When I talk about the first time I went to The Brew Inn, I end up sounding like I’m telling the story of the first time I met my spouse. I had just moved to Greenpoint (on a whim), knew nothing about the neighborhood, and was walking around looking for a place where no one would judge me for my lack of shower or clothes that really should not have been seen by people besides my mom. I walked past this generic-looking corner pub that I was sure I’d never go to again and thought, perfect.

I expected the crowd of regulars and the TVs on the walls, but what I did not expect was an absolutely killer burger. Massive, messy, two-layered, and topped with cheese, arugula, and probably too many caramelized onions, The Brew Inn’s burger is the platonic ideal of what you want to eat while dining solo. That burger is the only real reason you’d ever need to come to this place, but it’s one hell of a good reason.

And if you’re not alone? As long as you’re with people who won’t judge you for what you look like when eating this thing, The Brew Inn also works for a casual group eating/drinking situation. Maybe you’ll even meet someone who you can talk about the way we talk about this burger.
