So this is really the only place in lower Brooklyn that has a selection like that... its missing some choice beers I really wanted, but it served all of our beers in the appropriate glasses, so i was pleased. Unfortunately, the pricing is waaay out of the norm for certain beers, like $12-$24 for beers that even in Williamsburg or Manhattan would serve for $8-$10. I keep reading reviews on this place that say the waiters are knowledgable, but by the end of the night, he was asking advice from me and even took down my email for more info on better beers. he may expand the selection based on my choices, which is pretty cool, but we’ll see. Anyway, good night out. Good service, good food, good beer. Top place if you dont mind spending some cash.

If you ever go to Draft Barn on Ave X watch out for a waiter named Yuriy. the guy is completely brainless. did not let my wife have a cup of tea from outside. My friends and I spent three hours there watching a hockey game having beer and food. My pregnant wife (as much as she loves beer, could not have any) wanted a cup of tea or coffee and since they do not serve either I walked across the street and bought her a cup. Well, not only did he not allow her to drink it and made her step outside, but he was also extremely rude about it sort of acting with bouncer in a night club kind of attitude. When I requested to speak with the manager or owner he refused to provide their contact information. What a douche bag!!!! This is a good place overall but the fact that they hire people like this is enough to make me not want to ever come back. Too bad, otherwise I kind of liked the place.

Its a decent place to spend a night with your buddies. Got a laid back vibe: large wooden tables and benches make up most of the furniture, an LCD tv on a wall. Good beer selection, but make sure you know what the price of your beer is to escape unpleasant surprises (one bottle we ordered ran for $45). Good stick-to-your-ribs food, too, try the sausage combo.

Finally went into this bar and was highly surprised. This bar is in my old neighborood in Gravesend, Brooklyn. There is nothing at this end of Brooklyn that resembles good beer so for that reason I never went in. Its been open for about 2 years and they have a large collection of beers. The 180 bottles are made up of lots of Belgians (nothing rare), some English (Sam Smith, Lees, etc.), belgian-style micros, and Eastern European beers. This bar sells like 6 different Baltika’s. This is mainly due to the neigborhood, which used to Italian but is slowly turning Russian. The taps are all german (i.e.Spatens) and a pilsner urquel. Again nothing special but a large selection in a dry part of town. The bar itself is beautiful. They have a fussball machine and lots of wooden benches, tables, bar with steins and signs on the walls. There is a patio in the back and they have food. Very quiet neigborhood, by 10 o’clock there is no one on the street. They don’t have a phone yet even. They serve beer in the proper glassware though. Again lots of good but not rare beers in a quiet, dry part of town.
