Without question, a NYC institution. As long as there's a market for craft beer, there will be Mug's Ale House.
Just three blocks from the Bedford Avenue stop on the L train, this place is packed to the gills almost every night. On the weekends? Fuggedaboutit. Don't be suprised if its standing room only.
The bar is a conjunction of two low-lit, cavernous type rooms that have been incensed by a steady flow of beer over the past decade. There are about two dozen taps, half of which are permanent and the other half rotating. In addition, through the fall and winter months there are also a couple of cask lines as well.
The service is the shining star at this place. Whether its the bartenders or the cocktail waittresses or servers, every experience I've had at this bar has been impeccable.
The food is good for pub food, and there are some light and healthy options on the menu as well.
As far as value goes, you can't beat this place. Nearly all beers are only $4 per IMPERIAL pint, which is one hell of a bargain for NYC.

Great, pretense free neighborhood bar with an ever changing draft list of quality bees and pretty awesome wings. Dark wood and dimly lit like any good bar should be. The pricing is certainly reasonable, especially when compared to some of the other places in Williamsburg.
The bartenders are all friendly and knowledgable. John rules.
