Brokelyn bar of the Week: It’s High Dive!

by -

We’re kicking off our series on venues featured in the Brokelyn Beer Book 2 today with a returning favorite: High Dive. See the whole list here at the Brokelyn Bar Guide.

243 Fifth Ave. between Carroll & President, Park Slope, 718-788-0401

What it is: A lively, smart-looking spot in prime Slope carved out of a former “dive” bar location.
Why we love it:
The beer selection is great, with 15 on tap and nearly 30 in bottles. But there’s cheap Miller High Lifes if you need to go that route, free popcorn (Old Bay optional) and a rad pinball machine. The jukebox is solid and the back porch is a well-decorated place to relax.
Who to bring: Your digital friends (free WiFi all the time); Talking Heads fans (see below).
What to order: The selection is ever-rotating, but we’re suckers for the Brooklyn seasonals that get lots of time in the spotlight here. If we’re lucky, look for the return of Cookie Jar Porter this year.
High Dive fun fact: After his free concert in Prospect Park last summer, David Byrne went to High Dive for the after party. He rode his bike there.
