Hidden behind the deceptive facade of a small storefront lies one of the most popular European bars in Brooklyn. Nestled in the up-and-coming corner of Prospect Heights, Washington Commons lures with the promise of craft ales and experimental fusion cuisine. Although compact by New York standards, the rear beer garden is a delightful courtyard, fashioned in the style of an Italian vineyard with creeping vines and overhanging trees. Over sixteen beers are offered on a rotating basis, including the bizarrely named Gaffel Kolsch and Piraat.
