We already know that the people of Williamsburg really like their growlers, and now they have another source for them: Breukelen Bier Merchants. Grub Street has been known to rail against old-timey, Brooklyn-monikered spots, but we'll let this one slide because we enjoy beer as much as the next blog, and this place has sixteen of them on draft and 500 by the bottle (lineup here). In addition to front and back seating areas, both equipped with heavy wood tables, there's Wi-Fi throughout and victuals sourced from (where else?) local purveyors, including Schaller & Weber Bavarian pretzels, pressed sandwiches on Tomcat Bakery ciabatta, and even a beer-infused cupcake from Cupcakeland, nearby. A small provisions area in the front offers olive oil and other pantry goods.Featured In
