When I visited: Late September 2013. What I had: an imperial IPA on tap and a glass of sauvignon blanc for the lady. What I liked: Despite the small size of the bar we were able to grab seats right away. What I disliked: In keeping with the obnoxious service and atmosphere there’s no sign for this place so initially we walked right past it. Once inside we couldn’t see the draught or food menus so we had to ask the twit working the bar, who was more interested in talking down to us than actually explaining what was available. We reluctantly ordered one drink, passed on the food options (most of which we couldn’t pronounce), and rushed over to Barcade, where the night was salvaged. IMHO the suffocating pretension and sleazy hipster vibe of Spuyten embody everything that craft beer is NOT about, and you couldn’t pay me to come back here. Avoid. Overall Rating: 36

Great beer bar in Brooklyn. High quality selection with a few surprises. Nice shaded outdoor area outback.

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

Walked across the bridge, had some fresh pizza and ice cream, and then walked over to enjoy some beers. The list was impressive although not as crazy as I thought it would be; was also pricey. However like the eclectic/hipster atmosphere (probably because it was mostly empty), service was top notch, and enjoyed relaxing and enjoying some beer.

Visited in May 2012.

First off, the name and the address aren’t on this place anywhere. Actually, the only indication of the address is on the mail box. Second, the prices are out of control. $60 for a Vigeronne 750... But that is all (mostly) forgiven by the fact that the selection is awesome and so is the area in the back. The bar is small and I could see this place getting packed during peak hours but outside, under the large trees, there is plenty of room. Cool place and I would return if in the area if I wanted something the other bars in the area didn’t stock.

can be a bit pricey, but there’s no lack of quality on tap or in the bottles. they have a lot of cool events, to make visits interesting and sometimes surprising. very nice backyard. friendly staff, nice local crowd.

Wonderful, original, eclectic craftbeer bar that is a destination in and of itself. I highly recommend a stop here when visiting Brooklyn craftbars...but definitely worth a special trip alone. I gave them a 14 out of 15 for selection...not for quantity (this isn’t a Yard House) but for quality...for unusual and hard to find selections. The decor is very much like an antique store...maybe even an oldtime hardware store. There is a really nice courtyard out back too. The food choices are great. They include cheeses...meats...pickles...olives, and the like...all of the highest quality (if you need something more substantial...go to Fette Sau nearby for amazing BBQ). The place is filled with regulars (locals who realize how lucky they are to have a place like this in their neighborhood) as well as craftbeer explorers like myself who will read about a place like this and search it out. I recommend you do the same!

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.

Visited here just the once in March ’10 on a Brooklyn pub crawl. Nice little bar with a well thought out tap and bottle selection. Big Belgian/overseas influence on the bottle selection, which I knew would be the case - but not what I’m particularly looking for in the US but I’m sure is great for others. Had a small cheese plate which was tasty. Good vibes and service.
