Beer spots in Brooklyn?

I keep hearing of new beer spots opening in Brooklyn, (small brews), are they near one another??..where are they??

  1. There's a few in Williamsburg that are fairly close to each other.... DBA on N7, Radegast Beer Garden on N3, Spiten Divel on Metropolitan, Lenora's Way on Bedford and S1. I think there are more, but those are the few that come to mind immediately.

      Also Mugs on Bedford.
      There is Sputyen Divel bar on Metropolitan and then grocery store where they have a great selection to buy bottled on Bedford.
      Just went to DBA in Williiamsburg and they had a good selection, seemed actually larger then the one in East Village.

    2. Also in Williamsburg is Barcade on Union St. It is a bit different from many other beer- focused spots in that it focuses on US-made microbrews including many local selections.

      Draft Barn on 3rd Avenue in Gowanus is a bit out of the way. They do offer a huge variety of beers from around the world though. I thought it was a bit pricey considering its location, but perhaps worth a detour for its impressive selection of brews, both on tap and bottled.

          The Gutter bowling alley also has lots of great local and specialty beers, as does the Black Rabbit on Greenpoint between Manhattan and Franklin and Mugs Ale House on Bedford.

            many Thanks, chowhounders....that a good list to get me started.

          2. There's also Beer Table on 7th Ave and 14th (?) Street in Park Slope. Great spot with a long list of interesting beers, with tasty and unusual small plates, as well.
