STopped in on a Friday night
Crowd is mostly 20-30 trendster/hipsers from Brooklyn, dont forget your tight jeans. Actually walked right by the place, its set back a little with a lot of graffiti out front on it, looks almost like a warehouse. They have a few benches out front for smoking, i can't remember if you were allowed to drink out there. Pretty large in side, about 20 seats at the bar, a bunch of tables/booths too. And oh yea theres about 25 old school arcade games (frogger, tetris, donkey kong, astriod, the budweiser bartending game, etc) all only costing 25 cents (dont worry about having to bring a pocket full of quarters, they have a change machine there), and complete with a drink holder on the side of them. Freakin awesome.
Pretty diverse tap list, 2 casks, no bottles (except for hard liquor, dogfish liquor btw if thats your fancy) Weyerbacher had just had an event there so there was about 6 offerings from them along with, chelesa, climax, brooklyn, southern tier, sixpoint, fishermans, victory and more. Their website is pretty up to date with the current offerings. Like to see a bar stock alot of good local stuff
As for as food there is just, peanuts, chips, and beef jerky. Barteners were quick, friendly, and knowlegable,
Overall a kickass place to hang out, play some old school video games, and kick back some good beer, easy to reach via the G or L subway too

It's a bar that's also an arcade. Get it? What more is there to say?
Fine. I can say a bit more. They have good prices on great beer (most beers are $6, many beers have over 90 on Beer Advocate. They've even had Bourbon County Stout on draft a few times!). I believe happy hour runs 7 days a week. Happy hour means beers are $1 cheaper. Marble Madness is a really fun game but I don't really want to promote it because I like how no one's ever playing it when I go there. It's also impossible to beat by level 4. Anyway, this place gets super crowded pretty early on Friday and Saturday nights, but during the day and during the week, it's a great, spacious place to chill out.
I come here 9 out of 10 times I'm in Williamsburg. You should too.
