The bar stretches to near-100 feet, a figure matched by the number of beers on tap, inside this 6,000-square-foot beer palace. That size means it takes up nearly the entire north side of McCarren Park, boss-status, really. When they lift the enormous garage doors, the breeze and chatter from the park floods the space, a beer hall become a beer garden with the flick of a switch (or whatever they use to operate those things). Hopefully you won't be too far gone inside a beer 'n brat coma to notice how pleasant all this is.
