This Williamsburg dive, from the owner of Great Lakes, Buttermilk and Boat, was conceived as a tribute to the Great White North. But the nominal “Canadian” touches—deer heads tacked to the walls, Canuck songsters on the juke—hardly set it apart. And while the drinks are cheap, the Canadian selections (beers like Molson, Labatt and Moosehead) are outshined by the Bluepoint, Brooklyn Lager and Sixpoint on tap. Why bother with the theme if it’s not going to up your game?
