If you are a European Football (soccer) fan and a beer lover, this is the place for you. They show all the EPL games, La Liga, Serie A, Bundesligs etc. moving on to the beer...most sports bar serve macro swill...not this one! Their selection, although not earth shattering, is quite decent and features local craft brews, german beers and some of the better know micro brews from around the U.S. Great festive atmosphere to watch soccer, cool British bartender(I think he might have been the owner) and friendly service, vibe and patrons. I will definetely go back.

Right on the corner of Havemeyer and S 1st Ave. Stop by this place after seeing on their outside chalkboard, "24 craft beers on tap." Beautiful interior: lots of wooden and brass embellishments, like something from the late 19th century. Two flat screen TVs right above the entrance, showing the MLS AS vs. MUFC game. Long bar with all the taps of great variety: Sixpoint, Founders, Captain Lawrence and many European ones too. Only one bartender available, who I'm guessing was the owner too, but was very attentive. It helped that the bar was less than crowded around 9pm though, only around 10 people. Bought a Sixpoint Righteous Rye, which was delicious. 16 oz. for only $5. Beautiful. Actually most of the beers here were around $4-6 for a nicely sized amount.

Definitely a quiet and not so well-known place in Brooklyn. Very impressive place for craft beer drinking and leisure. If you're a European football fan too, this place will show the matches. Wasn't expecting much, but Banter was really a great place worth re-visiting, especially for their prices and selection.
