Covenhoven Beer Bar Opens in Crown Heights

Covenhoven beer bar opened Sunday next to the old Chavela’s spot on Classon Avenue, bringing a wide selection of craft beers and a touch of local history to western Crown Heights. The tap room at 730 Classon Avenue borrows its name from a family farm that extended from the corner at Park Place up to Atlantic Avenue and Grand Avenue.

The bar has sixteen beers on tap, with an emphasis on New York City and regional brewers, in addition to an extensive collection of bottled beers. For now the food is limited to pretzels from Pelzers, a Philly-style pretzel shop a few blocks over on Sterling Place, but owners Bill and Molly Bradford plan on expanding the food menu in the near future.

  • art gallery? hahahahhahhhhhahahhhhhahah

  • Welcome to the neighborhood and best of luck. I’ll be sure to drop by as have already heard good things.
    I’m wondering if Classon will start to become more built up and lively, given this new place, The Classon, existing Pete Zaaz, and I believe some others planned.

  • “….after the jump…” I thought people stopped saying this circa 2003.

  • Stopped by this place twice Friday night and was pretty disappointed. The first time was at 7:30 and it was over run with kids, my friend literally could not open the front door due to several toddlers playing with toys right at the entrance. We both left and came back at 9:30. There were no kids by then so we decided to go in and grab a beer. For starters calling this place a beer hall is a stretch. It’s more of a glorified hallway with a couple of taps and a refrigerator in the back. The decor consists of a few church pews and a bunch of graphic beer trays hot glued to the wall. The beer and pretzel we had was ok but overpriced. Definitely will not be going back, there are way better options one block away on Franklin.
