The oldest bar in Brooklyn is now the newest bar in Brooklyn

Until recently, PJ Hanley's -- originally opened in 1874 -- was the oldest bar in Brooklyn. But now it's become Goldenrod, which is more than a term of endearment from Han Solo to C-3PO -- it was once a beer brewed in BK's Otto Huber Brewery, and is now a serious sawdust-on-the-floor, craft-beer bar that keeps the turn-of-the-century drinking vibe, but adds an outdoor beer garden, and, you know, electricity.

In addition to serious suds like Bayou Teche Boucanee and Southern Tier Hop Sun, they've also got Goldenrod house brews made up for them by Brooklyn Brewery and Olde Saratoga Brewing Co.

Also on tap: wine.

Once you're set up with your drink, take it out back and soak up more than just booze.
