Visited in May 2012.
First off, the name and the address aren’t on this place anywhere. Actually, the only indication of the address is on the mail box. Second, the prices are out of control. $60 for a Vigeronne 750... But that is all (mostly) forgiven by the fact that the selection is awesome and so is the area in the back. The bar is small and I could see this place getting packed during peak hours but outside, under the large trees, there is plenty of room. Cool place and I would return if in the area if I wanted something the other bars in the area didn’t stock.

Cool bar and I had no problems grabbing a seat at the bar on a Tuesday evening. Taps had good local options. The bottle list was much more Belgian and Euro forward. Interesting cheese selection. Friendly lady behind the bar who was pretty chilled but in saying that it wasn’t really busy at all. Another good addition to a crawl around Williamsburg.

Small, trendy and very busy. Long bar with cozy tables crammed in. Service pretty much ignored me, maybe too busy, but typical of NYC. A few drafts and large bottle list. Prices were high and not worth it in my mind. I may give this place another chance, but this visit it didn’t tick any of my boxes.

Visited here just the once in March ’10 on a Brooklyn pub crawl.
Nice little bar with a well thought out tap and bottle selection. Big Belgian/overseas influence on the bottle selection, which I knew would be the case - but not what I’m particularly looking for in the US but I’m sure is great for others.
Had a small cheese plate which was tasty.
Good vibes and service.

Spuyten Duyvil is located in Brooklyn on Metropolitan Ave across from Fette Sau. The red exterior doesn’t have an obvious signage.
The interior is dimly lit with the bar running along the right side, and small tables opposite. Red ceiling with large hanging lights. Odd decor on the walls including an old bicycle. There are chalkboards behind the wall listing the beers that are available.
The bar has 6 or 8 beers on draught with an emphasis on Belgians, as well as some regional breweries like Two Roads. The bottled selection consists of over 50 selections, again heavier on Belgian styles. Many rarities and vintage ales as well.
Service on a relatively busy weeknight was decent. My colleague and I had a small table and were pretty much left to ourselves to order at the bar. The bartender seemed knowledgeable about the available beers.
We did not have any food on our visit.
Overall this bar wasn’t a revelation or anything but had a nice laid back if hipster atmosphere. I wouldn’t put it at the top of the list but would visit again if in Brooklyn.

Reminds me of Smokeless Joe’s in Toronto - long and narrow; half a dozen taps; great bottled list. Staff could talk the talk - surprisingly rare for a beer bar. Cheese selection was solid. the garden in the back looked cool, too. One of the best.

Stopped over after dinner across the street. Small place, with a tight bar and a few booths across from it. The place had a nice friendly vibe, and a really impressive selection of beers. Some one else grabbed the tab (thanks!) so can’t comment on the prices. Certainly worth a stop during any pub crawl of the area.
82 = ★★★½ (Solid place, near the top of the list for locals and visitors)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

What people said. Awesome cozy place with a truly friendly atmosphere where the locals are sociable and were all happy to see a montrealer. Unreal beer list for america. I had some beers I certainly didn’t expect to find on this side of the atlantic like cantillon loerik, de ranke guldenberg, de proef flemish primitive. They do carry 10 cantillon if not 11. I was a bit unlucky with the taps though, among the 5 taps were éphémère apple that i get locally, vapeur cochonne and hog heaven which I’m not a fan of. Too bad a few beers on the menu were out of stock.

Pretty chic place- very small at the front with a handful of wooden tables and a cramped bar. Good selection of carefully chosen taps but only about 5 or so. Rotation is written up in chalk. Deep bottle list even though most may not be advertised. Out back is a large "biergarten" of sorts. Nice wire tables and a big garden with trees. Very nice- sort of quirky/hipster Brooklyn feel. Cheese plate was very good and well thought out. Lots of special menu items to pair with beer. This place has special connections to Cantillon so that is worth coming here in of itself especially for any releases or big events. Across the street is a typical Brooklyn deli grocery store that serves up some of the most ridiculously good sandwiches I have ever had. Hot damn.

Huge selection of Belgian brews as well as French and German ones. 6 taps. US selection not so impressive. Nice big patio. Very dark after sunset.
