This bi-level behemoth beer hall has a 3,500-square-foot ground floor and a roof deck almost as large. Brooklyn boosters may be disappointed to find that the 15 taps are dedicated to imports (mostly German and Belgian drafts). Other amenities that might make up for it: a 13-foot-wide screen dedicated to soccer, Manhattan (and McCarren Park) views and a beer-friendly food menu.

I organized a Williamsburg bar crawl with my friends for my 21st birthday and this was my first spot of the night. I'm so glad I chose to visit Berry Park because I will definitely be coming back. The space is HUGE. There's a downstairs which is pretty loud but fun and then the upstairs which is a rooftop. It was November so the rooftop was enclosed but had a nice outdoor section as well. The view was amazing and the overall vibe at this bar was just great. Everyone was just having so much fun. It wasn't like your typical NYC rooftop where everyone is just taking pictures and modeling for Instagram. Maybe it's just a Brooklyn thing and I sure as hell love it.
I had a huckleberry lemonade (10$) which was served in a cute mason jar and was very strong and tasty. I also had a few birthday shots of...I don't remember what lol. The bartender was very friendly and as well as all the staff. I will definitely be back!
As far as rooftop bars go, this is one of the best I've seen. Midtown Manhattan views, huge seating area - covered and uncovered, and a large clean well-designed seating area. Downstairs is a huge area as well withlots of seating and a fireplace! Good tap selections and tasting menu. My friend and i had the frickles with chipotle aioli and the spinach artichoke dip with pita. I thought the frickles were tasty - sour and creamy paired with the aioli. The dip was good as well, but more spinach than I expected. I would rather have it with more cheese and chips.
One of the few rooftop bars I actually visit in the North Williamsburg area. It can definitely get busy, but the roof is pretty large, with big picnic tables, and you can even see a sliver of the Manhattan skyline across the river. They've got Kevin's Slushies on tap (with booze, obviously), great German beers on tap and plenty of yummy bar food like giant pretzels and schnitzel sandwiches and bratwurst. There's a huge lower bar area as well with plenty of TVs for watching sports, if you're into that sort of thing. Definitely try the Huckleberry Lemonade—it's a refreshing vodka lemonade drink on a hot, sweaty Brooklyn day.
This popular watering hole in the heart of Williamsburg is easily accessible, yet feels like a respite from the busy bars nearby. When you walk in, you're greeted by a high-ceilinged room filled with large wooden tables and a long bar in the back—a great spot to gather a group of friends. In warm weather though, the rooftop is the place to be, where you can enjoy a breeze and views of the Manhattan skyline. Order one of many Biergarten-inspired bites and wash it down with the German brews on tap, or signature cocktails like the tart Huckleberry Lemonade, served in a mason jar.
Very chill place. The rooftop is a nice and spacious area. They have a bar up there as well and also serve frozen drinks. The only downside of the rooftop is that almost everyone up there is smoking, and you can't seem to get away from the smell. They should designate a specific area of the rooftop for smokers, or just ban it altogether.
The food there was good. There is a menu item for a pretzel, but it was very SMALL. The salads were good though. The frozen piña collada drink is delicious, and so is the huckleberry lemonade (vodka/lemonade).
I would definitely go back here again!
