We went back a few times over our stay in Brooklyn. Each time, a new server or bartender, with a smile and friendly demeanor. One gentleman apologized with a free round of shots because we politely waited while he served the drunk masses. The windows...More

We stopped in early right after they opened. They have a massive collection of fun craft beers. We ordered lunch which was really good. The service was attentive. If it had not been so early we would have stayed for more beers. Seems like it...More

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,...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.

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...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...More
