Another new spot in BKLYN, NY, what a borough for beer btw! Can you say international beer destination?

This smaller, clean and neat spot is on Atlantic ave, just a short walk from Brooklyn Heights and Park slope and even closer to the Barclay's center.

Small bar up front for pints and growler fills, tables opposite bar and towards the rear. Bottles o'plenty on shelves in the rear. Bartender spoke of some shared outdoor space out back that will be available in the warmer months.

Expect qualtiy craft tap options, 16 flowing, towards the interesting side of the spectrum, up to date details are posted on beermenus dot com. Food is limited to some bar snacks and an array of semi-foodie paninni type sandewedges.

Run by a crew of friendly grown up beer geeks, Added bonus....got a fresh taste from a can of Heady Topper from one of the owner, so clearly raised marks for service!

Pleasant and worthy spot

If you're going to shop for bottles and cans, you may be disappointed. I rarely find anything of note here as it seems all the goodies get bought up almost immediately.

But despair not. Growler fills are the move here and you won't be disappointed with the tap selection. It's off the hook. Always some major gems on here. And if you're unsure, just drink a little something before getting that fill.

I have spent hours here drinking and enjoying the good company. Excellent vibe to go with the excellent beer selection. A standout spot in a city full of them.

Great little spot on the Boerum Hill/Park Slope border.

The staff was friendly, chatting me up about the different beers and answering my questions. When my fiancé ordered a beer that kicked a keg and didn't fill the glass, they gave it to her free of charge.

The draft list is well thought out. About 16 beers on tap, all quality. The bartender told me that he got a shipment of 2013 Bourbon County Stout so bonus points for being able to serve me that.

The atmosphere was classy. It had a "wine bar for beer geeks" feel to me. Overall, great place.

Nice little place that makes up for quantity of selections with quality. They have a nice taplist, small bar, and a garden area to sit outside out back. Have a small, but quality selection of retail beer offerings including many from local breweries.

This is a great bar/shop combo. The tap selection is always fantastic and they're happy to provide a range of pour sizes, which is always appreciated when it comes to trying new beers or keeping to a smaller pour for the high ABV options. All the staff is great and I've always felt welcomed every time I come here. The crowd and atmosphere are all great -- it's very easy to spend any evening of the week here talking with friends and drinking great beer.
