Pretty standard Brooklyn neighborhood bar but comes with a better than average tap list. Have had Hill Farmstead in here a couple of times. Pretty large backyard so probably comes into it’s own in the warmer months. A good place to hang out with friends but I wouldn’t call it a destination for out of town Rbeerians.
First stop on my visit to NYC. Visited during a snowy Sunday evening. Impressive draft list with beers like Hopslam available. Bargirl was a bit confused, but in a charming way. No flights or tasters available. All together a cool place, decently crowded for a Sunday. Would not mind visiting again.
4th Avenue Pub is well located for a stop between St Gambrinus and Threes on any self-respecting Brooklyn beer tour. It stands out as much more of pub as the other beer establishments surrounding it. Pretty dark inside with a strong smell of freshly popped popcorn… We sat at the bar near the window and were served immediately. In my opinion the beer selection is a bit tamer than some of the surrounding bars. The breweries available on my visit were more regionals than locals, with the likes of Lagunitas, Sierra Nevada, Ommegang and Stone. Good beer nonetheless, I would just have liked a few more local offerings. A decent spot, but not the best in the area.

Dimly lit small neighbourhood bar with an interesting and eclectic beer draught list, attentive service. Nice place in a great location.

Been here a few times. Small bar with 20 or so tap lines and some bottles. Friendly staff every time I visit. No half pours. Outdoor area which is nice.
I visited midweek at opening time. This is a cool pub with a friendly bartender and patrons. I felt welcomed as soon as I arrived. The tap list is solid - nothing mind bending but good options. I happened to gain great insight into the local area due to folks in the bar, giving a real local’s pub vibe. Good banter and worth a trek out here.
Stopped in while in neighborhood. Cozy little bar with good vibes. Service was a little slow and unattentive. Decent selection of different brews and reasonable prices. Certainly a better than average neighborhood joint but not a destination.
Stopped in for a couple a pints. Semi-friendly clientele and staff, the usual for the area. Selection was OK. Loud and noisy as expected; hipster Northern vibe is tolerable. Pricy and overall not worth a return visit.

When I visited: Late September 2013.
What I had: Left Hand Oktoberfest on tap, Blue Point Croxley’s 20th Anniversary Red Ale on cask, a couple sauvignon blancs for the Mrs., popcorn to snack on.
What I liked: Dimly-lit, laidback atmosphere at the bar with a weird, almost gypsy-like decor, nice cosmopolitan crowd, awesome music, quick and friendly service from the bartender who made great recos for places to eat, impressive draught list with many well-known crafters as well as some rarities, decent wine options, fair prices.
What I disliked: We were disappointed that they didn’t have any food available and had to go elsewhere to eat, but we had a lot of fun here so it was all good.
Would I go back? Absolutely. This is a stellar neighbourhood pub with a cool vibe and killer beer menu.
