Village Voice's Description

This sliver of a bar, owned by the people behind the Grape and Grain next door, stocks so many beers you'll wonder where they keep them all. Six of them are on tap, brews from small craft brewers like Sixpoint from Brooklyn and Goose Island from Chicago. The bottles, both big and small, come from all over the world: Hitachino from Japan, Westmalle from Belgium, Green Flash from San Diego. It's a beer nerd's heaven with a simple set-up that allows for enjoying your beer without distraction. In the middle of the room is a long, communal wooden table; a counter lined with bar stools runs along the exposed brick wall, which is decorated with photo prints and lit by the glare of a TV hanging above. If you're hungry you can order the beer-steamed mussels or the sausages, which are also cooked in beer, plus oysters and charcuterie plates.—Keith Wagstaff

Tips from foursquare

  • Akshay P. on 09/18/10

    The bartender is always super knowledgable about the beer list, so don't be afraid to ask questions. P.S. the chocolate cake w/ mint ice cream = killer.

  • Chelsa on 08/31/09

    If you're in the mood for a snack come here and enjoy the cheese plate with a glass (or bottle) or wine. Great date spot!

  • NY Waterway on 08/07/12

    Quaint tiny hole in the wall with good craft beers, good food and just a cozy spot. The staff are nice and the space is warm and beautiful.
