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.

Some of the best high end hot dogs in the city. Great backyard to boot. Nice casual atmosphere.

Super cool place, great bartenders and friendly staff who know a lot about what they're serving. They just added liquor to their awesome beer and wine menu as well. THIS is the place in Brooklyn.
