Visited in May 2012.

First off, the name and the address arenít 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 didnít stock.

can be a bit pricey, but thereís 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 isnít 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 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.
