This is up there with Proletariat as one of my favorites in NYC. Always an excellent selection of beers that puts you in a tough spot as to what beer to choose. Eventually you say fuck your wallet and just start ordering them all.

Nice glassware is used here and that's always a huge plus. The servers are friendly (one also works at Proletariat or used to) and there's a mellow, low-key vibe to the spot most times.

This place is great to visit on its own or you can make it part of a crawl with Other Half, Mission Dolores, Threes, St. Gambrinus and others.

This bar, from what I can see, is a hidden gem in Brooklyn. Great selection and really reasonable prices too. Drank with the wife for a few hours, had 7-8 pours between us and only spent 50$. If you've never been here defintely seek this place out. It may not have the notoriety of Torst but you can sit and stand without feeling like a sardine so on a random night I'll take Owl Farm unless I have a reason not to.

I consider this among the best beer bars in I've ever been to, and probably the best in Brooklyn. Large (28 taps) selection, and contstant rotation. They always have interesting beers on tap (no BMC if you care). Really beautifully curated selection. They age their own kegs. No cask ale, no outdoor area, but I would come here here every night if I could afford it. Too busy for me on Friday and Saturday nights, though. Best to visit on off hours. Please don't come here, I like it the way it is.
