I visited midweek at opening time. This is a cool pub with a friendly bartender and patrons. I felt welcomed as soon as I arrived. The tap list is solid - nothing mind bending but good options. I happened to gain great insight into the local area due to folks in the bar, giving a real local’s pub vibe. Good banter and worth a trek out here.

Visited just after dinner on a Tuesday. Dark, dark wood bar as you enter, bar stools up front, tables in the back. The bar was mostly full of a good crowd when I arrived. The friendly, engaging, knowledgeable bar tender more or less immediately worked me into the conversation that was going on, which I appreciated. Tap selection was not crazy rare or vast, but was well chosen, and there were easily 4-5 beers I wanted to have. Bottle selection was quite good. I loved the vibe in this place, and felt right at home - easily would be my local if I lived in the area. Evidently people go nuts for the free popcorn.

82 = ★★★½ (Solid place, near the top of the list for locals and visitors)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

A spot that I used to frequent frequently when I lived here and popped in for another quick pint while I was staying in the neighborhood recently. A well-selected and ever changing list, this has a cozy bar area up front and a nice multi-level patio out back. Happy hours are decent and the bartenders are usually knowledgeable. I think I like Pacific Standard a bit better, but you’ll find plenty to like here as well.

We stopped in here for a few afternoon beers and I was quite impressed by the selection. There are quite a few really good beer bars in this area, but this one is one of the best. They had a good number of beers on tap that I had not seen on previously at other bars around the city, which is always nice to find. the bartender was friendly and provided good service. I didn’t see food (other than the free popcorn) but I also didn’t look or ask either. Seemed the backyard would be nice in warmer weather as well, though it wasn’t particularly appealing when it was 37 and snowing...

This was my 3rd of 4 area craftbeer bars visited on a Saturday afternoon. For me it was the second best (you’ll have to read my other reviews to see which I liked best) but this was a close second. This place had a really good selection...some unusual beers...and really nice people working there. They were helpful with the selections and samples. This place gets pretty crowded and can be hard to move around in (not much room between the bar and aisle) but it is a must stop on any craftbeer tours in this neighborhood.

Came here solely to get two beers figuring I’d drink them and be gone. Ended up staying about two hours. I got in right at opening, and had hung out at Pacific Standard basically next door until then. That there are two nice beer bars so close that get along and are happy to have each other near is nice. Cold when I arrived, but it was me and the bartender for the first 45 minutes at least, and he’d been in maybe 5 minutes longer than I. He was happy to pour samples of things and was quite knowledgeable about what was on tap and glad to talk beer for a while. Nice place, interesting bottle list and some nice taps.

Been here a few times. Small bar with 20 or so tap lines and some bottles. Friendly staff every time I visit. No half pours. Outdoor area which is nice.

When I visited: Late September 2013. What I had: Left Hand Oktoberfest on tap, Blue Point Croxley’s 20th Anniversary Red Ale on cask, a couple sauvignon blancs for the Mrs., popcorn to snack on. What I liked: Dimly-lit, laidback atmosphere at the bar with a weird, almost gypsy-like decor, nice cosmopolitan crowd, awesome music, quick and friendly service from the bartender who made great recos for places to eat, impressive draught list with many well-known crafters as well as some rarities, decent wine options, fair prices. What I disliked: We were disappointed that they didn’t have any food available and had to go elsewhere to eat, but we had a lot of fun here so it was all good. Would I go back? Absolutely. This is a stellar neighbourhood pub with a cool vibe and killer beer menu. Overall Rating: 78

Stopped in for a couple a pints. Semi-friendly clientele and staff, the usual for the area. Selection was OK. Loud and noisy as expected; hipster Northern vibe is tolerable. Pricy and overall not worth a return visit.

This is starting to become the "it" bar in Brooklyn for me. They are getting great taps right now and the place is never packed. Good but small bottle list with a few special bottles here and there. The service is usually good at the bar. Fast without a problem. I have been here a few times in the past 2 years (more often recently). Free popcorn is always nice. Place is dark but comfy. Plus you are 3 doors away from Pacific Standard, so you have numerous chooses when here. I recommend this bar if you are looking for a bar in Brooklyn but not in Williamsburg.
