Visited at noontime on Saturday, 14.5.16, with my brother and his baby boy in a stroller - this means family friendly, so beware. The best part of the place is the superb, clean design. Minimalistic with attention paid to the tiniest details. This doesn’t necessarily mean customer-friendly, as the seating - pic-nic benches, are very uncomfortable and not designed for an extended stay. Perhaps that’s the point. Service at the bar and the place was way too crowded when we were there.
Great tap list of unique and carefully chosen beers, beautiful glassware, high prices. Worth visiting if in the area, but I think I’ll skip it next time in NYC.
Difficult to find this bar in Brooklyn. Expensive to get to and expensive to stay. 20 some taps and a great bottle list. Did not try any food. Visited late afternoon and it was not that busy. Well worth the time to visit.
Difficult to find, as the signage is nearly nonexistent / difficult to see. Mikkel and Jeppe seem to revel in this sort of setup. Intimate place with a wonderfully curated taplist. No filler beers on tap at all, just excellent stuff from all over. Service was friendly and quick. The prices are just insane though -- I don’t know what justifies charging such prices (cheapest 5 oz. pour was $4, but ranged as high as $8). Mandatory stop in top, but expect a thorough shellacking of your wallet.
Visited on September 22, 2016, in the evening. Not a easy place to find, no noticeable signs, in fact the sign for the pub is a white marble with the name in the same color. Let’s start by the good, the beer selection is very impressive, a quarter of it is Evil Twin. The food menu is small but interesting, I had a roast beef sandwich with sliced beets. The service limited, I had to go to the bar to order and get my beer, at least the food came to your table. And the place is cool and pretentious, a beer snob paradis. This place is not for me!
Nice looking place, but ambiance gets docked for the sheer volume in there. Very very loud, to the point of being difficult to order/have a conversation. Service was absolutely outstanding. Bartenders were friendly and attentive. One went so far as to run down to the basement to grab a bottle for me, even though it was Saturday night and they were slammed. Did it with a smile on his face too. Ate a bit of Welsh rarebit that was excellent, didn’t try anything else but everything around me smelled excellent. Prices are really really high, but I don’t mind paying the premium for a special occasion. On the whole this is about as great of a beer spot as you got possibly ask for, and in a cool neighborhood that’s already worth visiting on its own. A definite must-visit.
A place that truly defines quality over quantity. Have been here many times, and just assumed I’d given it a rating at some point, but apparently I have not. Anyway, great spot. They treat beer with as much respect as anyplace I’ve ever been. Not the largest number of drafts, but extremely well cultivated. They have some pretty good food too. Only gripes would be that it’s a little too small and the prices are a little too high (both of which can be explained by the Brooklyn location). Otherwise, it is over of the top spots not just in NYC, but in the world to grab a beer.
