A stone's throw from its 19th-century namesake, Castle Clinton—America's first beer garden—the folks behind Watermark Bar honor the storied nabe with a 4,000-square-foot Battery Park beer hall of their own. At the marble bar, 20 taps rotate selections of hard-to-find brews: Huyghe Delirium Tremens, Van Honsebrouck Kasteel Rouge and De Halve Maan Straffe Hendrik Bruges Triple, available in pints, half pints or third pints. A flux capacitorbehind the bar controls the carbonation and temperature of each tap, ensuring that pints are served at an optimal 34 degrees. Pub grub includes Bavarian fare like spaetzle, soft pretzels and house-made brats, such as an all-beef link with pickled tomato relish, and lamb sausage infused with cumin and ginger.

There is a decent beer list, and it is a good place to go if you want to meet up with a group of friends for something a little more laid back. But be prepared to have to spot out a table, because it can get pretty crazy.
It is good to meet up with friends and have a couple of beers. Food is average, the ambiance is what makes it worth coming to (if you are in the area). Just an FYI the place is packed after work, finding a table might be easy but be prepared to share with another party.
For a while it had a pretty good rotation of beers, but it's not as exciting now. It does, however, have one of those cool tap systems where you can customize the tap based on the type of beer for the best pour. This place is always packed with financial people. Also, it's held some pretty cool beer events with breweries in the past.
