Nice place, great beer selection. Quite a bit of ET on tap, which is to be expected and I am not complaining. Food was great (Confited Duck sandwich was awesome). Atmosphere was not much to talk about, meaning the staff was a little stiff, which rubs we the wrong way. Not a 100 Rating in my humble opinion, but I would frequent if I live close by. Better places in NYC IMO.

Can nobody see this place for what it is... the tasting room for a gypsy brewer?

The bar room is over-designed. The herringbone wood inlay that is EVERYWHERE you look gives me headache, and the mirrors above the back bar with the beers written on them is quite possibly the stupidest design element I've ever seen in a bar. You can't read the writing.

Bartenders and crowd are the most insufferable beer snobs you will ever have the misfortune of spending what could have been quality drinking time with.

Different beer styles being poured at different temperatures, although gimmicky, is a good idea.

Now that Evil Twin is being distributed more widely, my advice is to drink those delicious stouts in better bars.

Why a 4.35? Just b/c I can now do that with the new system.
I can see how this bar would be a terrible place to visit if you went on a crowded day.
That being said, the wife and I went on Sunday at noon (literally it was 12:01 PM) and there were two guys there and then us.
They had two bartenders and I must admit that I see where other reviews about some staff "problems" derive from.
The one bartender wasn't a snob but gave off a little 'tude, where the other guy was completely cool and ended up talking to us for the whole hour we were there.
As for the food we didn't eat, but of course the main reason to come is the beer.
What can I say other than the beer selection, while limited to 21 taps at a time plus an extensive bottle list for here or to go, is incredible.
Beyond the obvious multiple Evil Twin choices are some great domestic and international choices.
The pints are priced on average, maybe a little more, than other Brooklyn bars.
The bottle selection prices are high but that's more of an observation than complaint.
Nice place to visit when no one else is around and you want some excellent craft beer.
