Super fantastic gotta say.... Staying in "The Slope" visiting and was impressed. Not just more than one Flemish Sour but something called "Goze"; not Gueze, but I guess you'd call it a salty sour...
Also had another sour bottled, which I have to say "Monk's Flemish Sour", which I can't remember who makes but it's been my fav has just been supplanted by this one: Cuvee Des Jacobins Rouge Flemish Sour", mmm. Also had and this crazy but wonderful "Old Monk's Ale", from Pannepeut. Wow, just went and went and went and went and well, it was quite nice...
To boot the server was very personable, knowledgable, yet unpretentious. Overall quite a nice experience as we traverse a few of the Belgian Beer hot spots as we find out about them, primarily here... We've mapped out apparently "the big 3", but they are a bit north in brooklyn from here and unless they are subway accessible and easily so, we might not get to em since there really appears to be great options right here. Ahhh, New York, we'd be happy for one place in northern arizona/sedona area (other than the wine loft, but that's in Flagstaff, check em out if ever there; tweny or so Belgian's always) that has what most every decent bar does here... Yeah...

Went here before heading to the Barclay Center to see the Brooklyn Nets
A - 6pm on a Monday and there is a happening crowd and plenty of craft beer hobbyists. Good vibe.
Q - Glasswarewas on point, menus updated (including their Beermenus site), and taps appeared to be taken care of from what little I could gather.
Serv - You need to go tothe bar to order anything. But the place is small enough that ts no biggie, and the bartender knew his stuff.
Sel -top notch. Stillwater Saison, Ommegang Art of Drakness, and plenty of other goodies. 27 taps and a cask, plus a 50+ bottle list.
Food - none but they do have free popcorn.
V - Pricing was okay. $6 a pour seemed very fair for what they were tapping.
I'd go back here. One of the many really good spots in Brooklyn for rare releases and old favorites.

Fourth Avenue Pub is an unassuming storefront bar on, huh, 4th Avenue near the Atlantic Avenue transportation hub. Great view of the Williamsburgh Savings Bank Tower before you enter!
A cramped entrance, with the bar literally "right there" and a narrow hallway with some high-top tables by the wall. But then the joint expands and offers some comfy booths and a patio out back.
Cool, chill ambience with tame 80's punk music playing and just the kind of quiet the wife and I seek on a Friday evening at 5:30 pm. You couldn't walk into a Midtown Manhattan at this time!
I counted 27 taps plus one cask (Greenport/Bierkraft Supeh Freekeh). A bunch of rarities on tap, including Allagash Saison, Bruery Mischief, Cisco Woods Monomoy Kriek, Clown Shoes Claw Fist, Laughing Dog Barrel-Aged Dogfather, Oskar Blues Deviant and Mikkeller/Three Floyds Boogoop. Also a bunch of German lagers if you care for that.
Reasonable prices, $6-$7 for most beers except Delirium and Boogoop which are $8 or higher. One dollar off during Happy Hour, and our four beers came to sixteen dollars! Can't complain at all.
There is no table service you have to order at the bar, but they're pretty chill in there. And while there is no food, they do have a great popcorn machine with fresh stuff and Old Bay to sprinkle on top.
Yeah, I will be back!
