Nice little neighborhood bar where everyone knows everyone else (yes, I know). Great atmosphere, 10 craft beers on tap, very small food menu with people ordering pizza from outside. I enjoyed being there and will try to go again.
Really good beer location in Brooklyn, New York. Very cosy and nice decoration. One disadvantage - they dont offer flights or halfpints. Hovever, the pint Iíve had (Firestone Union Jack IPA) was one of the best beer pints in my life :)
This was my fourth and last stop on a Saturday afternoon pub crawl. I enjoyed finishing up here...especially since they had flights and I could sample a variety of their less common beers without drinking too much so late in my pub crawl. I sat at the end of the bar where you first come in (back to the door) which is a bit of a quirky seat...but all that was available...and it did allow a view down the bar at all the patrons...which prevented any boredom from stepping in...LOL! This is a really nice craftbeer bar...maybe not one of my two favorites from this particular neighborhood visit that day...but solid and worth a visit nonetheless when more than a couple of establishments are on your agenda.

Visited towards the end of the evening on a Tuesday. 16 or so beers on tap plus one on cask. The beer list was really solid, nothing too extravagant, but a bunch of nice beers. I looked at the bottle list briefly, and it seemed to be pretty great. The crowd was good as was the service. This was good place, though I thought it lacked a bit of energy. However, this was my last stop of a pretty long day of travel and bar hopping, so I am sure it was mostly me that lacked energy. I will revisit next time I am in town.
76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
Stopped in for a late night pint after a day on the town. Kind of an odd setup to the bar. You initially walk in to a medium size, dive bar feeling place with a long bar on the left near the rear. After sitting at the bar I noticed there was a second, larger seating area behind the main room with tables for eating and a library of sorts at the far back. Kind of confusing but neat at the same time. Our bartender wsa drunk, I assume, but friendly, and quick with our beers. Had a nice selection of beer and some Iíd never heard of (Carton Boat Beer, which was awesome). I really enjoyed the place and would stop in again for a few pints. Nothing fancy, just a nice place for a quick pint or two.
This is a pretty nice place. The decor is clean, but not sterile. Everything is sort of west coast themed. The beer selection is good, but not outstanding. There were three beers on tap that I didnít have, and I ordered each of them. The bartender was nice and was able to tell me which beer was which. They also had two firkins. There is a back room with a large TV. Not bad.
We stopped in here for a quick beer, and ended up waiting out a quick, crazy rain storm. A nice place. We had good service, and the bartender was really friendly, though the place was fairly empty, so he wasnít very busy. The selection was decent, especially if you are not a local and want to try less distributed Brooklyn/NY beers, but it isnít amazing.
Interesting set-up in the back as well, with a library looking room with a big screen showing the Cal game (Cal seems to be the bars theme).
