NY Mag says:

There’s not an ounce of pretension at this laid-back South Williamsburg bar. What you will find is a long wooden bar with art deco-y light fixtures and ample seating, a pool table, and a sports-loving crowd watching a game of some sort on one of the three flat-screen TVs. (If there were any question of team loyalty, there are a few seats from the old Yankees Stadium milling about.) Drink specials are daily, and in addition to a Jägermeister machine, there’s a hefty (if not exactly gourmet) draft selection that includes Sixpoint Righteous Ale and Miller, along with concoctions like Bloody Marys and Dark and Stormies. If you work up a sweat after a few rounds of Buck Hunter, there’s also a rock-floored patio in the back
