For me this is the best of the greater Park Slope area craftbeer bars (and their are many). The place has a great look and atmosphere...as someone else said...laid out a bit like Vol de Nuit. The staff here is really great...and the dťcor...pretty cool. What really sets this place apart is the beer selections. The afternoon I was there I was able to enjoy the beers leftover from the Hudson Valley beer night a couple of days prior. These were fantastic beers from Newburgh, Peekskill, and a couple of other small breweries up the river. I as able to try 8 of them with two flights or four beers each...only problem was there were ten I needed to try...no problem...they gave me the last two flight size beers for free! The day I visited I also hit 3 other nearby craft bars...but this was the best by far. Definitely worth a special trip.

First off let me say that I love the atmosphere of this place. Kind of broken up into 3 rooms with bar in back room. One room has a glass ceiling which makes for great daytime drinking. No food, but that seems to be on par for Brooklyn. Draft selection was very solid with some rarely seen on tap brews. Bartender was quick and pretty knowledgeable. Bar has a cool vibe with dim lighting and good music. Loved this place.

This place is in a nice industrial garage. It looks pretty similar to Vol de Nuit in terms of set-up, except that it has a pretty cool glass ceiling, so I can imagine that it would be pretty cool for day drinking. The draft selection is pretty good, and it is actually rather cheap. You can get pints of goblets for 5 or 6 dollars, so in NY that is a pretty good deal. The bartender knew what was up and was quite pleasant to talk to. Basically, this is a pleasant place close to the R train.

Great bar in an up and coming part of BK. Dive-y. Cool people. Fast bartenders. You can order in mexican food from across the street. The draft list was excellent last night. They had an Avery event recently and had a stellar line-up of that including Nineteenth Anniversary and all three of the Demon series! Thay also had a BFM on draught and a cask of Wandering Star Mild at Heart. Awesome.

Pretty cool setup for daytime drinking at least. Nice draft list, leans local (Barrier, etc). Some other interesting stuff too. Worth a stop if in the area.

Came here for the Where the Wild Beers Are event. Very interesting layout. You walk down a tunnel sort of space, enter into an area open to the sky, with an area for some tables and such (this is where the event mostly took place), and then you can enter into the bar proper. In the summer and warmer times of the year I can imagine this being a wonderful location. This particular day, the tunnel acted like a wind tunnel, streaming icy autumn air at us all, so it was a bit cold. Inside at the bar though was warm and toasty, so Iíd be interested to see how it works out in the dead of winter, given that they havenít been open through one yet. Prices inside were reasonable and the service was good. Big thanks for hosting the event, and Iíll have to stop back sometime on a less crowded day.

A big new place in Brooklyn with a surprisingly nice selection. Nice cheap prices as well. Very loud. They had some very cool super-old bottles in with the liquor that were fun to check out; not for drinking, obviously, but I always dig the old stuff.

Large, cavernous industrial space that just open up on 4th Ave in Brooklyn. Itís a little haul south of 2 other very nice beer bars, so itís a nice addition to the neighborhood. The bar is at the back of a very long, narrow area. There is a large semi-enclosed outdoor area that was packed the night we were there even though it was pretty damn cold and windy. The selection is very good for a place that is just opening up with a selection of local and import stuff at prices that are quite fair for the area as well.
The bartenders were very busy, but they were efficient. Didnít get a chance to ask very much about the place and it was so busy I doubt Iíd have gotten much info anyway, but theyíre off to a good start. Iíd like to see what itís like in here earlier in the day.
