Lots of taps of mostly quality product. I like the layout of the inside... a large open room with small wooden table around the outer edge and a large space in the middle for when it gets crowded. Nice large patio area, which seems to be the main draw. Worth stopping in when in Park Slope.

First of all, this is not a place to visit if you are a Bush supporter (I counted at least six anti-Bush slogans hung up around the bar), but since Iím not, I feel right at home - very homey, old-fashion pub atmosphere (like the Blind Tiger but larger and cleaner), with an alcove for darts in the back, and a small but nice outdoor patio - bottles are limited to major macros mostly, but the tap list is decent (sixpoint, victory, heavyweight, smuttynose, and allagash were all in attendance last I was there) - Bierkraft is right down the block, as well as Gorilla Coffee (the best coffee in NY, IMHO), and the neighborhood is one of the nicest in Brooklyn - worth checking out, but not going out of your way for - head to Williamsburg instead (Spuyten Duyvil, Barcade).

Solid draft list, great patio. Stopped in right at opening so not sure how busy it gets. Nice looking bar, seems like a good place

This was a pretty decent place. Didnít appear as though they had food. The beer selection was pretty solid, the service was decent, and it had a big outdoor area, which is always a plus. Good place to grab a beer.

A nice corner bar with a decent size patio especially for the area. I was visiting my sister with my wife and our two dogs and we wanted to wear the dogs out before leaving them at my sisters house for the evening. We walked them through Prospect Park and into Park Slope when we decided it was the perfect day and time for a pint. The Gate was perfect for our needs because they had a great tap list, gluten free bottle options for my sister, they let you order in food from wherever you want, and they allow dogs. We initially hung out on the patio because we werenít sure how the other patrons would feel about our dogs but we got cold enough that we didnít care about that anymore. The patrons and staff must be used to having dogs because everyone was happy to pet them and no one batted an eye at our pit bull. We had a few pints, ordered in some burgers, and had an enjoyable time. The service was quick and very friendly, even though it was crowded during the NFL playoff game. The crowd was mostly regulars, of which I would be if I lived in the area. Great place.

Went there for the first time last week. 24 taps and a few bottles nothing special Duvel and Lindemans level). Taps infuenced by the InBev agenda (Leffe Bruin, Stella) as well Guiness level types) Bodingtons, Old Spechend hen). Everything else is micro, good selection (DFH, SN, Ommegang) a few Germans and 2 Belgians(Chimay and Rodenbach). They recently had two events thus had some harder to get Hooker beers and SN brews.
Now the bar it self is a average size, darly lite, wooden table and booths. Exposed brock walls. Small more private area in the back, patio. Decorated with junk stuff. Big rainbow colored flag with "say no to the Bush Agenda" on it. Its a good beer bar but just an ok beer-lover bar.

Decent beer bar, with an above-average beer menu. Varied tap list. Worth a stop if in neighborhood.

Surprised it took me this long to stop in here. I ended up going for the huge Bear Republic event, so of course the selection was awesome when I was there. Nice looking bar, with dim lighting, old tin ceilings, wooden booths around the perimeter, and a garden- which I must visit in the warm weather. Prices seemed fair. Their half pours are about 10oz, so that was a plus. Seems like a laid back spot for a few craft brews.

made it here for the Southampton tasting and was pleasantly surprised. Had the option for 16 or 12oz pours on pretty much everything, which helped with ticking. Got there early, before the southampton beers where put on, so the selection is good even when there isnít an event, though nothing all that rare. Decent prices and friendly service. No food, but bringing in food is no problem (pizza place across the street is decent). Nice neighborhood bar which, despite one really drunk couple who broke a glass, probably doesnít get too rowdy. Iíd come back more often but itís a bit of a trek from manhattan via subway.

Nice pub-like atmosphere, nice outdoor area for warmer weather. The service is usually prompt and courteous. The selection varies. Generally not outstanding, but they DO have some killer events with killer beers. No food, but you can BYOF. Decent prices. Nice place, a little far off the beaten path.
