We planned to visit the Brooklyn Brewery, hoping there would be at least a bar, where we could sample their different types of beer. To our disappointment, we found a closed door, with a sign saying that public visits were permitted only after 5:00 PM, and, even so, with previous reservation. We didn't want to miss the trip, and so... More

I located this bar online then grabbed a spot for the ND vs Syracuse game and had great service by Sarah--really Irish! I found out that the bartender was a former ND player too! And the food & beer were great and ND won too.

We were headed to Brooklyn Brewery, which had a line around the corner. We saw Kent Ale House on the corner, and decided to give it a try. Fantastic array of beers, funky bar, outside seating and great service. The rosemary shoestring fries are to die for. Nice view of the Manhattan skyline topped the evening off.

This pub goes against the - now cliched - hipster vibes around Williamsburg, by providing a proper 'spit and sawdust' pub. Loads of beers, sports on the screens, and views of Manhattan.

We stopped in after a big brunch and walk around Williamsburg. The staff couldn't have been nicer with putting on the soccer game, recommendations on the flight of beer, and a few of the best Bloody Marys we've ever had. Our son got a pint of chocolate milk and a great basket of sweet potato fries, so everyone was very... More

This was a fantastic pub for easy food and 24 different beers. It shows all sports including the rugby World Cup which was fantastic! The service was great even when they were really busy in the pub.

The Kent Ale House is a must visit. We were here Saturday afternoon on a beautiful sunny day which probably helps. Get an outside table looking back at Manhattan and you can't go wrong. There is a huge beer choice and the house fries are just that - home made on site. Awesome!! I highly recommend this place.

After visiting Brooklyn Flea we decided to stop at the Kent Ale House for an early lunch. As it turned out it was the hi-light of our day. Arsenal vs. Chelsea was on the tele (my husband was happy).
