November 24, 2010
By

For a Tuesday night, Bar Great Harry was pretty hopping. The combination of a short holiday week (Thanksgiving), the high percentage of Sixpoint brews on tap for “The Brothers Wiley Rock Sixpoint” and a dog-friendly, comfortable, neighborhood bar in Carroll Gardens drew quite the crowd.

Even when building a beer garden from the ground up, you have to start somewhere. That’s possibly why the two brothers who brought us Bar Great Harry in Cobble Hill, started with a vacated auto shop in Park Slope when they created Mission Dolores, a beer garden with an old soul and a modern twist.…
