This is absolutely one of the best bars that I have ever been to.

I might describe this place as being FUBABUBA (for us BA's, by us BA's). The atmosphere is great for sitting around, shooting the breeze with your old friends or the new ones you meet there, eating some stinky cheese, and imbibing any of their fine beers.

Every other review makes a big deal about how absolutely fantastic the selection is here, and I found out why as soon as I walked in. I must have stared at the chalkboard beer list with my jaw on the floor for a good 5 minutes before I could figure out what I wanted to try. After picking up my jaw and putting my tongue back into my mouth, I settled in with a Vuuve wit and was on my way to putting in a good session at the bar.

One thing that I found interesting is that the glass bottle sets and metal canister sets displayed behind the bar are for sale.

I think I would rather have a dream that I went to this place than actually go to a lesser bar. If you find yourself in New York, it is most imperative for you to clear an evening and visit Spuyten Duyvil.

How on Earth do I not have a review of Spuyten Duyvil down?

Love this place. Have been here so many times and tried so many different beers that I probably would have never been able to. 1984 Boon Mariage Parfait, Cantillon Saint Lamvinus on a hand pump, and on and on and on. The decor is awesome, the selection is thorough (even with the minimal taps) and it's worth a visit if you've never been.

In the hipster-elitist tradition, there's no sign for this place and every beer is super expensive, much like the local's rent. However, if you can afford it, there's plenty of hard-to-find brews. Though hard-to-find COULD be desirable, the quality of these rare brews leaves something to be desired. Many of the beers have sub-90 reviews on Beer Advocate. I don't take my chances on beers over $10. I like the garden in the back. It's a relaxing place to drink a decent craft beer. Doesn't compare to say, Bohemian Beer Garden in Astoria, but it's still a nice change of scenery compared with most bars.
