What it is: “Greenpoint’s fresh beer store,” a bottle-and-growler shop and tasting bar with the most extensive selection of local, domestic and imported craft brews in North Brooklyn.

Why we love it: The seemingly endless refrigerator selection, the cleverly named brews on the chalkboard, the back area nestled between buildings; the reasons to love Brouwerij Lane are simple but many. This is a shop perfect for trying half pints between errands, or sit awhile to enjoy the many bottles and cans. The soft spoken, expert staff and the oft-art-covered walls add to the intrigue.

Seasonal, local and rare beers are each served one case or keg at a time, keeping the selection diverse and fresh. Beer nights and tap takeovers draw the local beer-loving crowd in regular intervals and newcomers looking to bump elbows with brewers, reps and other beer community characters are welcome.

What to order: A pretzel and a hefeweizen. Or a bag of chips and an Imperial IPA. Or the latest whale that will only be on tap for the next few days, or maybe hours.

Regular tip: Some of the staff here overlaps with that of Dirck the Norseman [link to Bars We Love for Dirck the Norseman] on North 15th St., where Greenpoint Beer and Ale Co. is brewed on premises. For the freshest of the fresh, ask for the latest Greenpoint brewed just down the road.
