Stopped in for a quick beer. A great little space with a decent draught list but an impressive bottle list.

I actually did walk past this place....Didnít have any identification besides the name on the mailbox, which luckily my friend was able to spot. It actually looked like a barbershop with the type of seating in the window. When I went in it had a very quaint feel with all of the ummm pieces of flair (if thats the right word). Luckily we were able to beat a rush at 5 and grab two bar seats. When I looked in front of me I realized why this place had the ranking it does. There was easily 100-150 bottles (50-75 from belgium alone) available (written on a chalkboard and stored underneath the countertop). Unfortunately I could only try two in the hour I was there (20 minutes of that deciding what I wanted to try). The bartenders were extremely knowledgeable, with the one picking out the perfect belgium sour to go with my friends cheese and bread. The cheese was very good, but cheese and meet platters are pretty much all that is available foodwise (bringing the lower food rating even if what is there is good). Also, there are only about 8 beers on draft (but are all spectacular). Plan on spending money...all bottles are 8$ or more (up to 30 for 750mL). Awesome place to come and enjoy something that canít be found anywhere else in the USA.

A tremendous ode to beer. Some of the most interesting choices Iíve seen and the best trained staff around. A must see if in NYC.

Was in NYC for New Yearís Eve and decided to check this place out while we were in Brooklyn. Luckily I had read enough about it to be able to spot it as it is virtually unmarked, and despite reading so much hype, went in with subdued expectations. We arrived just about as it was opening, so seating wasnít an issue and the service was quick. Noticed some Cantillons on the board, but they were out, so I went with the Evil Twin Before, During, and After Christmas on tap. Since it was mild out (Dec. 31!) we have a beer out back in their spacious beer garden, which was very cool. We then returned inside to find the place starting to fill up, so we grabbed a table inside and shared a cheese plate. The cheese and beer was good and the overall atmosphere was pretty cozy despite being so obscure. Although they only had 6 or so taps, they were all pretty solid, and their bottle selection was pretty varied as well. Not sure if I will ever be in the Brooklyn area again, but if I am, Spuyten Duyvil will be on my list of places to visit.

Went here on a Friday night and it was pretty crowded so I didnít have much chance to chat with the bartenders. Fairly pricy. Not much under $10. They will give out samples. Had a lot of good breweries mainstays when I was there but not much that was super rare or intriguing.

Went here for the Oktoberfest celebration on October 18th. Good atmosphere, smallish with a nice backyard-type area with tables. Didnt try the food but the beer was very good and the selection is amazing. The main knock on this place though is the value- most beers are going to be $8+ for a pint anywhere up over $20. If you have the dough its a great place to go- even so its good to go just to try out some rare beers.

If you love sours, this is the place to visit. Fantastic selection revolving mainly around Belgians, rare Scandinavian beers, and sours. But it will cost you dearly: this is among the most overpriced beer bars I visit. I do stop in from time to time but often find myself not wanting to shell out ~$40 for a bottle that catches my eye. Really happy to live nearby though!

Hello ! This place is remind me the place where I work, in belgium ! Crowded of youth and less youth people, two barmen, a lot of humour hidded and less hidded everywhere. The service was more than good, the only place in the east coast where they pour the beer more than correctly (with an another place in Portland Main). Selection is really nice, I really enjoyed the place. [And for eating, just cross the street and go to the garage in front (ask to the bartenders).]

Top notch Belgian selection, great staff, love the cheese & charcuterie... Fun place to try something obscure. Gets so damn crowded though!
