Vets of the Knitting Factory bring a massive 14,000-square-foot beer garden to the ’Burg. The joint—housed in a former brewery with 30-foot ceilings and brick walls inset with kegs—doubles as a live music venue featuring big-name acts like hip-hop artist Cam'ron, Latin psych-rock band Os Mutantes and British rocker Peter Murphy. Sixty taps pour brews (Sixpoint, Captain Lawrence, Greenport Harbor) at a long wood bar, but Williamsburg's new moneyed set can blow it out with the 30-bottle champagne list.

I went here, finally, on a rainy weekend to sit and have a good beer, and I was not disappointed. You cannot go wrong with this beer list—even if you close your eyes and point randomly on the menu, your choice is sure to be good. I had two that were delicious: the Lavandula Juniperus gose from Leipzig, very light and floral and not at all like other goses I've had, and the Smoking Wood Mole stout from the Bruery. So delicious, and I've never seen beer from the Leipzig brewery anywhere else. Also, the bartender was super into beer and very chatty, and after we bonded over a love of stouts, he gave me a sample of one with chili pepper in it. The space is huge and beautiful, and I'm really excited to go in the summertime.

If you're a beer fan, definitely come here. The draught beer selection is insane, as is the rest of the selection on offer. You could come back here regularly and still try and new beer every time. Nice feel to the interiors too - it's spacious, with exposed concrete, pool tables and board games. Staff were incredibly helpful and knew their stuff too.
