I am more into the beer aspect than the video game aspect, but I do love the beer here! I suppose, it's not that I don't like old video games, but I want to concentrate on the excellent beer I am having more than playing video games, but that's just me. On to the beer...

Happy hour is a great deal, 1 dollar off, making my beers 5 bucks plus tip. They had Founder's Imperial Stout ( major nerd points) and Firestone Walker's Double Jack DIPA, amazing, on my last trip. The bartender was knowledgeable and friendly with the samples. He enjoyed a little beer nerd chat which I always enjoy at as beer spot. I hate being treated like a jerk if I want to nerd out and certainly that was not the case here.

The beer selection is large , comprehensive, and on my last trip, impressive. My girlfriend had an Allagash Dubbel which was awesome. I will certainly come back for the beer, along with Mugs, the best beer in the Williamsburg area and maybe the best. I appreciate this place.

Came here once just for the video games. Just as well, because in my hour and a half I don't think I spoke to anyone who worked here.

The video games are worth a separate review, but they're the real draw.

Glancing up occasionally at the beer list it seemed great, lots of weird, offbeat choices. Too bad I never got the inclination to approach what seemed like chilly staff.

I'd go back here if I was with a group.

The selection is fantastic here. I never tried the cocktails or food (do they really serve food? Maybe, but I never noticed.) But the beers are great, for a decent price. And of course the retro games and atmosphere are fun. Just beware of how crowded it gets on weekends.
