Boerum Hill
In this earnest Cobble Hill beer hall, owners Dave Liatti (a former engineer for Sixpoint Craft Ales) and Chris Munsey (Murray’s Cheese) have created a real nerve center for the Brooklyn brew scene. Their 30-plus taps are devoted to local craft beers (Ommegang, Barrier Brewing), small-batch wines (Red Hook Winery) and kombucha, and they curate a steady flow of events connecting patrons with the purveyors. Stop by for discussions, cooking classes and film screenings, or just settle into a communal table with your crew. It's easy to watch the hours pass as you drink your way around the region and nosh shareable plates, made with Kings County ingredients like Brooklyn Brine maple-bourbon pickles and Brooklyn Cured country pâté.
