Une expérience tout simplement hallucinante! Des bières incroyables, des fromages savoureux, une ambiance du tonnerre avec une clientèle relax et cool, des employés sympathiques qui connaissent admirablement bien la bière, bref, un endroit INCONTOURNABLE. Seule critique : peu être un peu cher, mais pour de la qualité, j’imagine qu’il n’y a pas de prix... Merci à Aaron pour m’avoir fait découvrir de nouvelles bière et pour avoir été si sympathique.

This place is like a belgian gold mine tucked into a corner of Brooklyn. You will find stuff here that you have only read about. Bring a friend or make some there for the 750’s. Very rare gems on tap. They do serve cheese plates if you need a nosh. Very hip of thrift store decor, this one is a keeper.

I decided to update the rating for this place since I really do think it’s slipped a lot. The prices have really gotten out of hand and the owners/bartenders have made a habit out of avoiding contact/service and anything that would involve them actually serving you. There is still a great selection of top notch bottles, but you’ll pay for them. There are a whole lot of spots I’d rather spend my time and money at. Too bad because this place really used to be the shit. Definitely one of the cooler beer bars I’ve been to. Long bar, six taps, smallish seating area that kind of reminds of Smokeless Joe’s. Loads of beer in bottles, well cared for and carefully selected. Prices seemed pretty fair to me (although I could drop a ton on all the Cantillon in here). Only thing served is beer or cheese... a winning combo in my opinion. Definitely the friendliest clientele I’ve ever met, lots of bottles were getting passed around the bar for both friends and complete strangers. Visited with beastiefan2k and dickinsonbeer and had a very good first night in NY.

I just got back from the best bar in the world. Got to say hi to Dickinsonbeer and Joe McPhee, with whom I enjoyed this great spot. I have to give a full 15 for selection to this bar. The have a good amount of beer and most importantly they have hard to find brews, which to me is a 15. The service was very good, the bartenders knew their beer. The owner is a great guy. I got to bring my own Alesmith Wee Heavy (Thanks Clark VV) in for a few people to try out. I had the following to drink: Kuhnhenn Raspberry Eisbock (not actually distributed in NY), Andechser Doppelbock Dunkel (don’t think this beer is actually distributed in America), Avery Mephistopheles Stout, and a few others. Had some cheese (all good lots of choice), enjoyed beer with fellow ratebeerians and other beer geeks there. Its a geat place all around and I gave it a 19 overall because othing is perfect but htis is as close as it gets. The interior is a collection of stuff bought from a whole bunch of garage sales, and old bottles of beer ( I mean some really old bottles). From the outside seems a little dingy but that just adds to the ambiance. This is definitly the #1 bar in NYC if not the rest of the world. For example, random Monday they were holding a mini Bock-festival because it was the first day of Spring. Had a bunch of different bocks on tap and bottled. Original score 92.
Used to love, has declined in quality and grown in cost.

A welcome port for a regular out-of-town visitor to Williamsburg/Brooklyn

I was shocked to come in and find that they had bottles of Alpine Great (14% Bourbon Barrel Barleywine) and Lagunitas Gonzo...seemingly unavailable in New York and probably obtained illegally...but whatever! I enjoyed both, although damn, they were were pricey. I also had a bottle of Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin ale, which was nice. The Belgian bottle selection was very nice as well, although overpriced. It was very nice that the bottles are all kept at cellar temperature. The staff was attentive and kind, although they were bitching about wages...etc....This really is a lovely bar. I do wish however that they had a few more draught lines, with more interesting stuff on them. I didn’t find anything on draught of interest.

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 (it’s so hard to beat the Khyber Pass in Philly). tap beer selection is tits up, and it’s fresher than ever b/c NYC’s best tap line cleaner Andy is a regular. crowd is williamsburg folk who won’t laugh at you if you didnt buy all your clothes at Beacon’s Closet.

Great selection of Belgian beers at a fairly reasonable price. All beers served in proper glassware and at proper temperature. Had the salami and cheese platter with bread that was very tasty. They also have a stack of menus for you to order food to be brought inside. Fantastic bar!

Homey and cozy inside - only six taps, but they are VERY well selected - the last time I was there, they put Dieu du Ciel Peche Mortel on one of the taps, and I, literally, heard a chorus of angels - the bottles are where the beer geek gets his rocks off - however, unless you’re willing to fork over 25 bucks or more for that rare 750 of something, you won’t be getting anything you can’t go to American Beer Dist. for - overall a great place, with a wonderful atmosphere and friendly staff, but, unless you have the scratch, you won’t be getting to taste the stuff that makes this place special.
