Bar of the Week: Rock on at The Gibson

This is the thirteenth in our series on the venues featured in the second Brooklyn Beer Book. This week we turn our attentions to The Gibson, an amusement-filled beer parlor to save you from the Williamsburg main drag craziness.

108 Bedford Ave. at N. 11th St., Williamsburg

What is it: An occasionally low-key respite on the edge of Bedford Avenue with a love of craft beers.

Why we love it: It’s less scene-y than most everything else on that street: just a place to grab a brew and kill some time on the foosball table.

Who to bring: People you want to actually have a conversation with; your location-based social-media-obsessed friend: FourSquare users and Facebook friends get a buy one, get one free deal here.

What to order: 13 drafts change frequently, but this week get a light taste of the season ahead with the Blue Point Spring Fling.

Gibson fun fact: In addition to a foosball table, the bar also has a Wii to play and two large projection screens to show major sporting events. The garden seats 40+.
