Threw this one into a Brooklyn crawl. This pub has that homely vibe and with an eclectic mix of folks. I ordered a pint of something from Cigar City and grabbed a seat in the outside patio area. I patted a strangers dog that was the size of a fuckiní brown bear. Who needs a pet thatís bigger than the average human? And in fuckiní New York City of all places. Friendly doge though - even got a a lick.
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.
This is the best pub Iíve entered so far. Beeing a swede on vaccation in NY with focus on beerdrinking and getting to know people, this was elite. The bartender immediately sensed what I wanted and I did not only drank some of my best beers here, I also spend the whole evening with some wonderful regulars. The interior tells tales of some great brewers/events being there. Love it!
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.
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.

On the surface this place might look like quite a few other places, but once you get there you grab the atmosphere of a neighborhood-bar. We watched a few of the matches of the Soccer World Cup there in the summerof 2010. And had a few beer from tap as well. Very decent selection. Would like this place to be my local bar, if I lived in N.Y.
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.
Been going here for years and years... excellent neighborhood bar with a kick-ass beer selection. The people that work there and that patronize it are all great, unpretentious people. The kind of place I wish I could go to more often. Oh and they have darts. Címon!
