    Go to Gowanus Yacht Club spend an afternoon drinking beers, and eating various bar foods.

    Its not a yacht club FYI

    This is the place to be for day drinking. They serve beers in cans or pitchers for cheap and they grill meats. On super hot days they have misters. Wear your hipster shades if you go.

    Dan W. is a cool guy who checks into venues that are closed for the season.

    Long live Dan W., the mayor who changed everything.

    drink old Milwaukee and eat burgers with pickles and ballpark nachos on side!

    If you get anything but the grab bag to drink, you should probably just go and fuck yourself because you are a pompous rich aristocratic asshole.

  • Cabrone B.

    Two Random Cans = $5. Can't go wrong.

    Live the high life. Get some wine in a tiny plastic bottle or ask for a mystery beer (it'll be $3 - it'll also be the crappiest beer they have - drink lots of them).

  • Derik B.

    Love this place! $16 for a pitcher of Duff? $2 for a hotdog? $1 for pickles? WTF??? YES!!

    Perfect watering hole. Got no plans, no place to be, then no reason not to throw a few back here. Nice pop-up summer bar. It's the best.

    WillMcD · July 17, 2013
  • Brian M.

    Fun, outdoor place. All the joys of a party/bbq, but none of the clean-up. Dirt cheap too.

    Brian Masefield · January 15, 2012
  • Kara K.

    I could hang out here from morning until, well, the next morning. And I have.

    get the pulled pork when they have it

    Amy Winnewisser · May 26, 2009

    It’s a great spot to sit outside and drink a few cold ones. You’ll know it’s time to leave when you have to use the restroom. Beware – it’s not for the faint of heart!

    CITY GRIT · August 9, 2014
  • Daniel M.

    Outdoor seating with burgers, hot dogs, and pitchers of beer for very cheap. Perfect.

    2 for $5 cheap beer grab bag is where it's at.

    Tuesdays = $1 oysters.

    This summertime beer garden is a dirty beach bum’s dirty hipster’s paradise, complete with dirt cheap burgers and hot dogs, and the added lure of Styrofoam cups of beer starting at one dollar. Read more

    Pork Slap me!

    Where they use a hairdryer to air the coals on the grill.

    Jenn · September 22, 2011
  • Brandi K.

    Couple of PBRs and a hot-off-the-grill all-beef hot dog is not a bad way to spend an afternoon.

    Brandi Koskie · August 20, 2011

    Outdoor Pabst Blue Ribbons - hard to beat

    Warren Cohen · August 15, 2011

    More hot sauce.

    It's like if Forest Gump threw a picnic.

    How can one hate a cheap-beer-surprise-grab-barrel? Holla at some Schlitz.

  • Nathan C.

    22 of ballantine is a no-brainer

    Nathan Caress · June 4, 2010
  • Matt F.

    Can't beat the cooler full of Carling Canada Black Label, Pabst Blue Ribbon & Schlitz.

    if there's an american guy with a mohawk, a bit on the older side, a bit on the sinewy side too: buy him a canned beer, and tell him "i hear you are the hot knob guy." he won't punch you.

  • Craig A.

    More fun than hood sliding over the General Lee! Awesome hot dogs, great beers and just enough white trash atmosphere to keep things nice and country!

    Craig Alshin · July 28, 2009
  • Alex R.

    Perfect spot to drink a few beers outside when the weather is nice. One of my favorite spots in the neighborhood.

    spicy dog $4, burgers $5 and get it with thick cut bacon added. outdoor seating

    The best summertime day drinking spot.

    Half sour pickles is where it's at.

    Jaclyn · September 13, 2014
  • Liam K.

    No french fries, so don't even bother asking!

    Liam K. · August 24, 2014

    Just the perfect amount of crappy. Unbeatable atmosphere!

    Leave your white pleated pants at home cause the double burger is straight outta Super Sloppy Double Dare. It's smothered in sauerkraut and a delicious steal at 8 bucks.

    J Crowley · August 7, 2014
  • Tom M.

    The double burger is the best in Brooklyn --- have it with a ice cold draft of Pacifico

    Tom Mansfield · August 6, 2014
  • First We Feast

    Frosty beer comes in plastic cups, and burgers and hotdogs are cooked on a makeshift grill. Be sure to bring cash to pay for your afternoon of outdoor boozing. Read more

    Drink all the beer !

    Consistently horrific service here. Drink enough to not care.

    Chris Vodola · June 1, 2014
  • Noah W.

    Pretend you're on a boat and you need to eat as many $1 pickles as possible to prevent scurvy (price is real).

    Noah Weiss · May 29, 2014
  • Joe K.

    Great burgers
