On an exceptionally fun pub crawl through Brooklyn suggested by StonyB (http://beeradvocate.com/forum/read/710792/710792/), Mugs Alehouse was our first stop (actually, Brooklyn Brewery was our first stop, but they were closed when we got there). What a great place. The atmosphere is dark (a little too dark) and laid-back with craft beer paraphrenalia covering the walls from floor to ceiling. Service was fine; although the waitresses were totally inattentive, the bartender was friendly and skilled.

As for the selection, let me just say that it made my jaw drop and my eyes bug out more than once. A superb list, divided by style, with some unusual/rare beers (Fantôme Strange Ghost) and a page of vintage ales, which included a bottle of the first release of Old Foghorn and a Bigfoot from 1997. Overall, the selection is quite large and all good stuff - if you're looking for anything BMC, look elsewhere - the closest thing you'll find to that is Brooklyn Lager. The menu also features helpful annotations explaining styles and individual beers, making this a great place to bring people to introduce them to the world of craft beer.

Overall, a very nice place to enjoy some very nice beer. Definitely check it out if you're in the area. (1,251 characters)

This is a great quiet and unpretentious bar. Great selection on tap and on bottle. Good service. I have been many times and will continue to go back. (149 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)
