Best Place to Drown Your Sorrows


Shuffle down a ramshackle Greenpoint road to this cavernous tavern with an electric blue exterior and cozy, brick-and-dark-wood interior. The rustic watering hole hosts on-site brewing from Greenpoint Beer & Ale Co. Alongside a list of imports, the local brewers at Dirck the Norseman deliver a variety of beer styles, from citrusy wheat to hoppy pilsner, which help ease whatever pain you’re feeling. And if forgetting one’s troubles is the goal, why not immerse yourself in a suds-friendly feast? Sup on gastropubby small plates like cauliflower schnitzel and hunks of smoked brisket with horseradish mayo. With any luck, you’ll stave off that hangover and come away with some righteous beer knowledge.
