Cool looking spot. Narrow bar with tall, narrow bar tables running perpendicular to the axis of the main room. The walls are covered with beer shelves that are full of bottles for purchase, either to drink here or for take out. The nice thing is that you can try pours from some pricy bottles that they pour by the glass. These are usually bottles that would run 25-50 bucks and even though the pours are pricy, they are less than you’d pay for a bottle. Service is top notch and the owners are attentive without being obtrusive. It is very pricy though, so be prepared for a bit of sticker shock. It’s still kind of a cool concept though and worth checking out.
Pretty small bar in Brooklyn that offers a few rotating taps and a large, above average, bottle lineup. They also had a cask ale available when I was there (Defiant Porter). Prices were a little high for but the beer they had on tap that day weren’t easy to find elsewhere. The owner and bartenders were very knowledgeable and seemingly passionate about there profession. The homemade snacks were amazing, had the jerky and dried watermelon. I’ll definitely go back next time I’m in Brooklyn.
number (about 6 to 8 lines) but you are almost guaranteed to find a few unusual items. Bottle selection is where things get really interesting and also really pricey. They get a varied selection of fancy bottles. I’ve been there twice in the past few years and I’ve seen fancy imports, BFM single barrels, the ultra-pricey Baladin Xyauyù, Captain Lawrence Rosso e Marrone , and so on and so on… But what’s cool is that they sell beers by the glass. Every night a selection of their pricey bottles are available by the glass. Still not cheap but a lot cheaper than buying the whole bottle. They also have more affordable beers so after a few pricey sours I played safe and bought a bottle of Green Flash West Coast IPA for $5. Food is more like really fancy snacks. As as for the service, well, it might just be the best service I’ve ever had. It seems to be a brother and sister operation and they are both super friendly and they really want your visit to be memorable. This is definitely a place I will go back to.
A nice beer bar owned by a married couple, Justin and Tricia, who are awesome people. They have an ever-changing bottle selection organized from lightest to most intense with some really interesting stuff on the list. Service is great - Justin will discuss beers with you and is really knowledgeable. Haven’t tried the food but I hear it’s solid.
My one complaint is that it’s pretty damn expensive. Bottle prices can be really steep and when I’ve been there, tap prices have been at least $7.
Beer table...is not like any beer place I’ve been so it’s hard to compare. It’s an amazing concept restaurant with everything that is great about Brooklyn represented from ingredients, menu, and style. It’s tiny...not a bar but a place to have a meal with a reservation or snacks at an off hour with one of the most obscure and carefully curated beer list I’ve ever read through. The owners are visionaries and the staff pro. A few caveats...they may not have a vegetarian option and the prices for beer are at the high end of the high end in NYC. It’s well worth it though at least as an occasion.
Stopped in here while visiting NYC. We ordered a few small plates (2 cheese plates, the walnuts & the beef jerky) all of which were really good. Only had a couple of beers, but chatted with the owner for a bit while we were there. Awesome spot. I will be back for sure.
Now this is the first place of its kind that I have come across, altho Ithere may be more like it on the way. Because (as one online reviewer said) here they treat beer like wine. Upon seeing the simple wooden tables and modest lighting, you might think you walked into a high end sake bar and not a beer joint. The employees were friendly and helpful, even if they did seem just a little snobbish. The menu is limited, but interesting - I had some pickled pumpkin that was pretty cool. The beer selection was not big but it was very interesting, with a bunch of European beers that I had never heard of before being poured - and here is the rub - being poured for as much as $12 or so for an 8-12 ounce glass. Ouch. Still it is worth an occasional visit. Bring a date here and impress her with your good taste. Or maybe someday when every city has a few places like it, you can say you went to the first one.
Tucked in a cute section of Brooklyn’s Park Slope, this tiny eatery is easily overlooked. Its understated black exterior features a small sign, and that is all. Inside there are just three extended picnic tables, but Beer Tables love for good beer and food is immediately evident. The "tap" list includes a hand-picked selection of tough-to-find micros, and often features some imported sours or other unusual beers. I had Hopfenstark, De Dolle, and Captain Lawrence, for example. The food is also wonderful, served as bit-sized h’orderves, all interesting and delicious. A must-go for those looking for local, creative, and very much progressive beer-based dining. My only reservation is that many of Beer Tables selections are on the pricey side.
