Best places in South Brooklyn (i.e. not Williamsburg) for Belgian beer selection?

Which bars (and/or restaurants) in Brooklyn south of Williamsburg/Greenpoint/Bushwick are the best for their variety and quality of Belgian beers??

I know that there are great places in Williamsburg (and Manhattan for that matter) but I'm wondering specifically about the rest of Brooklyn (esp. Carroll Gardens, Ft Greene, Boerum Hill, DUMBO, Park Slope, Prospect Heights, etc - but other neighborhoods too!). Surely there are some good places!

  1. Downtown Bar and Grill on Court St. in Cobble Hill and Draft Barn in Gowanus have large selections. You might also check out for some other ideas.

    1. Biercraft and Beer Table, both in (opposite ends of) Park Slope have good selections.

      Beer Table
      427 7th Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11215

      1. The suggestions above are all good, and I would also check out 4th Avenue Pub, Pacific Standard, Great Bar Harry, and Mission Dolores. None of these places specialize in Belgian beer but they will have a few (and many more Belgian style beers from other places).

        Pacific Standard
        82 4th Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11217

        Mission Dolores
        249 4th Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11215

        1. Definitely go to ReBar in DUMBO. The have one of the best selections of draft and bottled Belgian beer in the city, served in the proper glassware. Great space, staff, and customers every time I have been there, as well as delicious tapas. Downtown Bar & Grill on Court St. never seems to get much press, but the stock just about every beer you can imagine in bottles, and have a pretty good draft selection as well.
