There’s no sign out front except a chalk board on the sidewalk advertising rare & obscure beers. 90% of the beer menu is non-US with hoppy beers scarce and lambics to the fore. 10 different Cantillons and 8 Fantomes when I went. Joe Carroll, the owner, was as pleasant as could be and told me about the location’s 1920’s barbershop past. The bar was rather Belgian in atmosphere, with homemade furniture and odd gramophones serving as decoration, along with a collection of ashtrays from US motels and a collection of glass soda bottles. The formidable European (and especially Belgian) beer menu is quite a draw. Interestingly, Joe carries a slew of sakes from Kiuchi Brewery (makers of Hitachino Nest beer), as well. Additionally, locals will find that the prices at Spuyten Duyvil are not that high, given what we’re used to in NYC. The food is an assortment of artisanal cheeses, meats, pates and Callebaut chocolate that makes for pleasant eating. All in all, this is the very best beer bar in NYC and one of the best beer bars I have ever visited in the world. The RateBeer rankings of Best Places agrees.

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.

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!
