Definetly a must stop when in NY, on the border of greenpoint and Willamsburg, an easy walk from the L train.
Went on a Thursday night around 7:30-10.
Very cool unassuming facade with no signage. Well designed simple interior, tap set up seems very professionally done. Al beer seemed fresh and served in appropriate containers and glass ware.
As others have mentiond, really liked the choice if three sizes (for both price, ability to try more and for sanity's sakes). Scrutinsed the tap list, ordered and the bartender would aknowledge your order by giving you a run down of the characteristics of the beer (reminescient of a high end restaurant ). At first i mistook this as the bartender being really knowlwdable only to realize when ordering off the bottle list that the spiel was given them to memorize. Not really a complaint so much as I just a realizatiomthat i shouldn't rely to heavy on their opions. Service was overall good, there was one point where there was a rush of people for a half hour and the bar was overwhelmed, but other wise care was taking In the pouring of beer.

Menu List the tap offerings and a selection of bottles. There is another whole bottle list that you can ask for with many more offerings.

Nice selection, alot of Evil Twin as you would expect, many I have never seen.

The main thing I would mention is that there is now a restaurant hidden in the back - Luksus, only been around a couple of weeks and is super hyped right now. It only seats 26 and they only do a few seatings a night - for a $74 fixe price plus an additional $43 for beer pairing per person. It seemed very expensive and I only heard more about it after the fact so I did 't even consider going. The bummer was that one person that I did a trade with mentioned he was able to buy BA Justin at Torst. I asked the bartender about it (after already ordering quite a bit) and at first he acted like no problem only to come and tell me that he was just told that it was now only for the restaurant... Subsequently I heard that the beer served in the back was impressive, but with out any specifics. Had I known I would have considered the splurge since I only get out to NY every few years.

All in all I had a great time and every beer I had was really good or better.

Visited back in December 2014. Not what I think of when I think beer bar but great nonetheless. The vibe is hip, it is Williamsburg you know. Went around 8 pm on a weeknight and it was pretty busy. Dimly lit inside, with ambient music playing in the background, set a relaxed mood. The place is outfitted with reclaimed wood tables and a marble bar. Staff seemed eager to help and asked if I had any questions about anything. A quarter of the draft list was Evil Twin stuff, also had a handful of things I couldn't get around my neck of the woods. Didn't try the food. Would go back next time I'm in BK

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.
