I was on a pub crawl with a group of friends and the fabled Spuyten Duyvil was the fourth stop on the list that started at The Sixpoint Brewery and ended at Barcade.
I found the place to be packed with a younger college crowd looking to be seen, but the little bar looked like it had been a Jamaican lunch counter or a diner in a previous life and the colors were the same. We were lucky to have found a table in the smoking section of the backyard after ordering from the superb menu of unusual things.
I was surprised to find a better sake menu than in most sushi bars and good amount of cider from Normandy, not to mention a dream-like array of ales.
My preference was for the Defiant cask selection which pared well with the expensive three cheese board we ordered.
Like the other places I visited, I would hope to return on a week day evening to see what the place was like without the crowds.

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.
