“Super cozy bar serving all sorts of beer - tell them a friend of Ben sent you! What it is: Overwhelmingly more beer bar than beer store, the upscale spot is both in the middle of and far enough away from the hustle of Williamsburg’s trendier spots and bustle of Greenpoint’s city-like avenues. The venue focuses on (and succeeds at) bringing unique ales, lagers, lambics and everything in between from around the world into one friendly but smart neighborhood spot. Why we love it: Where to begin? The beer selection is wider than you’d imagine, with a tap list of 16 drafts ranging from casual to connoisseur favorites with a few talked-about seasonals sprinkled in, a draft line of kombucha (which is, in fact alcoholic at a whopping 1.3 percent) and a bottle list so deep you won’t know where to begin (an 82 bottle mix of domestics and imports ranging from 12 oz to large format bottles). Who to bring: Brunch goers who would be pleased with an unlimited beer brunch for $18 (every Sunday until 4); anyone who loves beer; anyone who likes cocktails; anyone willing to try the bartender’s inventive beer cocktails or one-of-a-kind Bloody Mary’s. What to order: If you’re hungry, the soft pretzels are melt-in-your-mouth and can be paired with a variety of choice dipping sauces (the chipotle mayo is a winner). The pulled pork sandwich is big, moist and hard not to devour like a monster and the grilled cheese is pretty good, too. But the main goal should be to try a few of the 16 drafts and 82 bottles ranging from local and state-side favorites to selects you’ve never heard of from around the world. There is a beer and shot deal, but the bar keeps it quiet to keep from disturbing the loyal locals there to try some good beer. Fun fact: One Stop has a card club, called the Beer Society, that rewards you for your loyal patronage and beer guzzling tendencies. If you’re really into the beer scene, get a card (free) and try to get through the select list of 40 bottles – you’ll get your name on a plaque on the wall, and if you’re really ambitious, you can continue on to phase two, which challenges you with a list of 20 large-format bottles. For that, the managing partner will take your prize down of the wall to the plaque making station in the basement and add gold bottle cap with a “II” insignia that he hand paints himself.”

“Extremely old-school and wonderful. The most adorable shopkeepers ever (Joe & wife, who have run the shop since the 70s and are from Capri). Also the best iced coffee ever (comes w/ coffee ice cubes)!”
