Hipster heaven! The wife and I decided to check out Barcade, one of the few Williamsburg-area beer bars we hadn't explored yet. I was lured by Bourbon County online but they did not have it tapped at the moment. Bummer.

The joint sits in a fancified part of Bklyn with lots of new condos. The exterior belies how cavernous Barcade really is inside. Coming from Manhattan, I was quite stunned at the amount of real estate here. Took me a while to figure out that Barcade stand for bar+arcade. D'oh! The wife had fun revisiting old games from the 80's; me, I didn't know a single one.

24 taps and a cask, including 2 exclusive drafts (one was out, Sixpoint Bolshoi). Lots of Bell's beers, such as Expedition, Java and Cherry as it coincided with the arrival of the brewery in NYC. Also Allagash Red Howes, Climax Cherry Snow Plow, Stone Matt's, a couple of Sixpoint brews... quite alright but not amazing, so I went for a bourbon (Blanton's rules)

Service was classic W'burg hipster: that I-am-standing-right-in-front-of-you-not-giving-a-fuck-and -talking-to-my-friends-because-I-am-a-hipster-bartender attitude. Thank goodness for yoga or I would slap one of these tenaciously annoying, cooler-than-thou folks.

Not bad prices, great atmosphere. But other than that, I much prefer Mug's, dba, Torst and other beer bars in the area.
