The adult punk’s an­swer to find­ing first-rate beers from lo­cal, re­gional, and in­ter­na­tional pro­duc­ers, and a pleas­antly gritty at­mos­phere to drink them in

What it is:

What started as a bot­tle shop and tast­ing room in 2010 has evolved into a top-tier, un­os­ten­ta­tious hang­out for Green­point’s beer drinkers. The beer bar is also sis­ter to hy­per-lo­cal brew­ery, Green­point Beer & Ale Co., and an im­porter of Ger­many’s Jever and Gaf­fel Kolsch, both of which are al­ways on tap. Be­hind the taps, a ver­sa­tile bot­tle/can se­lec­tion at­tracts lo­cal passersby and dis­cern­ing beer nerds alike.

Why it’s great:

Brouwerij Lane’s laid-back, no-bs vibe is ri­valed only by its beer se­lec­tion. The har­mo­niously cu­rated nine­teen drafts and 150+ bot­tles and cans bring in a lov­able cast of life­long lo­cals, film-in­dus­try vets, and ec­cen­tric artists and mu­si­cians along with Brook­lyn’s ju­di­cious beer en­thu­si­asts and in­dus­try mem­bers. A con­tin­u­ous ro­ta­tion of freshly kegged (and often canned) fa­vorites from walk­a­ble brew­eries, lo­cal no­mads, and statewide se­lec­tions pour along­side re­gional heart throbs such as Hill Farm­stead and Tired Hands as well as global op­tions. In the cooler, ex­pect es­o­teric in­ter­na­tional treats and a con­stantly up­dated stock of lo­cal/re­gional can and bot­tle releases. An ami­able and as­tute staff is keen on lead­ing you to that beer you didn’t know you’d love. —Cat Wolin­ski
