Bar Review: Beer Table
- Address: 427 7th Avenue (between 14th and 15th Streets) – Park Slope

- What to get? Ask the owners.
Beer Table is the teeny, tiny bar located in the part of town the real estate folks currently call the “South Slope.” Get there early if you want a seat. There are only three small communal tables and a bench in the front window that could accommodate 2 people (maybe 3 hipsters, or at least their skinny jeans).
The beer menu changes daily. The limited food menu of small plates, charcuterie and pickled items are meant to complement the beers. The owners are friendly, knowledgeable and helpful in your decision making process.
Most of the complaints I have heard about Beer Table concern some of the prices for the beers. Yes, $9 for a beer is expensive. But the beers being served are specialty beers that are not likely to be found in any other bar and they are constantly being switched out. If you are looking to get hammered on cheap beer, Murray Hill is about 30-45 minutes away by subway. If you are looking to try some unique and interesting beers that often pair well with food, give Beer Table a try.
