We say:

Spuyten Duyvil is a beer connoisseur’s heaven. They have over a hundred types of beers and 6 taps. (You can find out what’s currently on tap here). Wine and cheese are also available for those in the mood for an alternative to beer. There is a nice-sized garden too. Wine lovers will be pleased as well since Spuyten has a vast wine selection of hand-picked wines.

NY Mag says:

No bar in the city pays more loving and thorough homage to beer–specifically Belgian beer, arguably the world’s best–than Spuyten Duyvil. In a neighborhood where $2 PBR rules the day, it’s built an almost cultlike following around obscure imported microbrews. Beer geeks from Manhattan, Jersey, Connecticut, and beyond make the trek for a stunning selection of Belgian brews that’s broken down by region–Flemish, Wallonian, and Lambic. After that, there are twelve more countries to sample, and a grand total of about 100 often-rare bottles, plus a rotating hand-pulled cask ale. The simple mahogany bar offers the best view of the voluminous chalkboard beer listings and a chance to chat up passionate owners Joe Carroll and Kim Barbour. Snacks–plates of cheese, meat, and Brooklyn-made pickles–stand up well to that $19 bottle of rare Wallonian Blaugies.
