The first time I was there was when my company did my going away party when I transferred out of Brooklyn back in '99 (don't worry, I'm back). My DVP commented to me that only I could have found a place so diverse. It was a melting pot of the Brooklyn populas.
I now frequent Mug's as my after-brewery bar on Friday nights. The tap selection is always wonderful. Currently there are 4 Anchors and 6 Brooklyns (including the Triple) on. They've always got a Weisse, they've always got a Wit. And the floaters vary from the Liefman's Goudenband to the Dogfish Head Chicory Stout to the Storm King Imperial Stout. What's that?? Cask? Sure, they've got a cask or two running. Tonight, it was some very nice English porter. 20 ounce beers for under $4 a clip? Can't beat that with a stick. And be sure to have a looksie at the bottled beer list that includes some crazy vintage stuff at great prices (a 9 year old Sierra Nevada bigfoot anyone?)
And grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreat food, too. Always a good bowl of soup and an excellent pasta to be had there or I could just as easily go for the bacon cheddar burger and fries. They've got a good jukebox and bartenders who know their beer. Can't wait for that Split Thy Skull event on the 23rd. (1,232 characters)

One of my favorite places in the city. Great quality and selection both on tap and bottle. Food is basic pub fare(burgers, wing sect.) but is actually quite decent. Beer menu displayed digitally at bar. Cool old school bar feel. There are tvs for sports and a pinball machine. The crowd is cool and low key.( no frat boys) Spacious bar with two rooms, a long bar, plenty of tables and a patio in the back. The staff is friendly. Great place. (441 characters)

Service is really great. Ber selection was impressive. Burgers were very good. I would go back without hesitation. Maine Lunch, Bell's Hopslam on tap, among many other notables. (177 characters)

Some of the taps are too warm. Had to go with a bottle to share last time.
What are we, in England? (100 characters)
