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.

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 youíre willing to fork over 25 bucks or more for that rare 750 of something, you wonít be getting anything you canít go to American Beer Dist. for - overall a great place, with a wonderful atmosphere and friendly staff, but, unless you have the scratch, you wonít be getting to taste the stuff that makes this place special.

Flat out amazing beer selection. Nice looking food, but I didnít eat any. Service was top notch. Great atmosphere is ecclectic without being pretentious. I sat in a leather throne. Beer (Fantome Strange Ghost) was served at right temp in an excellent, large bowled, nice quality wine glass. Prices certainly seemed fair (although the sticker shock always gets you when youíre looking at lists of Cantillon, etc). Of the places Iíve been, Iíd put this behind only Toronado, and that only because I love the atmosphere of Toronado that extra little bit.

This is an unbelievable place. I spent a whole night at the tiny, hearty biergarten drinking good beer and eating great cheeses and sausages. The selection is not very wide, but there are some rareties in between. Mostly european stuff. Too sad they didínt have all the bottes that they claimed to have on the blackboard. Because of that, I missed Peche Morted and Cantillon Spuytin Duyvil. Interior in the bar is retro style. Different chairs, a old hospital table, an old bike and several maps on the walls. As of the service, I was quite impressed that one of the two friendly, dedicated bartenders spoke Danish. All in all a great bar for the enthusiast and a great bar for everyone else as well. Even the jukebox had a nice selection of classic American songs.

Wonderful place! A bit tight but donít we love that! Great selection of world beers - Baltic Porters, Geuzeís, Doppelbocks, and one or two Eisbocks. Rapid rotation of cask and kegged beers. Dedicated staff. Cool interior with loads of remote breweriana.

Very much recommended, huge, huge! selection of beer worldwide. Especially Belgian selections, I really liked how everything was listed by country and style. Very enjoyable place, has a very nice outdoor area, quiet conversation. One of my all-time favorites. Staff is very helpful, efficient, knowledgeable. Wonderful experience.

Nice hole in the wall... could use a few more taps. Nice to see some unique stuff, like a port-primed cask of J.W. Lees.

Absolutely stunning Belgian bottle menu, about as drool-inducing as the HopLeafís in Chicago or Brugesí Brugsí Beertje. Superb homey feel, extremely attentive and hard-working barmen, what more can you ask for really? If I had a place like this in my city, Iíd be a regular. Prices are pretty steep, especially if you get into the rare bottles, but if you choose well, you wonít be disappointed. Cheese and meat plate is pretty interesting. One of the worldís best, no doubt.
