In short, this is Evil Twin/Jeppeís answer to MikkelerBAR only in New York instead of Copenhagen. Came with the entire NYC ratebeer group for a Saturday afternoon. Secret, unassuming white door is your entrance. Could easily pass by without knowing it was here. Interior is clean, simple, woodwork and white. Long bar with a long mirror displaying the tap list on handwritten white marker. All tap beers served in stemmed wine glasses, smaller 8oz pours and larger 12+ oz pours. Prices were reasonable up to $8 per pour. Selection is a case of quality over quantity: Probably 20 taps but excellent diversity with focus on Evil Twin of course, Belgian, other Danish beers. Tap list when I was there was lacking in American beers but no matter. Keg rotation here is quick, nothing insane like Ma Che Siete but certainly very quick with no stale keg backlog. Special edition one-off stuff on tap that you will never find anywhere else like Port BA Even More Jesus, Gin Barrel 1809 Berliner. Bottle list is insane. Letís just say that if there is a rare bottle of beer youíve been after, try and ask if it is available even if not on the menu. Food plates were cured meats, Danish rugbrod, pickled vegetables, olives. All very high quality, perfect for beer pairing. It is clear that Jeppe knows exactly what is needed when trying a flight of different specialties beers. The restaurant in the back is not open yet, but once it is, I have no doubt the food quality will be extremely high. Very cozy, clean, happening place. Was very crowded and hopping at 3-4pm on Saturday and Iím sure continued like that until close. Service was quick, on the ball, understood all of our crazy orders, clearly trained well and understand beer. Did not make me wait for more than 1-2 minutes for an order despite the large crowd. Had the great privilege to chat with Jeppe 1 on 1 for about 15 minutes. Pretty amazing experience. Even got to meet Elliot!

I heard about this place a few months before it opened and I had wanted to visit ever since. A world class beer bar with a michelin quality restaurant in the back? You better believe I am in on that. Atmosphere was awesome. Tons of people enjoying themselves, beautiful bar and decor to match. Quality is one of the highest I have come across. Their draft system is state of the art, their build quality is amazing and their food is some of the best in the city. Service was a touch hit or miss. When they came around it was top notch but I was left with an empty glass for a bit longer than I should have been for sitting at the middle of the bar. Selection was pretty good on our visit. They obviously had plenty of Evil Twin but they also had some killer Belgianís that I had never seen before. If you include the back restaurant I am not sure how you canít say the food is world class. If you donít then it is adequate but nothing over the top. I got the bread and butter and while it was awesome I am not sure I really got my moneyís worth. Prices were high across the board, even more so than the better Manhattan bars. Overall this is easily one of the best beer bars I have ever come across. I look forward to visiting again the next time I am in the area.

Great place. Too expensive, but you almost get your moneyís worth. Our servers were excellent, both friendly and knowledgeable. Lovely selection of beers. Deserves the credit and hype itís been given.

If you like evil twin then its worth a visit about 20 taps... a few interesting guest beers but more than half were house beers... Reasonable prices which incl: small, medium,and large pours. .

Has a fabulous selection of beer on tap and a great selection of bottles. The staff are friendly, although their WiFi is screwy. A bit difficult to see the sign above the door and the air-conditioning was set to super coll for some reason. Despite the few drawbacks was an amazing experience.

Beautifully designed bar with a good selection of brews, a lot from Evil Twin, not sure if thats a good thing or not, guess it depends on how much of a fan of Evil twin you are. Food was good, but nothing to get really excited about. Overall, I can see why this rates so highly, and it is well deserved, would be one of my first stops in New york. The only down side for me was the obnoxiously loud music.

Very stylish long marble bar and low wooden coffee tables. 21 taps very good selection, half-hearted food menu, good atmosphere knowledgeable and warm bartender. Place to be if youíre in Brooklyn!

Place rating number 1200!

I didnít know what to expect besides hipster when I walked in. How similar was this going to be to the Mikkeller bar in SF? I think this came first so I guess it would be a situation of the Mikkeller bar being like this. Anyway, theyíre not that similar really. This place of course had a good number of Evil Twin beers available and plenty of guest beers. The bartender was nice enough to pour some free tasters. In the end I went with a full glass of one of the hoppy options. Pretty cool glass that this stuff comes in. The place is dimly lit and kind of quiet. Prices are of course sky high but what do you expect. I can only imagine what the restaurant portion is like. On the subject of food I enjoyed a steak salad. The meet was cooked fairly rare, which I was OK with. What bothered me was the damn arugula. Give it a rest. And while weíre at it (note to all chefs): please stop using dandelion greens. They are not pleasant (see my rating of DBGB). It didnít distract too much from the overall quality of the food but Iím officially over arugula.

The service was friendly despite my obvious disdain for hipsters. On that subject, I think Iím going to relent on the war against the uniqueness of looking like everyone else. Itís really just a fashion style now, not so much a philosophy so what do I care? Cool place overall and Iíd recommend it to anyone in/around Brooklyn.
