The splintered-wood walls and mismatched furniture are holdovers from Pioneer Bar-B-Q, the grizzly eatery that last occupied this Red Hook space. Owner Trevor Budd’s beer-bar pedigree (he is a Ginger Man vet) translates to 30-plus affordable brews, from the $2 Carling Black Label to chocolatey Aventinus from Germany (a $7 steal). For those missing Pioneer, the same smoker still pumps out excellent barbecue—pulled pork piled on soft buns (two for $5) is a delicious reminder of the departed haunt.

This is the bar to end all bars. The beer selection is vast and cheap, they have awesome beer and shot specials, they have a huge backyard (with fire pit), and their frill free burgers are shockingly good. Plus candy to snack on and games to play. Favorite bar in the city, hands down.
