Fantastic new place in greenpoint - about 3 blocks from Brooklyn Brewery. 12 of their own brews plus 4 or 5 guest german taps. I had 2 full pints of a saison and belgian pale, and tried their schwarzbier and porter - all really great. They offer "euro" sizing structure - small 0.2L all the way up to 1L. Nice looking interior and comfortable spacious seating. Garage doors open on nice days. Bar pours other spirits and wine. They have a kitchen and the food looked pretty good. Nice bartenders and staff in general. All prices were very reasonable - especially for NYC. All around, an awesome place I will definitely be visiting again. If I can remember the names of the beer I had, I will add them! Oh, one downside - no website!!! In this day and age, that is crucial. It was hard to just find an address when trying to navigate there (before this place was created on BA).

I walked by this place once a while ago while working to a catering venue nearby for work, and when a friend of mine got married at that same venue months later, I knew I had to check it out.

So there we went, already tipsy from all the free Bulleit at the wedding. Dirck the Norseman has got not only a great name to itself but a nice space as well, large like a beer hall and with enough seats and tables to host an army of Viking beer drinkers.

Ordering at the bar was easy and quick on a Saturday night, and I was surprised by the two massive jars of beer I got for only seven bucks. 1/2 liter, I swear, ladies and gentleman!

We went for the Smash St pale ale, good hoppy stuff, and the Detonator smoked dopplebock. Very good stuff! Also on tap were a smoked red rye, a Bamberg-style Hefe and a couple of German brews and cider.

Food is ordered separately- I went for the spinach-and-marrow soup and the goose-fat fries. Both looked better on the menu than in real life, but they weren't bad.

This place is on my radar and I'll be sure to come around again soon.

Pretty good place and went on a Sunday afternoon and the place had a laidback party vibe. The selection isn't large but it's worth going to try some of their beers or guest taps as well as other drinks. Service was quick and friendly and although you can't order food at the bar (have to go up to a food window and separately order your food), I must say the food is pretty good. Also, the beer and food prices are cheap, especially considering it's NYC. Worth a visit if you're up in Brooklyn (especially if you're a tourist and want to find a non-pretentious bar).
