As part foodie, I’m usually happy to eat — except when I’m eating my own words. During my first post in a series on beer gardens, or rather biergartens, I had this to say:
The question still remains: When will Park Slope receive its first beer garden? I’ll even take a garden in an old brewery (I mean, brouwerij) in Bushwick, that’s how desperate we are. I’m looking at you, Red Hook.
It seems my whining has brought us Mission Dolores (249 4th Ave, btw President and Carrol St). It’s not exactly an old brewery, but a church is close enough. The partially open-roofed space is being opened by the brothers that own craft-haven Bar Great Harry in Cobble Hill. The rustic, “bayou”-themed bar features tables fashioned from reclaimed NYC firewood and even pinball. But most importantly, they’ll have 20 taps, most of them rotating, featuring several local breweries. It’s been a long time coming and the weather is right, so we’ll see you there tonight
