Barcade is the most unique and kick-ass beer bar in the area. 24 American beer on draft, no bottles, and a beer engine for cask offerings. We're talking a straight-up beer bar with excellent support for the local beer scene, which is something that I didn't see enough of during a recent trip to Brooklyn.

No real food, just chips and jerky from behind the bar, but you come to Barcade for the beer and ... video games! The bare, unfinished open-space interior is like a dank warehouse, but packed with loads of vintage arcade games that line the walls! Freagin' classic idea! 25 cents a pop. Old-school-style. They've even built make-shift wooden beer benches in-between each game so you can rest your pint of American beer while you're kicking some 80's ass!

Barcade should be at the top of you list if you're visiting the area, and make sure you ask your mom for a buck (you can get change at the bar).

Let's note that the area that Barcade is located is a bit shady ... I swear I heard someone scream out "Warriors come out and Play-ayyy!" before we entered. Barebones garage / warehouse look, lots of vintage video games ... awesome touch by having 2-by-4's in-between each game to rest your beer on. About 24 brewed on tap with one cider ... all are American craft, one cask within the mix. Some specials on as well; Heavyweight Cinged Hammer, Southampton Grand Cru & Blue Point Imp Stout on cask. Most were from the Mid-Atlantic and New England.

By far the most interesting concept for a beer bar I have ever seen, video games and great beer ... what else could you ask for!!!
