Greenpoint Tavern - If you manage to ignore the moldy Grandpa smell, the Greenpoint Tavern is a great place to throw back a few cheep beers. The bar, with its bright red walls and random framed posters of everything from a New Yorker cover to a commemorative 9/11 picture, is completely unpretentious despite its smack-in-the-middle-of-Williamsburg location. The drink of choice is usually beer (no bottles) with the usual suspects on tap (e.g., Budweiser, Sierra Nevada, Becks) which you can either get in a mug, a pint glass, or a “big cup”. If you’re really feeling adventurous, the pub boasts a “Big Ass Beer” served in a Styrofoam cup--$3.50 for Bud or $4.50 for Becks. This little no-nonsense dive is good for cheep booze but, for impressing a date, not so much.
