A tribute to Mugs Ale House in Williamsburg, Brooklyn

Brew York recently published an article (http://brewyorknewyork.com/post/32751603780/brooklyn-brewery-mugs-alehouse-collaborate-to) celebrating the 20th anniversary of Mugs Ale House (125 Bedford Avenue, Brooklyn, NY).  We at Pub Crawl NYC were not aware that Mugs had been around that long!  We have been including Mugs on various NYC beer bar crawls since early 2000.  We remember going there when it did not open on Saturdays until 2pm (kitchen wasn’t open until 5pm).  Now, with Williamsburg having become such a popular place to live and hang out, Mugs is open by noon on Saturdays with the kitchen opening around the same time.  With approximately 30 frequently-rotating taps, the beer selection is superb.  A nice mix of local brews (the Brooklyn Brewery is just around the corner), other U.S. craft-beers and some imports is offered.  If you’ve never been or haven’t visited in a while, do yourself a favor and get to Mugs Ale House!
