Great Brooklyn craftbeer bar on Smith Street not far from a number of other classics in the same neighborhood. This one is a bit older with a lot of character. The beer selection is really great (had a red beet beer when there recently), and the staff is very helpful. The place is a bit of a dive bar but definitely in a good way. They allow dogs too...so you know their good people. This is a must stop on any Brooklyn pub crawl.

the original, the best. Consistently finding new and good stuff for the taps but maintaining old favorites. Very conscious about maintaining a great tap list. And the bartenders are always great.

While itís not my neighborhood, this is a fantastic neighborhood bar slightly in the dive-y end of the spectrum that has a an awesome easy going draft menu. The bartender was fast and playing the best tunes Iíve heard in a bar in a while. Proper. I should have come years ago. Shame on me.

A nice small pub how I like them, this is not a nice family resto-pub, this place has a true beaten up neighbourhood pub feel to it. Two small rooms with random furniture that look like the stuff people leave behind on moving day. About 20 taps with the likes of Ithaca, Sly Fox, Kelso, Middle Ages, Bear Repulic and so on. I had a Bear Republic Black Mamba. I didnít look at the bottle list, more than enough on top for me. I donít think they have real food, maybe little snacks, this is really a watering hole. Crowd was eclectic in style and age with all type of people from 21 year old to 50 year old. I liked that place. I like that type of small Ďtrue pubí with a good beer selection.

Just stopped in for a beer last Saturday. Nice little place with kickass tap selection: Mikkeler Warrior, Sculpin, Racer 5, lots more. Nice service. Decent prices. Chill atmosphere. Pretty good.

Hmm, this place was interesting. Went here for a Bear Republic event. The place has a definite dive bar feel going on with the plywood flooring, but the relaxed atmosphere and back room with a couple of pinball machines make it what appears to be a great hangout for the local young beer crowd. The bartender was friendly and patient, and even once the event got going she never seemed flustered, was always cheerful and still remarkably quick. Prices were pretty reasonable at $5 a pour (sizes varied depending on the brew) during the event, and they had some 2 for $5 special on cans and bottles for happy hour (nothing good or really worth drinking, but the trendy hipsters seemed happy enough to get two PBRs or porkslaps (Iíd probably rather have the PBR)). Got a bit hungry after running through the event list (was only 8 beers, and they essentially took down the list of everything else on tap for it, so we couldnít effectively order anything else anyhow) so we left a bit early to venture out for some food. Iíll probably be back though, seemed a neat place.

I like everything about this place except the room itís in and the people that seem to frequent it. The bartenders, the owners, the selection, the prices, the music they play, they do brewery nights... all great. The room itself is small, with low ceiling, and dull. Itís fine if you get a seat by the front windows or at the bar, but thereís not many of either so- there you have it.

May be a skewed rating due to the fact I was there on an extremely busy night and late. Place is set up like a tunnel- quite awkward and difficult to acquire a drink when densely populated. Decent selection- nothing extraordinary- though it seems youíll find the occasional rating with new arrivals and other semi-rare micros on tap. Fair prices however. I enjoyed the beer I had here, just not the crowd or the linear/tunnel-esque lay out of the place.

Went to the Brooklyn Brewery event w/ Pwn3d. Canít describe this place better than he... very crowded (due to the event?) New back room being built, just floor and walls right now... hope it comes out well! Very good beers that werenít pricey at all!
