Brooklyn's Newest Beer and Bourbon Joint


My colleague, Nick Fauchald, and I kicked off summer in similar spirit—with some pulled pork. But unlike Nick, who made his own sandwich (from our June 2008 issue), I had mine at the new Park Slope barbecue joint, Lookout Hill Smokehouse (I should have stuck to the recipe in the issue—Lookout's version was topped with a nice, crunchy slaw, but the pork could have been more flavorful). Still, I'll definitely go back to try their eccentric beer list, which has a bunch of local brews like the hard-to-find Southampton Secret Ale (a German-style ale brewed in the Hamptons), or maybe one of their cool-sounding whiskey flights, like "Touch of a Feather," with Old Crow, Fighting Cock, Eagle Rare and Wild Turkey 101. The playfulness continues: There's also Genesee Cream Ale—a lowbrow beer from upstate New York—and for even more nostalgia, RC Cola. But the John Deere insignias on the sauce holders=hipster overkill.
