DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN — A massive beer hall is in the works for Downtown Brooklyn, according to city documents.

Fulton Beer Hall, from the owner of Putnam’s on Myrtle Avenue, will be a “relaxed and unpretentious” place to drink, according to Gerard Rooney's proposal to Community Board 2.

“FBH will strive to be a place for people to come to relax with friends, unwind after a long day at work and enjoy great beer and great food,” the proposal says.

“We will be leaving the corporate, cold, impersonal service to our competitors in the neighborhood.”

The venue will seat more than 300 people at 49 indoor tables and 12 outdoor ones. It would take up residence at 141 Lawrence St., near Metrotech, across from a forthcoming soup dumpling counter.  It's proposed to be open until 4 a.m. daily.

Images submitted with the proposal show exposed brick interiors with wooden tables and high ceilings.

The beer hall will also serve wood-fired pizza, pretzels, salads and entrees like organic chicken and steak, according to the proposed menu.

Rooney did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
