The Wilky Est. JAN 2016

The Wilky has quickly become the Craft Beer Bar Brooklyn destination, not only for its Bed-Stuy neighbors but for many in the craft beer community.  With 18 craft beers on tap at all times there’s good reason to come back again and again – exceptional craft beer and so much more. Knowledgeable staff, including The Wilky’s own Cicerones, create unique and varied beer choices and cocktails, and the food offerings excite the palate.

This Craft Beer Bar Brooklyn is where friends bring their friends and make new ones. The neighborhood bar environment makes The Wilky a great place for local residents from near and far to relax.  The patina of the original tin walls and ceiling along with the rustic shimmer of the handmade wooden bar and table tops make this an eclectic place to bring guests and family too.  The warm atmosphere in The Wilky promotes community while inviting conversation to flourish.  Long time neighbors discover each other for the first time while sharing a craft beer or an expertly shaken cocktail and discussing their favorite sandwich.

The feeling of being in the right place, the home-away-from-home atmosphere often begins with a personal greeting from the bartender, who is also a Cicerone.  The well-trained staff can guide a customer to their new favorite craft beer based on their personal tastes.  They are prepared to take the adventurer on a craft beer tasting journey or prepare a seasonal cocktail with skill – and dress it with an olive or lemon zest.  While this is a “craft beer bar,” our bartenders have the ability to be inventive with spirits chosen for their high quality and superior taste.

Traditional “bar food” offerings have been kicked up a notch.  From among the sandwiches, the pressed Cuban is a favorite for many regulars. Chips and dips and the recently added lettuce “wedge” offer a variety of options for snacking.  Arriving hot from the oven, the soft pretzel is so big it will rattle your understanding of the word “pretzel.” The Wilky partners are always on the hunt for food sensations to pair with the many flavors of the Craft Beer Bar Brooklyn experience they create for their patrons.


You don’t need to be an aficionado of any kind to enjoy and appreciate good craft beer, wine, spirits, and food in a warm and welcoming environment; you just need to be into treating yourself well.  Treat yourself to the pleasure that follows pulling up a stool at The Wilky.  This Craft Beer Bar Brooklyn experience involves a warm handshake and a sincere desire to ensure your comfort and enjoyment.

    Historical / Style Relevance

    Tasting Notes

    • A truly unique India Pale Ale, this iteration of our Jai Alai IPA boasts the addition of white oak spirals to impart sleek notes of vanilla, coconut and a touch of dill to Jai Alai’s bold citrus and caramel character. The oak also serves to temper the bitterness in the 70 IBU base beer while oak tannins elegantly dry the beer’s body to create a unique drinking experience that still remains true to Jai Alai’s unique qualities. (Cigar City)
    • Vanilla, coconut, tangerine and a hint of dill all vie for attention on the nose of this unique oak-aged IPA. Jai Alai’s familiar caramel malt character and clementine-like hop flavors are both complimented by drying, oaky tannins and a pronounced vanillin quality with each sip.

    Brewers Notes

    Cigar City White Oak Jai Alai IPA · 7.5% ABV This is an American White Oak-aged version of Jai Alai India Pale Ale. The white oak adds smoothing notes of vanilla and slight hints of dill to the aroma and flavor profile. The finish is elegantly dry due to the light tannin notes from oak aging and though still loaded with hop flavor, hop bitterness is more restrained.
