    Beer is a give in, amazing. But the food was unexpectedly delicious. Great space too!
  • Greg L.
    Skip for the other great, much friendlier options in the hood. Radegast is a better bierhall and Northern Territory a better vibe.
  • Greg L.
    Disappointed. 20 min wait for drinks each time. Dismissive, unfriendly service. Kitchen closes early. Was better before. Northern Territory a far better option 1/2 block away.

    Offensive bartenders...when ordering a cocktail was yelled at "Get the f*** out. welcome to New York b*****." Threw hands up and still charged me for drinks.

    As much as you want to, they won't let you climb on the roof to see the stained glass water tower.

    Nice alternative to the crazy lines at Brooklyn Brewery. Grab a seat then go order food from the kitchen, then grab a tasty beer from the bartender. No waiters here

    Drink pricing was moderate, mousse was tasty though not wildly espresso tasting, bathrooms were oddly propped open so half the restaurant could peer inside each multi-stall room

    The DOG trio band is killer. Stuffed with pulled pork and fried calamari is the only way to listen to this blues, jazz, fusion group! Order food at the kitchen. Mussels aren't too bad.

    The place is great. They brew their own beer and have a solid dinner menu. However, execution of some items on the menu could have been better. Some of the food arrived a bit cold.

    Tucked away amidst a sea of red brick warehouses, this Greenpoint brewpub offers a welcome respite from the cold in the winter—the fireplace helps. ProTip: The brewery offers tours on Sundays. Read more

    The owners of the classic Brouwerij Lane have always been "in deep," with New York beer: beyond the cozy retail/bar combo they have also been importing and distributing to other bars and restaurants.

    The glass garage doors, great for late spring/summer, this winter = freezing. The 1 wood fireplace does not heat a space of this size. You will be keeping your coat on the entire time you are here.
