We report the discovery of a binary composed of two brown dwarfs, based on the analysis of the microlensing event OGLE-2016-BLG-1469. Thanks to the detection of both finite-source and microlens-parallax effects, we are able to measure both the masses M1 ~ 0.05 M(soalr mass) and M2 ~ 0.01 M(soalr mass), and the distance DL ~ 4.5 kpc, as well as the projected separation a^ ~ 0.33 au. This is the third brown-dwarf binary detected using the microlensing method, demonstrating the usefulness of microlensing in detecting field brown-dwarf binaries with separations of less than 1 au.
