    This place rocks. Great beer, a very Danish, hygge vibe, and you can build your own meat and cheese plate.

    Great ambience, cozy spot, and a good selection of bottled craft beers and beers on tap. Need to know what to buy though, some of which are available elsewhere at $2.

    Great spot for evening drinks, chill low lit vibe. Lots of beer on offer both from the fridges (for your favourite brands) or on tap for some local/different options. Outside area out back. Recommend.

    Huge beer selection (to stay and to go), free Wi-Fi. Only food item is a pretzel, so you already know it's gonna be killer (newsflash: they source their pretzels from Pelzer's http://4sq.com/1blkU55)

    Beer, grilled cheese and good vibes. Diverse tap list with real quality and rarity. Coolers for can/bottle consumption or takeout. Board games. Backyard. A++ in my book.

    Drink it all. Each and every beer. You can’t go wrong. Oh, and the grilled cheese is dope too. Pairs well with a board game in the back corner.

    Super duper packed on the weekends. One of the few bars that stocks actually GOOD alcohol-free beers.

    Has both the best draft beer selection and canned beer selection in Crown Heights / Prospect Heights. For canned beers, you can enjoy on premise or take them to go.

    I don’t think it’s possible to describe how good the grilled cheeses are. Huge selection of beer cans and bottles as well as some drafts.

    One of the best beer lists. Ask the bartender for help. And lovely grass filled backyard. Maybe the best in Brooklyn.

    Loud - but great beer and delicious bratwurst in a tasty pretzel bun. Also check out the huge to-go beer selection.

    It’s probably the best beer bar in NYC in terms of space/aesthetics, and probably somewhere in the #5-10 range in terms of beer selection

    I'm in love with the beer curation. Enjoy one (or several) inside or in the uncluttered backyard

    On a weekend afternoon, play a board game when you enjoy your beer. Jenga and Cards Against Humanity are always good go tos.

    Beer and board games! Also, trivia on Thursday nights is the best :)

    Under the radar somehow, but consistently one of the most enticing tap lists in the area. Amazing bottles, too.

    Bar, beer, and vibe were all cool. Good drafts then you could leave with bottles- sweet! Worst part was the bartender. Not warm, talkative, basically we were intruding on him. 👎
