Suggestions for a birthday bar crawl in Williamsburg

I'm taking my wife out this Thursday night for a bar crawl in Williamsburg to celebrate her 43rd birthday. I was looking for some suggestions for places with good microbrews and decent wine that also serve tasty food and were within a comforatble walk of one another. Any ideas? Thanks.

  1. Spuyten Duyvil on Metropolitan has an extensive beer selection and decent wine, plus cheese/meat plates. It also has a very large and pleasant patio area, which is key since the bar itself is pretty cramped. If you like oysters, stop by Maison Premiere between 4-7pm – all oysters are a dollar, and the quality is high. They also have excellent cocktails and a thoughtful if not huge selection of beer on tap. For more substantial food, there's DOC Wine Bar on N.7th and Wythe.
