    The "Vegetarian" sandwich is easily as good as any of the meaty options. The sandwich is made with baguette, & comes with marinated eggplant, mozzarella, pesto, oil-cured olives, & hot pepper relish. Read more

    Local beer heaven in Park Slope! We had a growler of Carton Brewing's Boat Beer (Atlantic Highlands, NJ) and ogled the endless American craft beers. Gourmet food w/ local desserts, cheeses, and meats! Read more

    Spend the afternoon / evening on the back patio with growlers of an amazing selection of beers on tap that you won't find anywhere else in NYC. If you're hungry, you can't go wrong with any sandwich

    Easily the best craft beer shop in the city. HUGE selection of beers from around the country that you can’t find anywhere else. Buy a growler for tap fresh beer and the sandwiches are good too.

    On a Saturday night, get there around 8:30 to grab a back patio table before the place fills up at 9. Once you're in, beer options are the best in town: e.g. gluten free, craft, Newcastle for $2.75 :D

    If you like your sandwiches rustic, French-ish and delicious, with a side of delicious on-tap beers, Bierkraft is for you. Tiny but cute backyard is a plus, too!

    The Italiano: prosciutto di Parma, hot sopressata, deliciously fatty-edged ham roasted in-house, "Petit Jesu" salami, and a shower of Pecorino Sardo with fresh arugula, roasted peppers, and tomato. Read more

    It's all kinds of 'frat-party'-chic in here. But oh soo good. Take your palate on a wild adventure. It's one of Park Slope's finest.

    My favorite thing to get is avocado, goat cheese with honey, and arugula on a giant baguette. Not so expensive when you consider it's two meals. (If you're me, though, it's never two meals.)

    Great selection of rare/imported beers. The Serrano ham sandwich is, arguably, the best sandwich I've had in my life. A growler is half a gallon and costs between $13-17. Oh yes.

    Excellent rotating craft beer selection. Pretty much every sandwich on the menu is great- try the Serrano ham or roast beef for starters.

    Superlative service; lovely outdoor patio with great music; large selection of house-cured meats and beers, including two rotating cask ales.

    Artisanal sandwiches and charcuterie plates are the perfect compliment to weekly beer tastings, gift baskets, and limited edition local brews.

    Have a pint or two of craft beer to stay, then take a growler to go! Great bottle selection, too. On a nice day, enjoy your brews out in their backyard!

    Pricier than Brooklyn's other beer stores, but worth it because you can actually drink the beers you buy on location. The heavy guy working the tap counter needs to chill the fuck out though. No need Read more

    Grab a few of the sea salted caramels from the jar on the counter, but beware, they are highly addictive. Get of the sandwich specials or the meatloaf to go with a local craft beer. This place rules.

    Great beer selection. Clean lines. Clean glasses. Succeeds at the basics where so many other beer enthusiast venues fail.

    Not my usual sandwich pick but the Roast Beef rocked! The Serano was good but the fig spread was overpowering. Huge portion. And...Zapps chips!

    If you don't want to bring your growler in but still want to save money, you can borrow a house growler to enjoy while there.

    Beer tastings every Tuesday night! Starts around 7pm. Get there a little early and order a sammich - I recommend the Vegetarian.

    Their selection rotates so the keg is always fresh. This makes a difference. Captain Lawrence Pale Ale at any other bar is just a good choice. Here, it's a revelation.
