It’s last call at the Brooklyn Historical Society.

The landmark Brooklyn Heights museum been hosting a laid-back beer garden all summer long on its outdoor patio — and the final soiree is Aug. 25.

“We wanted to take advantage of this beautiful building and make it as accessible as possible,” said Society spokeswoman Keara Duggan. “Having music and beer invites people who might not otherwise know we’re here.

For this last installment, enjoy Brooklyn Brewery beverages and bluegrass tunes from the Get Down Boys and BBox Radio, which went through the museum to find inspiration, said Duggan.

You can also head indoors for your own inspiration, too, and explore the museum’s current exhibitions: “Inventing Brooklyn: People, Places, Progress,” “Painting Brooklyn Stories of Immigration and Survival” and “Home Base: Memories of the Brooklyn Dodgers at Ebbets Field.” Be sure to raise a (figurative) glass to Jackie, Pee Wee and Duke.

Brooklyn Brewery Beer Garden at the Brooklyn Historical Society [128 Pierrepont St. between Clinton and Henry streets in Brooklyn Heights, (718) 222-4111], Aug. 25 at 7 pm. Free admission (drinks $5). For info, visit
