I was excited to go here and perhaps caught it on an off night. The taps were rare, but in no way exciting or worth seeking out. It seems like a cool place and is likely much more enjoyable in the summer with the garden area, but I canít not say I was disappointed. Prices are actually terrible. I think they were charging $25 for a Jolly Pumpkin bomber, that is half that down the street. This is more than bar price mark-ups, it is price-gouging based on trendy reputation. Any of the top rated NY area bars, Blind Tiger, Rattle N Hum, Barcade, are significantly better than this place. Service was snarky and displayed no interest in the beer.

The main attraction of this bar is the beer garden out back. The bar has a pretty solid selection, but they charge you for it. The bartender didnít know much about beer, but was nice and unpretentious. They only serve cheese and chacuterie, which are very good. Overall a great bar to have a snack and beer in the beer garden

They have a good selection of beer, but not so different from other pubs...There is a nice patio

Small narrow bar with a nice outside area. 6 great taps and a bottle list that is sure to impress. Mainly focuses on Belgian ales, although some rare American beers are present. Food consists of excellent cold meat and cheese plates. While Iíve seen better selections, Iíve never been to such a great beer bar.

Good obscure selection of mostly foreign. Only about 5-6 taps, the rest bottles. The bottles are very pricey. Service was average to below average and it wasnít busy. Worth a trip just to see if they have anything interesting available.

Iím 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 thatís 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 thatís 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 didnít get served by Owner Joe.
