This is the second in our series of profiles of the bars and beer-centric eateries featured in the Brooklyn Beer Book (great places, all, even without coupons.)

Tonight, Team Brokelyn is going to be heading over to The Sackett for the first-ever Speakeasy, a spoken-word/comedy night hosted by our very own Beth Hoyt. Come join us!

661 Sackett St. at Fourth Ave., Park Slope, 718-622-0437

What it is: Brokelyn’s unofficial hang epitomizes the two most overused word in the history of bar writeups: friendly and cozy.
Why we love it: The owners Michael and Ann are so cool you’ll want to become their third partner.
Who to bring: Boggle ringers—if you can beat Ann at Boggle, she’ll buy you a free drink. Since we announced this challenge in December, she’s never had to buy one. Or at least she hasn’t admitted it to us. [UPDATE: Ann writes in to tell us she had “one defeat about a month ago.” Can anyone do a double lutz on her tonight?]
What to order: Order in empanadas from Bogota Latin Bistro. They deliver to the bar.
Sackett fun fact: The Poor Man’s Punch is a Brokelyn-inspired cocktail of cranberry and pineapple juice and old rum left behind by the space’s previous tenants, a Latin American restaurant.
