Was here for the Founder's Tap Takeover 5/16.
A - Has a hipster vibe. Place looked like and old building from the outside. Chalkboard listed the selections. Crowd was a good mox of beer drinkers and locals wandering about.
Q - Not a fancy place but it had a cozy feel.
Serv - You have to order everything at the bar. Service was slow and if I wasn't with folks for the event it might have taken much longer to get food\beer. But all pours were in the proper glassware.
Sel - 10 taps of Founders including Curmudgeon's Better Half. I checked the beermenus list and they seem to have a great selection all the time. Bottles of Cantillion were available.
F - Has the bacon cheeseburger (recommended on foursquare) and it was good. Average portion.
V - For a craft beer place, and one in NYC, this was a fair price. Pints of craft beer for as low as $5 is more than reasonable.
I don't know if I'll be out that way again, but I'd recommend DW as a place to get some good beer.

Spent a few hours here on New Years Eve (before we did the Midnight Run at Prospect Park-nothing like running a 5k drunk on good beer).
I thought this would be really crowded since it was NYE, however we walked in and found 2 empty seats at the bar.
Nice fun atmosphere...looks like an old time bar mixed with hipster decor and beer posters and signs. Nice long bar with a chalkboard listing all the brews...about a dozen or so. Nice selection...I think 10 of the 12 were brews I never had. They poured the brew in appropriate glass which is very important to me.
They said they had a cask, but empty when I was there. They are always updating the beer list on beermenus.com as well.
The service was what you would expect from a bunch of hipsters...nice but stand-off-ish at the same time...its Brooklyn!
The food looked awesome, but didnt have any.
Prices were very reasonable for NYC...around $6/beer.
Overall, id go back in a minute.
