Well, of all the awesome beer bars I visited in Brooklyn (thanks to StonyB for the tips), this one was probably the least awesome, but that's not to say it isn't pretty damn awesome. The selection is simply out-of-this-world. Their specialty seems to be extremely arcane Belgian beers, especially gueuzes and lambics, and if that's your thing, then this is your place. However, the atmosphere is kind of blah, too well-lit to be a dive, but too narrow and cramped to really feel comfortable. The bartenders aren't the friendliest guys, but they do know how to pour. Some of the prices seemed exceedingly high, especially if you go for something really obscure, but their on-tap domestics were reasonable at $5-7 a pint. They also offer one cask ale as a bonus (when I went it was Ridgeway IPA). Overall, it's absolutely worth checking out, but in my opinion there are better places to have a beer in the area.

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.
