This place is definitely one of the best neighborhood bars in Park Slope. Seated right along the popular 5th Ave, you might expect this place to draw a lot of attention... but it doesn't. It doesn't stand out or do anything to grab your attention, it simply is what it is.

And it's a great bar. The tap lines are impeccably clean. The staff is awesome. If you stop in, say "hi" to Patrick or Billy. And look for Bobby, the owner too. All of them are world-class individuals.

As far as beer selection goes, yes, they keep the usual standbys. But yo - you gotta give them credit for keeping some rare local microbrews as well. Southhampton and Sixpoint on tap, and you know they appreciate quality if they have Chimay Tripel on tap too.

A great jukebox and a cool crowd, and I guess the food is nice too. I can't wait to go back when the weather is nice so I can see what the hype about the biergarten is all about.

Definitely check this place out.

I walked down to The Gate from Bierkraft during a mini-tour of Park Slope beer joints. It was pretty damn busy and crowded during the Belmont Stakes, with people enjoying the patio tables and filling up the dark bar inside.

Some cool beers on tap: Smutty Wheatwine '09, Dogfish Raison d'Etre, Avery Maharaja, Elysian Super Fizz, Two Bros Atom, Maine Mo, Westbrook, Against the Grain, Hitachino Espresso (vintage)...

The joint was sweaty hot and lively but not loud. It's a neighborhood bar with good beer, with that old-school feel to it. And why not?
