Best place for a pint of cider in Cobble Hill area?

I have a friend visiting next weekend who is enamored with hard cider - and not being much of a cider drinker myself, I am not sure what places (if many) carry cider on tap.

Recommendations, please! Thank you.

  1. On the border of Brooklyn heights/Cobble Hill (on Atlantic) is Roebling Inn. Good selection of local, craft beers and I believe they have a hard cider on draught. Perhaps Waterfront Ale House does, as well. They have the added bonus of pretty decent pub food.

    1. 61 Local had it when I was there on Friday. Ceol probably has it as well.

      191 Smith St, Brooklyn, NY 11201

      61 Local
      61 Bergen St, Brooklyn, NY 11201

      1. In addition to the other suggestions, I know the Brooklyn Inn almost always has at least one cider on tap.

        You might check out Colonie, as they typically have a number of interesting draft beers. They may have cider too. Also, Bar Great Harry I think usually has one or two on tap as well.

        I'm not a cider drinker either, so I don't tend to notice them.

        Your best bet, as straciatella noted, is probably 61 Local. They serve ONLY local products (~200 mile radius or so), so whatever cider they have will probably be something your friend has never seen before. Failing that, Ceol will have Magner's or some other widely distributed product.

        Bar Great Harry
        280 Smith St, Brooklyn, NY 11231

        Brooklyn Inn
        148 Hoyt St, Brooklyn, NY 11217

        127 Atlantic Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11201

        61 Local
        61 Bergen St, Brooklyn, NY 11201

        1. Try Henry Public!

              I'd probably go to Waterfront Ale House.
