This wood-raftered German-style beer hall—featuring a giant cast-iron stove—serves all Greenpoint Beer Works drafts. Ten taps pour the local brewer's suds, including the dark Kelly's Baltic Porter, the crisp Peter's Pilsner and the hoppy Sam's Pale Ale. Mobile street vendor Milk Truck supplies grilled cheese sandwiches—layered with aged cheddar and applewood-smoked ham—to drinkers hunched over work stools at communal tables.
