They take their Skee-Ball seriously at this South Williamsburg mecca of cheap beer. A Skee-Ball machine greets you in the tiny front room, while the back boasts a proper game room stocked with … more Skee-Ball! For die hard players, the bar hosts a semi-competitive league—known as Brewskee-Ball—that meets on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. As for the rest of the regulars, they come for the cozy atmosphere and prices that are uber-friendly: $5 will get you a 24-oz Genesee Lager, Genesee Cream Ale is $3, and All Day IPA and Baba Black Lager are $6. Cans are the name of the game—the bar carries over 40 canned beers, from Whale's Tale to Lion Stout. One of the best deals is the $4 Genny Dog (a Genesee Cream Ale and a decent hot dog) or the $6 beer and shot of tequila. Weekday crowds are mostly locals, while the weekends see some spillover from The Lodge next door.
Sundays and Thursdays offer free Skee-Ball and a free hot dog with a drink.
