Best Beer Bar

The Diamond

43 Franklin St, Greenpoint
Fancy beers are served with a smile at this almost hidden gem. Located far enough from the closest G train stop to maintain the feel of a low-key, private club, this shuffleboard mecca serves a robust chili, meat-and-cheese plates and other simple food for pairing with the rotating selection of reasonably priced microbrews. Settle in with regulars at the half-circle bar, and in the airy backyard, watch out for flying rubber ring quoits.

RUNNER UP:
Spuyten Duyvil, 359 Metropolitan Ave
The rustic interior and continental back patio are pleasant places to stay for as long as it takes to sample your fill of the hundred-odd boks, blondes and Entire Butt Porters on tap, cask and bottle. The menu gets a jump on the Kingdom of Belgium's inevitable severance, with separate entries for Flemish and Wallonian brewskis.
