Mission Dolores

This Park Slope “beer garden”—a concrete courtyard that extends into an airy, tucked-away bar—falls short of destination status. The craft-beer labels—primarily American, with some European cameos (Hofstetten Hochzeitsbier) and solid representation from top East Coast breweries (Other Half)—are almost uniformly excellent. But for a place that courts outdoor crowds, too many taps pour sweet and high-alcohol styles, at the expense of warm-weather sippers like Captain Lawrence Kölsch. Non–beer imbibers can peruse a decent bourbon selection or stick with standard mixed drinks. Mission Dolores is a solid spot for a casual brew, but not one that will compel you to linger.

A strong casual afternoon option with a solid beer list and laid-back atmosphere. Not something you would necessarily travel for, but a strong contender for local favorite if you're at this end of Park Slope. 


Really accessible and casual bar.  Friendly bartending service.  You can bring in your takeout food there as well.
