If you love sours, this is the place to visit. Fantastic selection revolving mainly around Belgians, rare Scandinavian beers, and sours. But it will cost you dearly: this is among the most overpriced beer bars I visit. I do stop in from time to time but often find myself not wanting to shell out ~$40 for a bottle that catches my eye. Really happy to live nearby though!

This place is remind me the place where I work, in belgium !
Crowded of youth and less youth people, two barmen, a lot of humour hidded and less hidded everywhere.
The service was more than good, the only place in the east coast where they pour the beer more than correctly (with an another place in Portland Main).
Selection is really nice, I really enjoyed the place.
[And for eating, just cross the street and go to the garage in front (ask to the bartenders).]

Top notch Belgian selection, great staff, love the cheese & charcuterie... Fun place to try something obscure. Gets so damn crowded though!

Took some Brooklyners there while I was visiting from FL. The staff were rude, they were out of the 1st 5 or 6 things I asked for. Although I believe they weren’t really out of stock, just the staff being selective to whom they sell their finer/rarer beers.
The Garden seating out back was comfortable, & the locals @ the bar were very nice & approachable when the staff failed to deliver on beer conversation.
I would have loved to rate this place higher, but between the service and the prices, $30 for Jolly Pumpkin?!?!
On the Plus side, they also have a bottle shop in a different location. The guy working there was as nice as could be. He was pretty knowledgeable & had a great selection. I was even able to pick up a couple bottles of Hommage!

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.

First time I went to Spuyten Duyvil was sometime in January on a Saturday night. The place was packed and I felt like a sardine in a can. It’s a tiny place and when it’s packed it can be annoying. Went again in late June on a Sunday afternoon and boy what a difference. The outdoor section was open and we had a few beers outside. Nice set-up. Good selection. Would recommend anytime except on a Saturday night!!!

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 can’t 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 didn’t 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
