502 Franklin Ave. (Hancock and Fulton), Bed-Stuy
What it is: The Bed-Stuy piece of the growing beer empire from team behind Bar Great Harry, Owl Farm and Mission Dolores, this dark and cozy neighborhood spot offers more of the crew’s typically great beer selection.
Why we love it: They’ve got pinball! But if that’s not enough, Glorietta Baldy hosts 12 rotating tap beers that make it a perfect spot for both beer snobs and people who just want a beer. Past the great tap choices, they also rotate through rare, limited edition bottle-only beers. You can fuel your journey through all this beer with grub from Bklyn Burro ever first Friday. Low lighting and friendly knowledgeable bartenders, plus the pinball for flirtatious smack talking, make this a great date spot.
What to order: Forget wine or champagne: the 750ml limited edition bottles are perfect if you’re out celebrating an accomplishment. If it’s just another night out drinking, you won’t go wrong with any of the draft choices or the $6 beer and shot special.
Regular tip: Glorietta Baldy is named after the Glorietta Baldy mountain bike trail, found in New Mexico.
