    Came here for my birthday recently and loved it. The person I contacted from Fools gold reserved a section of seats for my friends. They were very chill and it worked out great. Great beer selection!

    Low key bar with good music, friendly staff and space! Lots of varieties of beers, cocktails and fancier than average food incl truffle popcorn and a penne version of mac n cheese.

    Massive and great beer selection, and a very fun bingo on Sunday nights! Great and casual neighborhood bar for hanging out and chilling with friends.

    The AYCD brunch is amazing. $30 for the taps, can beers, bloody Mary's and mimosas plus one of the amazing entrees. Sat and sun, plus holiday Mondays! If the blackberry mint julep is on tap, get it!

    Fun bar with plenty of TV screens for Sports and ample room to #getweird if the occasion calls for it. Top notch ownership too! 🍺

    The tap list is overwhelming with some of the best craft beers a gal could as for, so don't be afraid to ask for a recommendation.

    Awesome craft beers (and whiskey) on tap. And the food is well executed too. Great spot for a low key birthday or drinks with friends!

    They have one of the best selections of craft beer that I've seen. As for brunch, the BBQ pork and grits with a fried egg is a solid choice. It get's this girl's southern stamp of approval.

    Big tap list and always crowded, but the place is big enough there's always a spot to sit or stand. Great sports bar with vibe that strikes a balance on the LES side of Bro vs Craft

    Increadible beer selection on tap. Order the Duck Confit Poutine and watch the people around you go crazy... It smells and tastes delicious!

    Great selection at this western themed bar. They were out of a lot of what was on tap though. I had to go with my third choice upon looking at the menu.

    FG is located where White Rabbit lounge once stood. It's certainly an upgrade. The craft beers & shoestring truffle fries are good. $0.50 wings during NFL games. Bartender Justin concots great shots.

    One of my top beer bars in the city. Nice Lunch Specials & Happy Hour. A great amount of beers on tap, and don't be afraid to ask for a rec.

    Sister bar of The Jeffrey, this place packs tons of draft lines of Beer, Cider and Wine to meet your needs. Plus it has an awesome food menu as well!

    Come for the top-notch happy hour, stay for the 30+ rare craft drafts and top quality bar foods. Oysters and (made on site) ginger drinks are also a plus.

    This place is very spacious and fantastic. If you are nearby then do not miss it for food or a drink. If you are not nearby, then plan a trip to visit!

    Every ingredient on the menu has a modifier. So if you like 'Grainy' mustard or 'Irish' bacon or 'Cream cheese' frosting or 'Sour' jalepenos or 'Wisconsin' cheese curds or even 'Marcona' almonds...

    Plenty of beer, whiskey and TVs. The  Sriracha Honey wings are delicious. I was worried they'd be more sweet than spicy, but they had great heat.

    Have Matt “make [you] something good" and you won't regret it. He listens to what you like in cocktails and will make a drink you won't forget.

    Looking for some craft beer, bourbon & bites this evening? Fools Gold has just opened in the LES. Try the Truffle Popcorn or Siracha peas!

    Kusshi oysters from BC. Small oysters that pack plenty of flavor. Worth the upgrade over the Ware River oysters from VA. Yum!

    Lots of craft beer to choose from, good for a late night. Has attracted a bit more of a rowdy crowd since the word got out about this new place.

    Looking for a snack? You might be tempted by the "IPA Brined Chicken Taco" but don't do it. Stick to the Duck Confit taco or Korean BBQ taco!

    Unlike any other place, this bar has a "2 drinks minimum" for credit cards. You can't pay your $9 half-pint with plastic.
