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.

Like a Reese’s this place is two tastes in one. Awesome american brews and all of the 80’s video games you were addicted to as a kid. What more can you want, well maybe a pizza, and the bartenders are happy to order that up for delivery as well. Add in the hard to find brews they have on tap here and the laid back Brooklyn vibe and you cant ask for much more.

The regular bartenders are friendly and
knowledgeable, though the occaisonal
substitute may be neither. The selection
is always good, and often enough -
during special events, for example -
it is completely great. Best in the
uncrowded late afternoon, early evening.
A very good place.

Former machine shop converted into a grungey but airy, loft-like bar. Vintage (mostly eighties?) video arcade machines ring the perimeter along with a couple of pinball machines and a pool table. Service was friendly and knwlegeable and willing to chat about the bar and the beers and even the video games. Excellent tap selection showcases mostly local breweries and a few were real gems. This is definitely aplace I can see myself returning to as often as possible.

This was my last stop, after visiting Mug’s Ale House and Spuyten Duyvil and I was pretty drunk by then. I didn’t end up rating, mainly because I was having to much fun playing video games, but also because there wasn’t anything on draught that I was dying to rate. The draught selection was nice however, with notables such as Southampton Pumpkin and Hair of the Dog Fred. Being very close to the metro stopped helped to. A fun bar, but I do wish the video games would have been a bit more modern.

this place is cavernous and dark, which isn’t too common for fancy beer bars. I loved the old school video games b/c they are the only ones I’m good at/remember. the music selection is good "neuvo wave" (that new style that is repackaged 80s music), but it bounces off the walls too much. the beer selection is very good, but they served me a SH imperial stout ice cold. lots of cute Williamsburg indie nerd chickies, so if you’re single, help one pick a brew!

Much like communism, this place works much better in theory than in practice - a beer bar with old arcade games sounds great, but once you actually play them, you realize the following: 1. you suck at them 2. they weren’t all that great to begin with - aside from this, the beer selection is pretty good, though not any better than most other beer bars in the city - the fact that it is a five minute walk from Spuyten Duyvil is either a help or a hinderance, I still don’t know which - the croud is mostly trendy, college-age folks, most of whom aren’t that beer educated - however, the huge space, decent selection, and kitchy atmoshpere make it a fun place to visit.

Visited early on a rainy saturday afternoon and the place was a ghost town. Good selection of classic games were definitely more fun to imagine beforehand than once actually paying for them. However, the tap list was excellent and thoughful, the prices were alright. Had Sixpoint SMP and Foghorn (thanks Mike) and both were in great shape but served too cold. Nice seating outside, too. Not the prettiest neighborhood in Brooklyn.

Great little place in Brooklyn with a solid selection of drafts and 80’s video games. Service is great, beers served in correct style glasses, young crowd. All-around nice spot.

No bottles, all taps, but hand-picked with genuine professionalism. Mostly stuff I had never had, perfect for the casual visitor and probably always fresh. No food offered. Dark hangar look, looking like nothing form the outside, not necessarily my type, but interesting and original for the traveller. Knowledgeable, friendly bartenders. At times good music, mostly old classics. A very pleasant spot to hang out, especially before heading to spuyten.
