This is a pretty cool place to go at the end of the night. They have a good selection but I didnít take advantage of it because I was too busy playing barcadeís arcade games.

cool bar. I wonít go into the video games or decor as it has already been well documented. Had a good time here, would recommend to beer geeks and non beer geeks alike.

Great great place and along with Hop Devil my favorite bar in New York! The tap list was amazing with 20-25 different available including Dogfish, Vitory, Stone etc. etc. Great interior with a bunch of retro arcade games. Friendly and knowledge service as well!

This place is probably my favourite bar in New York right now. Lots of taps that are very quickly cycled through. The place itself is pretty cool with loads of old arcade games around the perimeter of a converted garage. Cavernous space with assorted brewerania covering the walls. Quite divey, but Iím a fan of that as well. You wonít get the selection of killer Belgian stuff available up the road at Spuyten Duyvil, but youíll get well cared for American micros at a very reasonable price.

A very cool bar lined with old arcade games which seem to be very popular amongst the youngish crowd who was hanging out here on a Friday night. The place was packed, and the few seats already taken, of course. More than 3/4 of people had to stand, which I find tiresome for a beer session. The atmosphere though is unique, and moreover the beer selection is top notch. 24 taps filled with known and obscure goodies, many of which werenít to be seen in the New York area that weekend. A great place for a few tasty pints or a group party. Iíll definitely be back next time Iím in Brooklyn.

Besides for the hard to find beers, this place is a must. They have all the great 1980s arcade games lined around the perimeter of the place, the beers are priced fairly, and the snacks like beer nuts and pretzels are only a buck. I have a lot of fun here, and you can bring friends or other people that you know that arenít beer geeks, theyíll have fun too.

This is a pretty amazing concept... classic 1980ís arcade games and ...beers. I was so psyched when I heard about it, and it lived up to all the hype. A pretty good selection on tap. I loved the fact that there were little wooden "shelves" next to each game, to give you a place to rest your beer. An awesome place, no question about it.

i love this pla. ce. The idea is you can get a beer and play any of the old quarter video games that are available in the bar. Centipede, Space Invaders. Video games big plus. Great beer and cask selection. They have one cask engine. Lots of room to sit inside. Nice friendly staff who know a lot about their beer. Walking distance to other Brooklyn bars.

Finally went here for the first time yesterday on my own private Brooklyn brew tour. Big warehouse or mechanic shop turned into a bar/arcade. Really high ceilings. lots of room. sitting area outside in the front. Cool cap design on a wall. Lots of old school arcades for a quarter (i loved that part). They only have taps, which only seems to be craft beer. Nothing foreign. One cask, the stuff they get is pretty rare. I like their snacks (jerky, beer nuts, and chips) which were all like a buck each, which is great. Plus you are within walking distance of Sputen, Mugs, and Brooklyn Brewery.
