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 . . .

I dont know why I didnt just go ahead and give this place a perfect rating. It’s amazing, and although the prices are a little high (they dont have liquor to balance the cost) the selection is incredible, and the service perfect. i love the glassware! Also, the wine list is totally respectable, making it a great date spot... for nerds

I love this place. Sure it is in an unusual spot in Brooklyn. Who would've guessed that there would be such a lovely inviting Belgium beer bar in Williamsburg?
The first thing you notice when you walked in is a café/bistro atmosphere. The furniture and decorations are all second hand and for sale. I find this to be a wonderful element to add to a watering hole. Every time I have been here I always eye the pictures of anatomical figures and various ash trays all seemingly form old Belgium breweries. The bar is quite narrow, like a railroad apartment. They also have the best garden are in back of any bar in the city.
The reason why I call this a Belgium beer bar is that they have over 50 bottles of Belgium beers, including a wonderful Fantome selection and with an even better one for Cantillon. They also have quite a few bottles of rare English and German beers as well. They have only 6 taps and one cask, but all are rotating. Each time I go they have some very interesting selections including recently one of my all time favorites, Perkuno’s Hammer. The owner feels that even Duvel is too trendy and does not stock it. The selection will blow you away. My favorite thing here is what they do with their "food" menu. They mainly have small platters of cheese and/or meat served with nice bread and crackers. Everything I have had seems to be equally rare and distinguished as the beers they pour, but the cheese makes this place out of this world.

I am lucky enough to live just a few blocks from one of the best bars in the U.S. This place is a regular hang out for me and my friends. The taps/cask are constantly changing. The people whom work here know what they are doing and arent snobby. A real great neighborhood bar that attracts people from all over the world. In typical Brooklyn style it is easily missed with no sign and looks as someone else on here put it, "like an antique store" from the outside. This bar has turned me on to so many new beers and has transformed my palette! Thank you Spuyten Duyvel!
P.S. if you are in the neighborhood, step across the street to Fette Sau, same owners, for an AMAZING whiskey collection and some of the best bbq you have ever had. CHEERS!

HATE IT. I was a long time ratebeer member, but left because of a hectic year. I came back just to put forward my feelings toward this place. I recently moved from Philly to Brooklyn and this was recommended by everyone’s favourite philly beer guy, Tom. He thought it would be right up my alley. It has none of the appeal of my favourite places, including Monks.
*The staff - snotty and condescending. Completely unhelpful and unenthusiastic about beer. Know-it-alls that don’t know much at all.
*The atmosphere - hipsters and yuppies sipping (mostly) wine. Small bar area, badly lit outdoor area with uncomfortable tables featuring ashtrays - but don’t try to smoke, you’ll get some rude remarks from neighboring tables.
*Glassware - over-sized wine glasses only. When my bf requested a pint glass for his IPA, he was told that a beer of such high ABV couldn’t be served in a pint glass. Um, what? Whomever ticked proper glassware here, is telling jokes.
*Selection - very very small and average if you ask me. Sure they have vintages, but it’s mostly crap that I wouldn’t drink if it were $20 cheaper (e.g., free). Hell, Mugs rivals their selection of vintages. No Belgians or even Belgian styles on draft.
They have a selection of 6 or so cheeses, 3 meats and a pate - pick 3 for $15, served with artisanal bread. Quality eats, but still over-priced considering the tiny portions.
I may give this place a second chance one day, but I’m much happier at Mugs or Gingerman.
