A truly pioneering beer bar, founded 1992. A ‘must visit’.

Alex says

Founded in 1992 and still going strong, this pioneer features 30 taps (25 or so craft), 100-ish bottles including some vintage offerings, and two cask lines. There’s a back room for diners, who can also take advantage of the tables in the front area. There’s also a small back yard. The meeting place for many craft beer fans, especially the evening of the second Wednesday of the month when the Malted Barley Appreciation Society gathers in the back room or yard. Rare beers often feature, and there are occasional events such as ‘Split Thy Brooklyn Skull’ (strong ale festival) and ‘Belgium 2 Brooklyn’ (Belgian styles on tap). Very highly recommended. (1/2015)

Jezza says

The original, classic Williamsburg beer bar. Still an excellent selection after all these years. c.25 taps & extensive bottled list with many vintage beers. Near Brooklyn Brewery.
