It just looks like your standard neighborhood watering hole until you take a look at the beer selection. There are 16 brews on tap, mostly excellent craft beers like Captain Lawrence Xtra Gold and Brooklyn Pennant Ale, as well as one cask ale. During the week, all draft beers are only $4 or $5 until 7pm; on Mets and Yankees game days you can get a pitcher of Yuengling and a dozen wings for $15. The food is basic pub grub like nachos, cheeseburgers, chicken sandwiches and quesadillas. Get off to a boozy start during brunch service with all-you-can-drink brunch cocktails (mimosas, Bloody Marys, screwdrivers and more) for an hour. A chalkboard lists the beers on tap for the day while HDTVs play whatever games are on with a preference for New York baseball and the New Orleans Saints. Every so often musicians will pop in to play an acoustic set.—Keith Wagstaff
