this is my favorite beer bar along with the blind tiger. Joe and the crew are very helpful, they will slice up a top notch cheese & cured meat plate for you, and the decor is super cool. there are map and anotomy charts like they used to have in grade school, funky ashtray collections, etc. above average jukebox tunes (itís so hard to beat the Khyber Pass in Philly). tap beer selection is tits up, and itís fresher than ever b/c NYCís best tap line cleaner Andy is a regular. crowd is williamsburg folk who wonít laugh at you if you didnt buy all your clothes at Beaconís Closet.

Spuyten Duyvil is located in Brooklyn on Metropolitan Ave across from Fette Sau. The red exterior doesnít 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 wasnít a revelation or anything but had a nice laid back if hipster atmosphere. I wouldnít put it at the top of the list but would visit again if in Brooklyn.

When I visited: Late September 2013. What I had: an imperial IPA on tap and a glass of sauvignon blanc for the lady. What I liked: Despite the small size of the bar we were able to grab seats right away. What I disliked: In keeping with the obnoxious service and atmosphere thereís no sign for this place so initially we walked right past it. Once inside we couldnít see the draught or food menus so we had to ask the twit working the bar, who was more interested in talking down to us than actually explaining what was available. We reluctantly ordered one drink, passed on the food options (most of which we couldnít pronounce), and rushed over to Barcade, where the night was salvaged. IMHO the suffocating pretension and sleazy hipster vibe of Spuyten embody everything that craft beer is NOT about, and you couldnít pay me to come back here. Avoid. Overall Rating: 36

Not a massive selection, but this is a great bar for a friendly visit of like minded beer geeks. Very friendly.

Walked across the bridge, had some fresh pizza and ice cream, and then walked over to enjoy some beers. The list was impressive although not as crazy as I thought it would be; was also pricey. However like the eclectic/hipster atmosphere (probably because it was mostly empty), service was top notch, and enjoyed relaxing and enjoying some beer.

Visited in May 2012.

First off, the name and the address arenít 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 didnít stock.

can be a bit pricey, but thereís no lack of quality on tap or in the bottles. they have a lot of cool events, to make visits interesting and sometimes surprising. very nice backyard. friendly staff, nice local crowd.

Wonderful, original, eclectic craftbeer bar that is a destination in and of itself. I highly recommend a stop here when visiting Brooklyn craftbars...but definitely worth a special trip alone. I gave them a 14 out of 15 for selection...not for quantity (this isnít a Yard House) but for quality...for unusual and hard to find selections. The decor is very much like an antique store...maybe even an oldtime hardware store. There is a really nice courtyard out back too. The food choices are great. They include cheeses...meats...pickles...olives, and the like...all of the highest quality (if you need something more substantial...go to Fette Sau nearby for amazing BBQ). The place is filled with regulars (locals who realize how lucky they are to have a place like this in their neighborhood) as well as craftbeer explorers like myself who will read about a place like this and search it out. I recommend you do the same!

Great selection.. many rare selections. Love a lot of the stuff they put out here. Garden in back makes it an amazing stop when weather is nice.
