I get this magical feeling in my tummy when I think of the meat at Fette Sau, and then I get mad that Iím not eating it now. Oh, they have a decent tap list too.

We started our Brooklyn pub crawl with lunch at Fette Sau where I gave into temptation and ordered 1/4lb of bacon ends, 1/3lb of pulled pork shoulder, 1/3lb of brisket, 1 beef rib, and 4 pork ribs, plus beans and potato salad. In hindsight, that is a LOT for two people. The small order of beans alone is a fair bit of food! It was all great, though I was a bit disappointed by the beef ribs, which I have decided just arenít for me. The pulled pork was delicious on wee fresh buns with a selection of sauces, and the bacon ends were sinfully rich. Pearl later advised that if you are getting sides ordering no more than 1/2lb of meat per person is probably a good guideline. Oops! :) They also have a solid craft beer selection, we enjoyed some Barrier Queen of Tarts (which I loved) and their house beer Fette Brau (which is decent but comparatively simple). Its a relatively small space with communal tables inside and more outside on the patio. Canít recommend this place enough based on the food, but very glad we got there for opening rather than having to stand in the LONG line that formed while we ate. Itís not super cheap, the large amount of food and beer set us back a decent amount but it was well worth it.

Fette Sau is a BBQ joint in Brooklyn on Metropolitan Ave. The entrance is past a neon sign and somewhat sketchy looking patio.

The interior is small and opens immediately to the line leading up to the counter where orders are placed. There is a small bar in the back and table seating throughout the rest of the floor. Cast iron bar stools, hanging lights and brick walls. Large butcher diagrams adorn the wall opposite the counter. Behind the bar is a white tile wall with the beer list written on a board above. The focal point are the awesome tap handles made out of various butcher tools, including many knives.

The beer selection consists of around 10 draughts, including some NY breweries like Barrier (who makes the house "Fette Brau"), Greenport Harbor, Kelso and Singlecut. Various sizes are available including 1/2 pints.

You donít come to this place for the beer though, you come for the BBQ and it did not disappoint. Orders are placed by weight and sides are added. The various meats I had were incredible and the variety of sauces were all great. Some of the best BBQ I have had in a while as a matter of fact.

Service both at the food counter and at the bar was good. Again the focus is not on beer here but the bartender was knowledgeable about their menu and offered suggestions.

Overall I would visit this place again in a heartbeat due to the great food and solid beer choices.

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.
