While we continue our challenge to visit all the bars that have the Good Beer Seal by the end of this month, we’re going to post some details about one of two of them each day. First up: Spuyten Duyvil in Williamsburg.
Walking into Spuyten Duyvil, you immediately notice the decor: vintage, mismatched, comfortable. We thought the tap handles were particularly cool: all carved, dark wood with no beer names on them. The bottle and tap list is extensive, spanning many different countries, with a good amount of rare and obscure beers. There’s a variety of artisanal food options, meat, cheese, olives, and Rick’s Picks pickles.
There was a great atmosphere in the bar. As we sat we noticed a lot of locals coming in and chatting with the bartender, who was very friendly and knowledgeable.
Spuyten Duyvil is located at 359 Metropolitan Ave. in Williamsburg and is open at 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, 1 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Closest subways are the L train to Lorimer and the G train to Metropolitan.
