Brooklyn’s Best Sports Bars for a Craft Beer

“I like Greenwood Park for a few reasons. For starters, it’s big and airy, with a few full sized Bocce courts lining the front patio. It also has good wings, draft specials during big games, multiple flat screens, a long list of craft beers served by the pitcher (a rarity in these parts) and, while it can get fairly fratty on weekend nights, it’s just a block from my apartment. You can’t beat that.” – Brooklyn Magazine




“With its 13,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space and 24 cold ones on tap, this mechanic shop turned beer garden is a New York revelation: Bigger really is better. Though not as sprawling as Queens’ Bohemian Hall or Studio Square, it’s spacious by South Slope standards; you’ll rarely have a hard time finding seats by the fireplace or outdoor heat lamps. Couple that relative roominess with Brooklyn-apropos bar food (say, a grass-fed meatball panini), happy-hour specials ($3 drafts and $4 well drinks on weekdays till 7 p.m.), and the bocce courts in back, and you’ve got all the makings of a decent birthday-party or second-date diversion.” – NY Magazine





“What’s not to love? Whether it’s the occasional free pig roast they throw during the Greenwood 3summer, a $12 pitcher and 50-cent wing special during NFL games, March Madness and the World Cup or the locally sourced beer, Greenwood Park is finally a rebuttal to Astoria’s beer garden claims, and they actually have more fun things going on. The outdoor bocce courts stay true to South Brooklyn’s stake in lawn ball sports, while the scene ranges as far as Sunset Park and Bay Ridge locals.” – Brokelyn

“Park Slope brew hounds can kick back at this massive 13,000-square-foot beer garden. Sixty taps dispense more than 20 different craft brews, including Sixpoint, Captain Lawrence and Brooklyn Brewery.” – Time Out NY

“The South Slope just scored a laid-back new outdoor drinking and eating fun zone called Greenwood Park (Facebook), just a stone’s throw from the gorgeous Greenwood Cemetery. The long-awaited 13,000-square-foot establishment, located in a former car mechanic lot, serves cheap bar grub and good deals on beer; there are $3 drafts from noon to 7 p.m.” – The Gothamist

“Move over gun owners and grossly sick cats, because Ted Nugent is indirectly doing something for hop heads at Greenwood Park, a beer garden brought to you by The Motor City Madman’s long-lost son, who turned a 13000sqft former auto repair shop into a rustic urban oasis fenced in by wooden pallets…” – Thrillist

“Random location near Green-Wood Cemetery and a Donut Connection means plenty of space to go around. Long terrace roomy enough to dock a cruise ship. Front bar shows Dekalb Market they�re not the only folks who know how to repurpose a shipping container. Stacked pallets for walls, light-industrial tables and chairs. Long interior bar picks up the theme when the weather won�t cooperate. Tons of drafts, plus bocce to keep the muscles from complete atrophy.” – Black Book

“Greenwood Heights’ first beer garden, aptly named Greenwood Park, is a massive eco-friendly beer haven that takes alfresco drinking to a new level. The 13,000-square-foot space has a recycled industrial decor, plenty of seating, two bars and a three-lane bocce ball court.” – NYC – The Official Guide

“Behind the wall of wooden pallets, sits Greenwood Park. Keeping much of the look of the former auto shop, the garage doors are closed during parts of the day but are conveniently opened up to the garden during the evening when the place starts to fill up. Indoors is a full bar. Rustic and modernly simple with clean lines of tall tables with barstools. ” – Brooklyn Exposed

“Beer lovers, rejoice: The city’s newest beer garden has officially opened for business. Greenwood Park, restaurateur Ted Mann’s long-in-the-works 13,000 square foot eating and drinking establishment with a massive outdoor space, officially opened last night on Seventh Avenue between 19th and 20th Streets, in the shadow of Greenwood Cemetery.” – Here’s Park Slope
