In short, this is Evil Twin/Jeppeís answer to MikkelerBAR only in New York instead of Copenhagen. Came with the entire NYC ratebeer group for a Saturday afternoon. Secret, unassuming white door is your entrance. Could easily pass by without knowing it was here. Interior is clean, simple, woodwork and white. Long bar with a long mirror displaying the tap list on handwritten white marker. All tap beers served in stemmed wine glasses, smaller 8oz pours and larger 12+ oz pours. Prices were reasonable up to $8 per pour. Selection is a case of quality over quantity: Probably 20 taps but excellent diversity with focus on Evil Twin of course, Belgian, other Danish beers. Tap list when I was there was lacking in American beers but no matter. Keg rotation here is quick, nothing insane like Ma Che Siete but certainly very quick with no stale keg backlog. Special edition one-off stuff on tap that you will never find anywhere else like Port BA Even More Jesus, Gin Barrel 1809 Berliner. Bottle list is insane. Letís just say that if there is a rare bottle of beer youíve been after, try and ask if it is available even if not on the menu. Food plates were cured meats, Danish rugbrod, pickled vegetables, olives. All very high quality, perfect for beer pairing. It is clear that Jeppe knows exactly what is needed when trying a flight of different specialties beers. The restaurant in the back is not open yet, but once it is, I have no doubt the food quality will be extremely high. Very cozy, clean, happening place. Was very crowded and hopping at 3-4pm on Saturday and Iím sure continued like that until close. Service was quick, on the ball, understood all of our crazy orders, clearly trained well and understand beer. Did not make me wait for more than 1-2 minutes for an order despite the large crowd. Had the great privilege to chat with Jeppe 1 on 1 for about 15 minutes. Pretty amazing experience. Even got to meet Elliot!
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 doesnít necessarily mean customer-friendly, as the seating - pic-nic benches, are very uncomfortable and not designed for an extended stay. Perhaps thatís 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 Iíll 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 donít 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. Letís 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, didnít try anything else but everything around me smelled excellent. Prices are really really high, but I donít 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 thatís already worth visiting on its own. A definite must-visit.
