I’m a snobby Manhattanite, I guess, but this joint is well worth the trip to Brooklyn. Beer!

This place reminded me of being in Amsterdam. Like a little coffee cafe, the have a clean bar and very cool cieling fans. the furniture is eclectic, and the art work is set up like a flea market. Everything has price tag on it. Joe the owner and bartender, was a great guy and he spent time with us teaching us about his trips to Belgium. There were six taps which feature Dogfish 90 minute, Reissdorf Kolsch among others, and one cask ale. The best part was the amazing bottle selection which had a great deal of Belgian and French beers. Not that pricy for NY either. The food selecition of fine cheese and crusty French bread complements beer well. I only wish they had more American beers there, but Joe doesn't want to have beers that are so easy to get. IMO, though, some more craft brewed American Micros would make this place even better. Great beer bar!

Basically the place is very small, tight getting in and out and basically if you had to go I would try to visit on days in the summer when you can enjoy a glass in the amazing backyard beer garden area. Nothing beats it. The service was nice and attentive but sometimes felt distant which was odd at times. But who cares about those things, your here for the beer! and the beer here is fantastic! Decent sized tap list with about 6 always on and a great bottle list. Mostly you would come here if you were craving a great sour or lambic since that’s what seems to be about half of their stock which is fine by me. Only problem is they are a bit pricey at times and would only come here for special occasions. They definitely have some of the best bar events in a year and if you can attend one of those I think your rating for this place would go up just a bit. Overall Its one of the top bars in Brooklyn offering some of the most unique and best beer out in that area.

Some observations: 1) Fantastic ambiance. Very cozy. 2) Amazing selection. I would have liked a few more mainstream beers, but that’s not a big deal. 3) A bit pricey - which makes it a very rare treat for a guy like me. 4) Service could have been better, but I didn’t get served by Owner Joe.

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

A wonderful selection of beers, and great atmosphere. Even though the number of drafts is only six, I still often find that there are a higher number of really good drafts here than at bars with 20-30 drafts! The bottles are actually over a hundred rather than 60! I am happy to say this place is a local to me.

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.

Worth the trip out to Brooklyn. The beer selection wasn’t quite what I’d heard about, but still well beyond even the typical Belgian bar, and the meat and cheese plates are great. A little expensive, even for quality beer, but a cool place nonetheless.

Aeneas  (3) Port Jefferson Station, New York | November 6, 2006
Simply the best beer bar in NY! The small size and relative isolation of Spuyten make it really a niche bar. They have 6 taps and a cask and an incredible bottle selection of hard to find beers from around the world. The bartenders are friendly and very knowledgable about their beers. Spuyten serves light fare including meat and cheese plates, olives and some sweets, all of which serve to compliment the beer. If you’re in NYC and miss this one, you should not forgive yourself!

I went shortly after it opened, and it already had the look and feel of a place that was bound to become an institution. Great selection, knowledgeable tenders, tasty eats, aesthetic but not precious decor---no failings to report. If only if were bigger . . .
