Have been here on a couple of Saturday nights. Nice atmosphere and lighting but somewhat spoiled by overly loud music. Beer selection always seems to be very solid but the wine is pretty much undrinkable. This place is super popular with the locals and attracts a reasonably mixed crowd. By all reasonable measures this is a proper pub and I should like it a lot more than I do. Not sure whatís missing.
Dark two room bar with classic feeling. 21 beers on tap - all craft, not particulary local but interesting list. Service was friendly. On Sunday afternoon this was not hipster place but had more like a dive bar character. Worth of check if you are around.
Great Brooklyn craftbeer bar on Smith Street not far from a number of other classics in the same neighborhood. This one is a bit older with a lot of character. The beer selection is really great (had a red beet beer when there recently), and the staff is very helpful. The place is a bit of a dive bar but definitely in a good way. They allow dogs too...so you know their good people. This is a must stop on any Brooklyn pub crawl.
While itís not my neighborhood, this is a fantastic neighborhood bar slightly in the dive-y end of the spectrum that has a an awesome easy going draft menu. The bartender was fast and playing the best tunes Iíve heard in a bar in a while. Proper. I should have come years ago. Shame on me.
A nice small pub how I like them, this is not a nice family resto-pub, this place has a true beaten up neighbourhood pub feel to it. Two small rooms with random furniture that look like the stuff people leave behind on moving day. About 20 taps with the likes of Ithaca, Sly Fox, Kelso, Middle Ages, Bear Repulic and so on. I had a Bear Republic Black Mamba. I didnít look at the bottle list, more than enough on top for me. I donít think they have real food, maybe little snacks, this is really a watering hole. Crowd was eclectic in style and age with all type of people from 21 year old to 50 year old. I liked that place. I like that type of small Ďtrue pubí with a good beer selection.
