The Williamsburg Beer Hall Was Worth The Wait

 

Sixty taps, two cask ales and 180 bottles—clearly, a lack of options is not a problem at newly opened East Williamsburg beer hall The Well. The ambition extends beyond the bounty of beer on offer, however, and has been the main reason that the Well’s opening has been repeatedly delayed.
