First time I went to Spuyten Duyvil was sometime in January on a Saturday night. The place was packed and I felt like a sardine in a can. Itís a tiny place and when itís packed it can be annoying. Went again in late June on a Sunday afternoon and boy what a difference. The outdoor section was open and we had a few beers outside. Nice set-up. Good selection. Would recommend anytime except on a Saturday night!!!
Would like to go more often, but it is a hike out to Brooklyn. Some great beers frequent this bar, rare bottle list can be expensive. Events are worth going to if you have the cash.
Need to revisit, but i enjoy this more than I used to.
Quite disappointing to be honest. Run down place with only six taps. None of them very exciting when we visited. Guess it was good before the beer scene exploded in NYC. No reason to go here again in my opinion.
This bar has a good vibe, and a very friendly bartender, who knows his beers. But if I wanted some Freigeist, I didnít have to come to the US. Selection in here was very dissapointing. The beers really werenít my style. Very expensive as well. We got out quick. Wouldnít go back.
Iíve missed it the first time, walked right past it. There is no sign outside so itís easy to overlook. Itís a pretty small place, but nicely decorated, feels cozy. Very nice backyard patio, feels bit magical like youíre not in NYC. Tap selection is limited to 6 taps, emphasis on Belgian and European beer styles. Same thing with bottle selection which is quite pricey. Service could be better, not the kindest people behind the bar. No WiFi. Considering it has such a high score on RB Iíve expected a bit more. However there are interesting brews on tap and itís a pleasant place. Worth visiting, but donít expect too much.
