We Say:

One of our favorite Bedford-stop bars. Brooklyn Ale House is completely lacking in pretense and attracts a surprisingly hipster-free and tourist-free crowd. The beer selection is great and the vibe reminds us of the neighborhood circa 1995. Dog lovers especially like Brooklyn Ale House since the bar is dog-friendly.

NY Mag says:

Yes, the name is generic, almost to the point of complete mental irretrievability. And, being a jukebox-with-billiards spot in Williamsburg, it faces fierce local competition: The Sweetwater siphons the punks, the Abbey the mods; Mug’s has greater beer variety, plus food and televised sports. So what nevertheless makes B.A.H. the Northside’s choice watering hole? One word: acoustics. You can talk here. You can speak low and still make yourself heard over the Pixies or the Stones. And since it happens to be a favorite of both dog owners and motorcycle owners, it’s the best place in town to spot a dog on a motorcycle. And that’s pretty cool, right?

Time Out says:

Pony up the price of a drink, pull up a stool and count yourself a member of the club at this unaffected Williamsburg watering hole. Prices are downright reasonable from 3 to 7pm daily, when all 16 drafts—including Old Speckled Hen and Brooklyn Brewery ales—go for $3 a pint. Regarding mixed drinks, bartenders are known for a generous pour that makes this place a favorite among musicians, artists, writers and off-duty bar staff that call the place their local.
