A nice little bar in Greenpoint/Williamsburg with interesting decor. The curved wooden bar table is really nice. The beer selection is not particularly massive, but there will be stuff that most of you have not had (the beers I drank there had less than ten ratings). The bartender was a pretty nice person, and she seemed to be generally familiar with beer and was aware of the reasons why all the beers were chosen to be on the menu. However, she did play nothing but Nirvana for the three hours that we were there (one band wednesdays). The place was not too crowded on a Wednesday, but it did not feel empty either. The prices are generally pretty reasonable as well. I would certainly go again. The food was good. The savory pies were tasty and filling and the pickle plate was pretty tasty.

Now this is a nice little cosy bar. A bit off-the-beaten path as far as the happening Brooklyn is concerned. Probably sit not more than 50 people. You can tell a lot of heart was put into setting this place up with a limited budget. Decorated in a fun and different way in an almost naïve childish manner. Nice and original patio in the back. There was 8 taps when I was there which included JP Bam Noire, Captain Lawrence, and such. Good limited selection. Soft hippie rock music playing at relatively low volume. A place I’d like to go back to.

A rare combination of being actually cool bar for non-beer nerds, at least if you live in Brooklyn, with a small but really well thought out and solid beer list with pretty uncommon offerings. They organize the beer list by ABV strength in low, mid, and big. Oh yeah, and they have shuffleboard and a nice outdoor area.

Cool little bar. Somewhat trendy in its decor, but nicely done. Shuffleboard, a nice patio out back with a movie showing, oddly enough a ladies arm wrestling tournament started up as well. Nice bar area, but limited seating. Small, but solid beer selection with fair prices. Service was fine, although otherwise unremarkable. Neighborhood bar? Eh, sort of. I usually equate ’neighborhood’ with ’divey’, which it certainly wasn’t. Had a fun time at this place as well

Here we had our last beer of the evening. "One for the road!", or better "one for the bed", because we slept over right next door. We all had the same beer, which normally I would not agree to. BUT! We had the Southern Tier Pumking beer on draft. Oh my. I cannot imagine any better beer of which you can drink a pint right before going to bed. The owner of the place was a very friendly woman with whom we chatted away. Coming there with a local might of course have helped, but I think she’s nice to everyone. The selection is small but for the second time that night I was surprised to see all these rare and high quality Belgian (and German) beers. If I’d be living next door, I’d never be at home.

A very nice neighborhood bar tucked away in Greenpoint. I came here for a special Brooklyn Brewery bottle tasting but I also enjoyed the draft offerings. The range is small or medium but the quality is high. The beers are well-priced, with the least expensive going for $5. There seem to be some nice food options (cheese plate, e.g.), but I did not try any and cannot comment. The one bartender working during my visit was efficient and polite. The bar itself is relatively small and there is a garden out back. Because of this place’s location (fairly off the beaten path) I cannot envision it ever getting too crowded, and I think that’s great.

Sunday afternoon visit, only four folks at the bar. This was a cool local place with a great shuffleboard, weird Van Halen theme, well chosen beer selection, and nice cheese olives and pickles. I have no idea if this gets jammed on the weekend, but it was perfect for a quiet pint and whooping up on Eugene in shuffleboard.

I’d scored them higher on ambiance but something about the interior of the place isn’t so appealing. Sorry. The garden is really great in the warmer months and I do love the place... always a great selection of beer.
