Fifth Ave Park slope, what a great neighborhood for a pub crawl!

Mid sized, bar to the left as you enter, with windows that swing open onto the Park Slope street scene, nice, especially when the weather is good. 15 or so quality taps, expect the usual good stuff, nothing amazing or rare when I've visited. Friendly, comfortable and relaxed athmosphere with a few chairs along the wall and windows in the front and more relaxed and spread out spaces to sit in the rear.

Quality place for a beer or two. Works before or after getting a bite to eat or meal. There are also a multitude of other fun spots in the immediate vicinity.

When I went, it was back in March, before they were on BA, so this a few months old.

Great location on 5th Ave. Lots other good bars and restaurants in the area. Went here on a lark. My girlfriend went there previously, and didn't even mention the good beer. She just liked the atmosphere.

Standard NY bar set-up. Long bar on the left, seating on the right and in the back. Outdoor deck area in the back as well. Low lighting, good indie music, free popcorn, candles on the tables.

Great selection of taps. Six-point, Brooklyn, and other local brews are a given, what wasn't was Baby Tree from the Pretty Things Ale Project in Cambridge, MA. A local favorite of mine here in Boston, I was very psyched to see it down there.

Service at the bar was prompt and friendly. If you are in Park Slope, and you like good beer. Go here.

In Park Slope so expect to spend a little money. There were specials for World Cup, a dollar off everything until 8P. Good selection of beer, taps, bottles, cans. Chimay, Porkslap. I had an Atwater Maibock on tap was quite the yummy and something else, don't remember. The bartender was pretty knowledgeable(I think I was in there after midnight on a Thursday)and attentive, so I didn't wait long for a drink. The bathrooms are pretty clean, single occupant with chalkboard walls and a glass of chalk to write your thoughts or whatever else you may want on the wall. Cool place, I'd make it a destination.
