Cool looking spot. Narrow bar with tall, narrow bar tables running perpendicular to the axis of the main room. The walls are covered with beer shelves that are full of bottles for purchase, either to drink here or for take out. The nice thing is that you can try pours from some pricy bottles that they pour by the glass. These are usually bottles that would run 25-50 bucks and even though the pours are pricy, they are less than youíd pay for a bottle. Service is top notch and the owners are attentive without being obtrusive. It is very pricy though, so be prepared for a bit of sticker shock. Itís still kind of a cool concept though and worth checking out.

number (about 6 to 8 lines) but you are almost guaranteed to find a few unusual items. Bottle selection is where things get really interesting and also really pricey. They get a varied selection of fancy bottles. Iíve been there twice in the past few years and Iíve seen fancy imports, BFM single barrels, the ultra-pricey Baladin Xyauyý, Captain Lawrence Rosso e Marrone , and so on and so onÖ But whatís cool is that they sell beers by the glass. Every night a selection of their pricey bottles are available by the glass. Still not cheap but a lot cheaper than buying the whole bottle. They also have more affordable beers so after a few pricey sours I played safe and bought a bottle of Green Flash West Coast IPA for $5. Food is more like really fancy snacks. As as for the service, well, it might just be the best service Iíve ever had. It seems to be a brother and sister operation and they are both super friendly and they really want your visit to be memorable. This is definitely a place I will go back to.

Small but cozy place in Park Slope. 8 taps. Nice ones. And some European ones on bottles. Food seems to be good. Not very cheap. I will be back soon.

Pretty small bar in Brooklyn that offers a few rotating taps and a large, above average, bottle lineup. They also had a cask ale available when I was there (Defiant Porter). Prices were a little high for but the beer they had on tap that day werenít easy to find elsewhere. The owner and bartenders were very knowledgeable and seemingly passionate about there profession. The homemade snacks were amazing, had the jerky and dried watermelon. Iíll definitely go back next time Iím in Brooklyn.

I just wrote a long review and it was lost b/c I went over the character limit. Fucking sucks. Now you get it short and sweet. Small and Pricey but otherwise very nice. 3 taps but they are good.

Beer table...is not like any beer place Iíve been so itís hard to compare. Itís an amazing concept restaurant with everything that is great about Brooklyn represented from ingredients, menu, and style. Itís tiny...not a bar but a place to have a meal with a reservation or snacks at an off hour with one of the most obscure and carefully curated beer list Iíve ever read through. The owners are visionaries and the staff pro. A few caveats...they may not have a vegetarian option and the prices for beer are at the high end of the high end in NYC. Itís well worth it though at least as an occasion.

Now this is the first place of its kind that I have come across, altho Ithere may be more like it on the way. Because (as one online reviewer said) here they treat beer like wine. Upon seeing the simple wooden tables and modest lighting, you might think you walked into a high end sake bar and not a beer joint. The employees were friendly and helpful, even if they did seem just a little snobbish. The menu is limited, but interesting - I had some pickled pumpkin that was pretty cool. The beer selection was not big but it was very interesting, with a bunch of European beers that I had never heard of before being poured - and here is the rub - being poured for as much as $12 or so for an 8-12 ounce glass. Ouch. Still it is worth an occasional visit. Bring a date here and impress her with your good taste. Or maybe someday when every city has a few places like it, you can say you went to the first one.

A nice beer bar owned by a married couple, Justin and Tricia, who are awesome people. They have an ever-changing bottle selection organized from lightest to most intense with some really interesting stuff on the list. Service is great - Justin will discuss beers with you and is really knowledgeable. Havenít tried the food but I hear itís solid.
My one complaint is that itís pretty damn expensive. Bottle prices can be really steep and when Iíve been there, tap prices have been at least $7.

Stopped in here while visiting NYC. We ordered a few small plates (2 cheese plates, the walnuts & the beef jerky) all of which were really good. Only had a couple of beers, but chatted with the owner for a bit while we were there. Awesome spot. I will be back for sure.

Tucked in a cute section of Brooklynís Park Slope, this tiny eatery is easily overlooked. Its understated black exterior features a small sign, and that is all. Inside there are just three extended picnic tables, but Beer Tables love for good beer and food is immediately evident. The "tap" list includes a hand-picked selection of tough-to-find micros, and often features some imported sours or other unusual beers. I had Hopfenstark, De Dolle, and Captain Lawrence, for example. The food is also wonderful, served as bit-sized híorderves, all interesting and delicious. A must-go for those looking for local, creative, and very much progressive beer-based dining. My only reservation is that many of Beer Tables selections are on the pricey side.
