Although sometimes it feels like Uncle Barry’s predates time itself, it’s actually only been three years. But what a three years its been!
Come celebrate with us this Thursday (Nov. 6) as we ring in another year of bardom with the help of an 8-foot party sub from Park Slope sandwich legends Russo’s as well as 50% off any drinks in the house all night. We’ll be kicking things off around 8:00.
Thank you to everyone who has hung out and supported us over these past three years, this night is for you guys, for without you we would have never made it this far. So come stuff your face with sub and cheap drinks and allow us to appreciate you inside and out.
Coming soon from the Uncle Barry’s collective is Moot Bar, a new drinking establishment located at 579 Myrtle Ave at the intersection of Myrtle and Classon Ave.
Moot Bar, which is expected to open sometime in November, will bring the diverse array of offerings typical of Uncle Barry’s to a comfortable and newly refurbished setting.
Black beer lovers (That is to say lovers of black beer rather than specifically black people who love beer) rejoice!
Uncle Barry’s welcomes a tide of dark seasonal offerings including Ashtray Heart, a smoked porter by the famed Danish gypsy brewer Evil Twin, Bell’s Double Cream Stout and, per annual tradition, Founders Breakfast Stout.
Nothing helps stave off the sadness of a 6:00 sunset like a couple of pints of dark beer!
As the keen weather observer has noticed, summer has given way to fall, and as always Uncle Barry’s menu reflects the inevitability of seasonal change.
A new fall cocktail, the AppleJack Torrance, features its namesake AppleJack brandy along with honey, Averna amaro and orange bitters.
New beer options include a couple of pumpkin beers from Dogfish Head and Weyerbacher, 16-oz tallboy cans of Bell’s Two-Hearted IPA and German brewery Hacker-Pschorr’s excellent Oktoberfest Märzen.
On the lower end of the beer spectrum we’ll be offering up cans of Maryland’s own National Bohemian (‘Natty Boh’ affectionately) for $4 during all Orioles playoff games. The O’s playoff games only happen a couple of times a generation, may as well live it up. In addition to the O’s, we’ll be showing all MLB playoff and World Series games throughout the postseason.
Congratulations to all 22 finishers of Uncle Barry’s 2nd annual 31 Beers of August challenge. You shall live on eternally on the hallowed walls of our drinking establishment:
In addition to enshrinement, the winners each received a trophy and an Uncle Barry’s tee-shirt, as well as the satisfaction that accompanies drinking a lot of beer.
Just a reminder that, as always, Uncle Barry’s will have the Direct TV NFL package delivering every game all season long, beginning with Thursday night’s Packers-Seahawks tilt. Packers and Redskins games will take priority on the big screen but feel free to request any other games you want to see on either of our two TV’s.
We’ll also be opening at noon on Saturdays and Sundays for the duration of the college and NFL seasons, so feel free to come by early and drink more beer while you wait for the early games to start.
We had so much fun drinking a lot of beer last August that we decided to do it again.
Uncle Barry’s is proud to present the second installment of the 31 Beers of August. Same deal as last year — drink 31 different beers (bottle or draft) between August 1 and August 31 and win an Uncle Barry’s tee-shirt, a trophy and best of all, your photograph on the wall at the bar so that future patrons can admire what an excellent quantity and variety of beer you drank in August of 2014.
During the unseemly Prohibition Era of United States history in which radical special interests exerted their will over the rest of the country and alcohol became contraband, Pennsylvania’s famed Yuengling Brewery kept the money flowing by making ice cream. After prohibition ended in 1933, Yuengling Dairy became an institution in its own right, making and distributing ice cream for decades before closing up shop in 1985.
Now, with radicals once again running amok in national politics and Yuengling Ice Cream back on the shelves, Uncle Barry’s is making beer floats. $8 gets you a scoop of vanilla or espresso-chocolate chip Yuengling ice cream floating in a pint glass of Yuengling or Guinness. We’ll have these bad boys available throughout the summer while supplies last.
