It isn't pretentious. Just good beer, good food and (seasonally) good trivia!

Best bar in Greenpoint. Great staff, great food and amazing beer that is brewed on site!!!


Williamsburg and Greenpoint are full of awesome breweries and distilleries, but I never heard of Keg & Lantern until I went to NYC Craft Beer Week's opening cruise. And I was impressed. 

I'm not a huge beer drinker, but they served a beer called HOT Gold that I made a trip to Greenpoint for two weeks later.

HOT Gold is an ale spiced with Jalapeno, Habanero Peppers and Cilantro. If you like spicy like me, you will absolutely love this. I split a pitcher with some really good buffalo wings while watching college basketball and hockey, and I couldn't have been any happier.

It's a block away from Five Leaves and this place has outdoor seating and doubles as a sports bar, which is rare in this neighborhood. I'll be back so long as that beer is on tap.
