The 21, temperature-controlled taps at this Greenpoint bar range from light to dark, each handle reflecting the color of the beer it pours. There is beer and only beer here, and it’s served in wine glasses. The inside resembles a 70’s-style model home. Yet, while the interior design harkens to the past, the brew selection is a foamy vision of the future. Regulated by a “flux capacitor,” the draught system allows bartenders to adjust the carbon dioxide and nitrogen content of each individual beer. In addition to the 21 drafts, including a number of Evil Twin brews, there is a menu of over 100 bottles, including the likes of The Bruery Sour in the Rye. Only the best, most obscure brews are penned on the mirror above the marble countertops, which may as well include the message: “Serious Beer Drinkers Only.”See Also:
