A laid back neighbourhood bar, all taps rotate regularly.

Directions - J train to Kosciuszko Street, take the eastern exit, immediately turn right at a 45 degree angle on Patchen Avenue and continue for six short blocks to the junction of Monroe Street. Alternatively, if travelling from Manhattan in the weekday rush hour, you can take the Z train one stop further on the same line to Gates Avenue (it skips Kosciuszko Street), take the eastern exit, turn right on Monroe Street for two long blocks. The J also stops there off-peak and weekends.

Alex says

This is a laid back and friendly neighbourhood corner bar which first opened January 2016, situated in the eastern fringes of Bed-Stuy. There are 18 rotating taps, almost all of which are rotating craft beers. The back of the bar is rough scoured panelling, unrepainted, for a rustic look. Bar food is limited to sandwiches and pretzels. The space used to be a candy store, then latterly a 'store front' church of the type common to the area. I would rather give my praise to the current incumbents for creating a great drinking space in an area with not much around otherwise. (1/2016, updated 2/2016)
