My partner and I stopped by to round of our tour of Williamsburg pubs before getting the L train back to Manhattan. It really is a cracking little bar. Friendly staff, quIck service, good drinks at a great price and to top it off...free pizza with every beer before 8! What's not to love. Highly recommend.

What is not to like about this place? You've got friendly service, reasonable prices, a decent selection of drinks and tasty, inexpensive pizzas. I think they put on social events too. What's not to like?

We went here prior to a gig at the Brooklyn Bowl. The selection of beers was good and because it was happy hour we saved a few dollars too! There is also free pizza available in happy hour! The bar man was very friendly and recommended some different beers for us to try.
