If you are looking for a spot to pre-game prior to an event at The Barclay`s Center, this could suit your needs. Pacific Standard is a moderate stroll away from it; or perfect if you live nearby or are in the neighborhood for other reasons.

Anyways, upon walking in, one soon notices photos and other decorations with California themes to go along with the name of this establishment. And I believe that the owners hail from the golden state. The vibe is low-key and friendly. For the beer, they have a tap list with 16 or so offerings. There were quite a few NYC area breweries that were available including Singlecut, Carton, etc.. Or you could go with the Cali theme and order something from Green Flash. The bottle list, I did not check, but I believe a small one is present. In the back, there are some couches and a big TV. Which if the bar gets crowded, gives you the option for a place to stretch out. All in all, a low-key bar with friendly staff members and some good beer options.

Stopped by here during a recent trip to Brooklyn.

This place doesn't look like it from the outside but it is surprisingly large. There is a decent sized seating area with tables and chairs the wrapped around the medium sized bar that's in the middle of the main room. Above the bar is the draft list and two small televisions that both had some college basketball games on. There is also a really cool back room with more seating and is decorated like a study/library. There are several book shelves filled with what look like used antique books. This place has a really cool vibe and was a very fun place to grab some beers.

The selection is pretty solid with a nice combination of east and west coast beers, locals and a few rarities. They had offerings from Stone, Ballast Point, Sierra Nevada, Green Flash, Brooklyn, Chelsea, Sixpoint and Goose Usland BCS all on draft. They also do growler fills at very reasonable prices. I was impressed.

I had a great time here and am looking forward to going back. Recommended.

(From notes)

Nice enough atmosphere when I popped in on a later Saturday afternoon, but it was clear that it was a college football day and the back room was pretty packed with fans. No biggie, as a few seats at the bar were still available. Pretty tidy place, if that makes sense, meaning there wasn't too much clutter or anything but had some character to it. Wood, brick, and a good amount of light which was cool.

The service was prompt and friendly. Nice tap list, and enjoyed a Racer X which is always fantastic to find. Nothing extraordinarily rare, but certainly one of the better selections I've come across in Brooklyn. Good place, and definitely a stop when in the area.

They had only beer opened for a short time when I visited, but it was really great! John has the right attitude and a definite literary bent. Non-readers, beware!

Just as at Cherry Tree, the doorway sat in the center with flanking windows followed by a curtain, then a few booths on either side. The right wall was exposed brick with some stools and a rocking chair (!) culminating in a pair of stained glass windows. The stained glasswas reflected in a mirror which was beautiful. The laminated "U"-shaped bar was along the extended left wall. That was the front half of the space.

A pair of doorways bisected by a knotty-blonde wood panel (think Aunt Rita's basement), plus a few short steps, led up to the back half of the space. This was really the homage to the Pacific West. State flags, college flags, standard tables and chairs inlaid with trading cards of 1970's era players as well as postcards. The back wall was my featured attraction: three bookcases of Bring One, Take One books plus a big-screen projection in the center line. An English-style dartboard was on the left side. Lots of games and diversions, plus the OED. A skylight was installed in the ceiling.

Beer: 15 taps, 5 of which (actually 1/3) were PA beers. 2 casks. Schaeffer in a can, Miller, Bud Light and Hair of the Dog Fred in bottle. Wow.
