America's Best Beer Bars
Spuyten Duyvil, Brooklyn, NY
The six rotating taps in this narrow, eclectic bar are stellar, but it’s the collection of obscure domestic and imported bottles that attracts loyal beer geeks—especially Belgian brews like Kerkom Blond, a bitter refresher from a farmhouse brewery in Flanders. The bar offers pickle plates and other snacks, but for substantial food, head across the street to Fette Sau; the same owners transformed a former mechanic’s garage into Brooklyn’s premiere barbecue joint. spuytenduyvilnyc.com
