Bar of the Day: Pacific Standard

Pacific StandardThis is the latest entry in our series on the venues featured in the Brokelyn Beer Book. Pacific Standard in Park Slope is the bar for all your indoor, rainy-weekend needs: big-screen basketball, board games, Sunday night pub quiz.


82 4th Ave., between Bergen & St. Marks, Park Slope, 718-858-1951

What it is: Diversion-heavy bar, heavy on the West Coast microbrews and cask ales, also host to trivia nights, poetry readings and other special events.
Why we love it:
Impressively curated selection of beers without astronomical prices. Plus they have a library in the back, a pinball machine and an ample supply of board games to prevent you from ever getting bored. Have you tried drunk Battleship?
Who to bring:
Your smartest friends for Sunday trivia night, sports fans (big screen in the back for games), people who like to savor beer more than chug it.
What to order: Beers on tap rotate frequently, but our favorites right now include the Rogue Dead Guy Ale, which you can use to taunt your Battleship opponent.
Pacific Standard fun fact: The bar has become somewhat of a gathering ground for California ex-pats, which there are quite a few of around here.
