Brooklyn NY 11211
A friendly and popular dog-worshipping dive bar.
Directions - L train to Bedford Avenue, take the Bedford Avenue exit (at the rear of trains coming from Manhattan), walk south on Bedford Avenue to between South 1st and South 2nd Streets. Alternatively, J, M, or Z train to Marcy Avenue, take the Havemeyer Street (west) exit, head north on Havemeyer Street and turn left on South 2nd Street, and then right on Bedford Avenue.
All but three of the 20 taps are craft beer. The bar is made from reclaimed wood and looks nicely rustic and worn in, the opposite wall is bare brick with a dog mural. Old beer cans vie for space at the back of the bar with rows of lost and expired credit cards pinned up in lines. There is a shuffleboard table to one side. The pleasant back garden is sizeable, and is a great hangout when the weather is good – there are many more seats outside than in. Happy hour is 1200-1900 weekdays. There’s a fair bit of rock, punk, and metal on the jukebox, however the atmosphere is chilled out. No food. Don’t use the suggestion box by the front door, it is bottomless and anything inserted will fall to the floor. (Updated 1/2016).
Decent draft selection, some interesting bottles and a very dog friendly beer garden out back. Well worth a visit and a good part of the Williamsburg crawl.
