I dropped by Full Circle in Brooklyn on Saturday afternoon. This place successfully combines two great concepts, craft beer and Skee ball. The place was fairly empty upon arrival, but quickly filled up after an hour or so of being there.

In terms of beer selection, I noticed about 5 draft options with selections that included Anchor Brekle’s Brown, Brooklyn Mary’s Maple Porter and Smuttynose IPA. Draft beers were priced from $3-$9. I don’t believe they offer any bottles, but the can selection is impressive. I’ve never seen a beer bar offer so many quality canned beers.

You can expect about 50-60 can options with pretty much every craft (and some non craft) canned beer available that I could think of. I had a couple of draft beers and changed over to some Sixpoint cans.

The main and unique attraction to this place is obviously the Skee ball, which we greatly enjoyed. At $1 for a single game, your collection of singles will deplete rather quality, but its well worth it. This place is fun and worth supporting when in the beer bar mecca neighborhood that is Williamsburg.

As noted in other reviews, the concept is simple. Canned beer (though there are some drafts) and skee ball. Two things we love, first chance to combine them. Go Sunday and Thursday for free skee ball. Beer list is not all craft but at least half of the list. We had Union Jack, Sweet Action, Pinner, maybe a couple of others. Fresh and delicious.

Friendly service, a fun hang out.

Located a scant two blocks or so from Spuyten Duvil you'll find the world's only bar devoted to Skee-Ball. Full Circle is a relatively small little place but gets busy on Skee-Ball league nights.

The small bar has 4 drafts, three of which will be craft and one is the house wheat. The staff/owners are devoted to craft beer and do their best to always have something solid and fresh on draft. Actually after talking with them it was obvious that one of the benefits to having only 4 draft lines is that you're guaranteed something new almost everytime you come in.

As far as bottles go, there are none. Due to a lack of space for empty bottles Full Circle is devoted to craft beer in cans. That's right, no bottles, just cans. However they've got a ton of different cans including Oskar Blues, Butternuts, Uncommon Brewers, Brooklyn, Sly Fox etc..and are doing their best to add more. They also have an annual "Candemonium" canned beer fest.

Awesome little place to grab a pint or two or some cans and kick it and play some Skee-Ball. Definitely worth checking out and on Tues and Thurs they've got free soft pretzels, hot dogs and you can rock the Skee-Ball lanes for free too!
