Fun place. This was my last stop on a days crawl around Brooklyn so feeling slightly hazy and in need for food grabbed a tasty roast beef sandwich. I also ordered a pour of beer but can’t remember what. There’s a selection of bottles available in the fridges that can be perused through as well.

My second visit here (no review for the first one). This is basicly beer shop with some 14 taps and a sandwich cafe attached. Cosy "Brooklyn-style" place. Taps are quite interesting and you can sampke them at cafe. Bottle selection is ok. Some European bottles too. They seem to brew at the premises and sell occasionally own beer there. I don’t know what is the status of this brewery as I couldn’t find it from Ratebeer (no beers available when visited but one coming soon).

Quirky fun little craftbeer bar, bottle shop, and sandwich shop in Park Slope. They definitely have some great beers on tap here...including a couple of cask ales...for drinking on premises or taking home in growlers (as well as the large selection of bottles & cans). During my recent visit I was able to enjoy Troegs Nugget Nectar on "cask" no less as well as Wild Beer M.O. The food is good...I had the bratwurst...but I hear the sandwichs are great. The place is small and can definitely get crowded...and not just the communal seating area...but also the area around the small draft dispenser and payment area. All in all a worthwhile place to checkout.

Beer-geek place in Brooklyn, New York. I’ts a bar and shop. Quite a good choice, however for me too few good IPA’s and IIPA’s or good stout. The atmosphere is very nice and the staff is very helpful.

Deli/bar place we walked to based on its reputation. Interesting draft last. Eclectic and maybe overpriced bottle selection - or because I’m in NY it seemed overpriced. Sandwiches looked good, but we were still full from Mile End. Solid place for a draft, for sure.

Very nice beer store. Explain to me how this is possibly ranked below the shit hole American craft whatever. Great bottle selection, solid draft lineup. Great sandwiches . Great spot

Pretty neat spot with tons of bottles to choose from and a few dozen taps of pretty interesting stuff. Nice back patio to sit and sip at.

Visited February 2009 and again in May, 2012.

My first visit here was a bit depressing as we had flown out to see Les Paul play (timing it around EBF in Boston) but the day of the show, while we wandering around in Brooklyn, the venue called to cancel the reservation since Les had fallen the night before and hurt himself. Bedridden he caught pneumonia and died a few months later… As for Bierkraft they had a nice selection of bottles and the sandwiches were good but we couldn’t eat it there and while they had several taps to choose from they wouldn’t let us drink anything there. The taps were only for growlers.

My second trip was in 2012 and since my first visit they’ve gotten the appropriate licensing to serve beer. They’ve also added some tables and some counters. It was late when I arrived so there weren’t a lot of people in there but it was still fairly busy. No ticks to try so I got a Sierra Nevada Harvest Ale and hung out for a bit. I’m told that they’re in the process of getting a license to brew beer there too which would be pretty interesting. Nice place with a good beer selection.
