Former Brooklyn firefighter Tommy Casatelli—behind Bay Ridge's Kettle Black and Ho' Brah Tacos—opens a third neighborhood watering hole, a wood-laden beer bar fittingly parked next to Engine 242. Housed inside an old locksmith shop where Casatelli worked as a kid, the copper-backed bar features 12 all-American craft beers—including local brews from Sixpoint, Kelso and Ommegang—and four wines on the black-iron taps. From the open kitchen come snacks including a dozen sausage varieties (such as a chicken-jalapeño-mango from Brooklyn Cured and a broccoli-rabe-and-provolone from Lioni’s), alongside hot dogs, sweet-potato Tater-Tots and Frito pie. Out back is a 32-seat garden equipped with picnic tables, an apt setting for kicking back with one of the bar’s 20 canned brews.
