Food is incredible. One of the best BBQ places Iíve been to outside of Texas. Had a nice selection of beers on draft including Carton Boat beer. Small list, but appropriate. But youíre really going here for the food. Across the street from Spuyten.

So...is this a great beer bar that serves BBQ...or great BBQ where you can get great beer? Well itís a little of both...but I disagree with those that say itís only about BBQ. In this current race to "out tap" your competition...10 taps may not seem a lot...but quality over quantitiy will always bring me back. I thought the beers on tap when I visited today were quite nice. I had the Carton Boat (always a favorite), the Coney Island Mermaid Pilsner, & the Greenport Harbor Black Duck Porter. They also had some Captain Lawrence & some Sixpoint among others. The BBQ is of course fantastic (I recommend the brisket, the sausage links, & the burnt end beans)...which can create some long waits...so I visited early on a Sunday afternoon & was served right away. That also allowed me to enjoy the outside eating area. Iíd like to add that the bartender Lauren was very helpful and amicable. There is a very strong whiskey list & an overall nice vibe to this place. They were playing classic older songs today which was a nice touch for a laid back Sunday afternoon. All in all a great experience & a must visit.

Seriously, a beer place? Itís a mediocre BBQ place you will wait for 2 hours in line for. Yes, itís cool and it might scratch a BBQ itch. But the beer list is small and definitely not the focus.

Made a pilgrimage out here from midtown for some "local" barbeque. The brisket and beef ribs melted my soul, melted in my mouth, and melted my brain. The beer selection here is not notable and worth going out of the way for. What is worth going out your way for is this fucking delicious meat paired with appropriate fresh draft beers in an a completely hipster environment. Thatís worth every penny and every mile. And Iím looking forward to the next time I have the opportunity.

Great little stop across the street from Spuyten Duyvil. Iíd rather go here. Amazing aroma as soon as you walk in the door of delicious BBQ. Food is great, service is nice. Only 6 or so beer taps, but a pretty decent selection at that. Amazingly good bourbon collection though. If I lived around Fette Sau, Iíd be there often, mostly for bourbon and bbq.

I loved this place. A honky tonk BBQ place slash pastrami slash beer bar. Expect line ups if you arrive after 5 pm. The food is excellent, especially the brisket (close to Montreal smoked meat) and the pork belly, charred to perfection. Food is rather pricey. They have 10 taps of micro offerings (all local) served in full and half pints (or should I say, mason jars) for 6 and 3$, very decent (you can even have growlers for take out). Come with a big appetite.

Stumbled upon this place on a recent NYC trip just looking for good bbq. I was pleasantly suprised with not only some of the best bbq that money can buy but also a nice little selection of local/regional drafts at great prices. I had a half gallon of captain lawrence liqiuid gold with my dinner! Communal seating and dim lighting combined with a cramped space deem this a less than fancy atmosphere for sure but the food and beer are great. Service was fairly fast and definitely friendly...prices were very fair.

Cool vibe and awesome food but the bourbon list is the main feature here, not the beer so itís hard for me to give it a great rating. I will definitely return though.

Pretty mediocre selection, which makes this difficult to rate: the food is incredible, the atmosphere simple with the benches, though they do get crammed during busy hours. Amicable service, generous portions. Iíd eat here all the time, not sure Iíd ever drink here.

Hidden gem, our Brooklyn friend took us to. My first encounter with southern style BBQ. I simply love the food and how you can order anything by the pound (or quarter pound for that matter). Then I was even more surprised to find a draft list of 9 beers. All of them unfamiliar to me, but those we tried were all amazing. Funny how they serve them in jars instead of glasses. The place feels very authentic and is a huge success, given the line we saw on our way out (lucky we were early). If I lived in NYC, Iíd be dining here at least once a month if not every week. Authentic food, great beer, lovely atmosphere and I bet at the long tables where you just go sitting next to other people, lots of new friendships are born. Thanks to Suzy for taking us here!
