26 taps and no clunkers, that's always a good thing right out of the gate. A handful of staples like Guinness, Bodingtons & Old Speckled Hen and then a plethera of quality american micros and some good Euros. I had the Anchor OSA '02 while FeloniusPhil (you've changed man, you've changed) had the Leffe Brown but second guessed himself thinking maybe he should have had the Allagash Grand Cru. A nice clean bar with an outside beer garden and they've got darts and some good chill space in the back of the bar. Nice Guinness and Irish themes throughout, friendly knowledgable bartendar and a good crowd in this Park Slope bar for a Saturday afternoon.

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?
