Visited with fellow RateBeerian on 5th July 2013. Spacious rectangular bar affording plenty of at-the-bar seating. Friendly staff and a pleasant atmosphere although pub was emptyish for a Friday night on account of regulars being away for extended Independence Day celebrations. I enjoyed Anchor Liberty ale amongst others from a fair range. I enjoyed the "Poboy catfish sliders" from an imaginative food menu prepared in the backyard of the pub. It was nice of the chef to come over to us and chat about their recipes, lovely touch. A good spot, I would happily return.

Brooklyn DBA is the upmarket brother of the Bowery one - expect toilets with a seat !!! Decent selection on tap - largely east coast micros and a few others. 2 cask lines - maintained by Alex Hall so always in great nick, had one of his Wandering Star beers (Dark Mild) there on my last visit (March í11). Good vibe and friendly service - have visited by lunchtime (fairly quiet) and on a Saturday night when packed full. Single room, wooden floors, courtyard at the rear.

Conveniently located near the Bedford subway station. Cosy pub, small-medium size, sits about 100 but with a lot of standing space because the tables are spread out. Nice patio in the back. They had 16 taps + 3 casks when I was there. Focus on NY craftbeers and east-coast in general with some classics and some interesting finds (small batches, one-offs, etc.). Defiants, Sly Fox, etcÖ Many beers I had never seen before. I had Defiant Oatmeal Stout on cask. The place felts more like friendly neighbourhood bar than the more trendy hipster hangout d.b.a. Manhattan location. I will go back there.

Great selection, especially European beers. Beautifully uncrowded patio on a Friday evening. Sweet, helpful bartender. Reasonable prices a touch on the high side.

I like it as a bar. large indoors with a good patio. Itís not trying to hard in a neighborhood that often tries to hard. Plus they have a really respectable beer list by most standards...but the rub with both d.b.aís is that if you donít have 3 back-ups to your bottle choice you may have to go back to the board. The bar tenders more often than not canít find what I ask for. Itís an easy place to go with non beer nerd friends so you donít get too geeky but are happy with what you have to drink.

I was ben4321ís out of town friend. Decent draft selection, nothing to crazy to make me go out of my way, but an always reliable spot.

decent tap list, big bottle list. Wandering Star, Founders porter, bunch of jolly pumpkin bottles. Ok ambiance. good prices $15 for a JP 750 vs $27 at Spuyten Duyvil

Swung in here last weekend while taking a friend from out-of-town to see Williamsburg. It is a very solid place. Quite similar to the Manhattan version. The draft list was decent, nothing rare, but a nice broad spectrum. Rather empty at our time of visiting (right after dinner on a Saturday night). It wasnít the right weather, but it looked like they had a nice patio here as well, which is generally my favorite part of the Manhattan version. Iíd revisit, but only if in the area, itís certainly not a destination establishment.

Absolutely love this place. Pretty great selection, despite a relatively slow rotation. A nice outdoor patio for good weather days. Good prices for Brooklyn. Service is good despite a less than knowledgeable staff for a beer bar. Most importantly, a great music selection. You will be missed, Ray.

Iíve been here a few times now. Selection has been good both times, and have picked up some missing Cap Lawrence ticks. But given the high ratings, Iíve been a bit let down. Perhaps itís that the place gets very crowded, even though thereís limited seating. I should come back during a quieter time, and maybe during one of their cask fests.
