Cool place, ususally some decent local crafts on tap. Good whiskey selection. Occasional hipster server attitude.

This is not really a beer freak’s destination bar, but it is a good Williamsburg/Greenpoint neighborhood pub with a few interesting items available. I liked the old, all-wooden surroundings. Big windows let in a lot of light. The beer selection was modest, and I don’t know if it changes a lot, but there were brews which do not turn up at every other bar (such as bottles of some Portugese beer I have never seen before). There is not much food available - just a couple of sandwiches on the day I visited. The service was friendly, and the crowd looked mostly young and hip. If I lived nearby, I would drop in regularly.

Not the most fantastic of Greenpoint Beer Bars, but it is a nice place to stop in while on a crawl. They are reworking the bottle list so expect to see consolidation on avail bottles. While we didn’t eat during our visit, they do have food here. It was a nice night, so we sat out on the sidewalk. Service was quite good, but can be hit or miss. No tv’s so it is a good place to sit talk or collect your thoughts.
