Mug's is straight up a neighborhood beer bar, it has that old school feel to it yet keeps up with the times and serves some really good beer. Prices are decent, staff is efficient. With nearly 24 taps on during my visit I noticed the selection had dropped a bit ... still good but not a great as the first. Many from Brooklyn Brewery, the a Southampton, Blue Point, Climax ... etc. What can I say ... Mug's is one of the those beer institutions of Brooklyn and you'd be stupid not to drop on by if in the NYC area.

I'll start by saying that the selection of beer at Mug's is great, carrying more than enough draft and bottle beers to seduce even the pickiest of beer geeks. From locals, to domestic and foreign imports, to specials, to vintage beers. And, to boot, the beers are insanely cheap! Most of the bigger, special beers were only $3.75 for a 20oz pint! Others even dipped under $3 ... that's crazy ass insane, of course, in a good way. Every beer that I had was poured well and fresh.

Now pair this with a dark wood traditional pub look, full of nooks and crannies (front bar room, with a rear dining area), a pretty decent jukebox, a solid menu of reasonably priced pub grub, friendly staff and a bartender with beer knowledge? C'mon ... this place has got to be one of the best deals in the NYC/Brooklyn area!

Mug's. I loved Mug's Ale House. What's not to love? If I lived in the area this would no doubt be my local drinking hole.

One of my favorite places in the city. Great quality and selection both on tap and bottle. Food is basic pub fare(burgers, wing sect.) but is actually quite decent. Beer menu displayed digitally at bar. Cool old school bar feel. There are tvs for sports and a pinball machine. The crowd is cool and low key.( no frat boys) Spacious bar with two rooms, a long bar, plenty of tables and a patio in the back. The staff is friendly. Great place.

Service is really great. Ber selection was impressive. Burgers were very good. I would go back without hesitation. Maine Lunch, Bell's Hopslam on tap, among many other notables.

Some of the taps are too warm. Had to go with a bottle to share last time.
What are we, in England?
