great neighborhood joint. friendly staff. solid food. not the most challenging draught list, but most everything is good, with the occasional cool surprise on tap. they seem very community oriented, which is good. i know that the owner is very involved with and generous to the local beer scene.

5 or so minutes walk from the Brazen Head and sister pub to the Waterfront on 2nd Ave in Manhattan. Single room bar with 20 or so taps, largely from NY and the East coast. I sat at the bar during my visit here and took on some chicken wings. Service was fine, but not overly friendly - ie I was sat on my own at the bar and the bar tender didnít make much effort to chat with me despite it being not too busy. Ok place - not worth seeking out but if you hit the Brazens Head you may as well take a look in!

Yeah, nice place. Down the road from the Brazen Head and a lot more low-key and dive-bar-ish. Lovely range of beers, useful barman and a seats available at the bar. This was more my scene.

Nice place. Food was really good. sandwiches, burgers, BBQ etc. Bartender was extremely friendly & knowledgable. Tap selection was OK. Lots of Long Trail. Cask was on. Decent place

Have only been to the one in Brooklyn and its a nice place. The bar itself has a elclectiv mix of neighborhood/Irish bar, with a craft lineup. Lots of junk lines the bar with some kitschy stuff everywhere, not a new place. Free popcorn is cool, machine does not look new either. Food smelled good and looked good but I did not get any, above average pub quality. Service was normal, bartenders did not seem like the chatter-mouth kind. Its in a good place, far enough away from too many people but close enough to hit up a lot of other beer spots in the area. Did not even look at bottles the tap were diverse enough to find something anyone would like, including locals and some Belgian Inbevs (Leffe Brune, Rodenbach GC, my first sighting of Palm on tap in the states). Others have come across some rarities here on tap as well. Worth a stop if you are beer touring this part of Brooklyn as is.
