Visited here just the once in March í10 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 Iím particularly looking for in the US but Iím sure is great for others. Had a small cheese plate which was tasty. Good vibes and service.

Nice place with no sign. Rather full on a Sunday night. Interior is nice and fortunately we managed to find some place to sit. Tap list is small, but the beers are obscure. Of the six, I havenít had five of them, which is generally a good sign. Two Mikkellers on tap is generally a good sign anywhere. Bottles are many, but the prices are high (kind of inconsistently: for example Thornbridge Bracia is cheaper here than in Whole Foods, but slightly more expensive than New Beer Distributors). Many bottles are $40 or more and of those, many of them are not sufficiently rare to justify the price. No Bud Light to be found anywhere. I like that. Bar tenders were nice, but they mispelled a few beers on the menu, so it seems like they might not know their shit as well as they should. Food looked tasty: cheese and meet and olives. Stuff I like.

Stopped for Zwanze day this place was packed to the gills. Has that iconic beer bar vide. Old school with only siz taps but were all loaded for the event. Bottle list was insane due to the event as well. They have a cool outdoor area. Service was outstanding especially given the size of the crowd.

Made the trek out here for zwanze day. Why donít they have sign out front? Anyways small place not much tom look at but interesting stuff to drink for sure. They handled the madness nicely the bottles were too expensive for me but a boy can dream. Iíd stop by if in neighborhood again

Spuyten Duyvil has probably the snobbiest beer list you will find for Belgians. Much of it is very obscure, or was a few years ago when I first moved around the corner. The small tap list usually has something amazingly awesome and rare to offer. Itís helped set a trend in the neighborhood for design cool and itís not at all contrived. Itís tiny though, beware in Summer months when the huge and beautiful back yard isnít open. My major beef with it is that it is so expensive even for NYC. And that huge obscure and rare bottle list on their chalk board...have a few back ups especially if you are ordering one of those rare obscure beers you see on tap. The service can be fast, they donít seem knowledgable. The small wine, meat and cheese lists are stelar for a beer bar.

Small bar in Brooklyn area. Not a big selection (6 tap and 1 cask) when I went there but the beer on tap/cask were good. Decent bottle selection, but many where out (still listed on the board) - 3 out 4 that I asked for where out. Price are high but reasonable for NYC area. No food except cheese, olive and some other appetizer. Staff was kind but not very helpful.

A cozy little place in Brooklyn. Not so many taps but the beer was really good. The bottle list contains some really good things But there are many other places in NY that is better

Small but well selected draft list. Great bottle list that is way out of my price range. Awesome outdoor patio area. Cool place to hang out, but there are other places in the area Iíd rather spend my money.

Fun spot. Came here with my buddy Amos. Had a few I hadnít tried on tap and a pretty good bottle list. Wish they had more lambics in the cellar. Good service, nice beer garden out back. Nice neighborhood bar.

Finally got here with my wonderful girlfriend and her sister, who lives in Williamsburg. Classic beer bar on the less classy end of the spectrum; not so clean bathrooms, a touch grungy, going for that hipster feel (not in a bad way) as opposed to something like Ginger Man or Churchkey. 6 taps but very well selected; when I was there they had Beer Geek Breakfast, two beers from Kuhnhenn including an excellent DIPA, Weihenstephaner Hoplosion, 21st Bitter American, and Southampton Abbot 12. Bottles are good but only two that you couldnít find retail; Lou Pepe Kriek í08 ($55) and Norrebro Little Korkny í06, which I asked for and they ended up not being able to find. Bartenders were nice but not particularly engaging or inviting, though Iím not going to judge the entire place for that one night in terms of service. Still definitely a worthy destination, but maybe not a place where you can spend the entire afternoon/evening parsing through the draft and bottle lists like some other world-class establishments.
