notes at Mug’s Ale House. Grab a pint of Radeberger Pils, then head to 11 more bars within a 12-block radius, picked for their German selection and outdoor seating. Participants include Berry Park and its picturesque rooftop, the Bushwick Country Club, Loreley Williamsburg and tdb, all of which you can visit at your leisure until the last drop is drunk.

No matter how enthusiastic you are about beer, 12 brews is a lot for one sitting, so it might be best to make this a two-day tour, and one you’ll remember.

Beer crawl starting at Mug’s Ale House [125 Bedford Ave. at N. 10th Street in Williamsburg, (718) 486-8232], June 25 and 26 from 11:30 am-6 pm. Tickets $30. For info, visit www.beermenus.com.
