24 craft beers on tap, an impressive list of scotch and bourbons. Cozy into a nook or take a seat at the copper bar punctuated by high airy ceilings, spectacular woodwork and elegant lightning.

Loved this bar! I was there on a Sunday at the tail end of a soccer game and the vibe was really fun! There are several TVs and big screens, so I see why it's ideal for game watching. We ended up talking to quite a few people while we were there - it attracts a good crop of people! They have quite a few staple promotional programs like playing Game of Thrones on Sunday nights which is fun. They have some European beers on tap that I've never seen before, but really enjoyed. I will for sure be back!

Really nice staff and a relaxing atmosphere. Plenty of beers on tap that they rotate to keep it interesting.

Among the places I will miss most after moving away, Banter is an elegant public house-style bar. In a neighborhood that can be obnoxiously trendy, Banter stands among a select few bars that feel built on quality, warmth, friendliness. Great, rotating tap. Good whiskey / bourbon selection. Excellent for morning soccer or late-night conversation.

Had a panini there for lunch. Got sick from the food. Everything else was OK. Bartender was nice.

This place is awesome. The bartender/owner was super friendly, knowledgeable about beers, and willing to give people samples. They have 24 taps with a lot of interesting variety. As I ate a nice vegetarian curry pie and sipped on a somewhat locally brewed (NY state) Belgian style ale, I thought I might really enjoy living in Williamsburg.

This bar is a good place to drink and watch TV. There was a Bloody Mary special the time I was there. Also, a buddy of mine went there to eat with me and the food was delicious. This was during the time of the Olympics where there was a good selection of TV there to watch different sports. Would definitely come back to drink again.

Excellent mix of night life and quiet comfort. You can have a party and a conversation at the same time! The staff is the best in town and the beer selection might be as well. If you're a soccer fan this is your place. There's no team allegiance so all fans are welcome. If you're not a soccer fan... most games are in the morning so this is still your place.
