Once you drink all of the state cocktails at Kilo Bravo, you might want to spend a bit more time in some locations. Luckily, Brooklyn has a plenty of region-themed bars just waiting to sweep patrons away to the knotty pine of the Midwest or the mountain air of the South.

Lake Street

This Minnesota-themed bar focuses on non-pretentiousness, plaid, and indie rock — and it is owned by actual indie rockers, to boot.

[706 Manhattan Ave. between Norman and Messerole avenues in Greenpoint, (718) 609–0005, www.lakestreetbar.com].

Pacific Standard

You are always three hours early at this Northern California-influenced Park Slope bar. Claiming to be Brooklyn’s official University of California alumni bar, Pacific Standard’s TVs are tuned to Golden Bears games while its taps are filled with West Coast craft brews.

[82 Fourth Ave. between St. Marks Place and Bergen Street in Park Slope, (718) 858–1951, www.pacificstandardbrooklyn.com].

Windy City Ale House

Call it a hockey-themed bar with a Chicago problem. If you think Blackhawks and Cubs games aren’t the same without relish-covered dogs and Goose Island, this Bay Ridge watering hole is the place to be.

[7915 Third Avenue between 80th and 79th streets in Bay Ridge, (718) 630–5700].

Montana’s Trail House

Don’t let the title fool you (the owner’s name is Montana) — this Bushwick bar actually has an Appalachian motif. The interior was constructed out of a barn shipped from Kentucky and the food includes a tongue and cheek Reuben, and rabbit terrine.

[445 Troutman St. at Saint Nicholas Avenue in Bushwick, (917) 966–1666, www.montanastrailhouse.com].

Clemente’s Maryland Crabhouse

This Sheepshead Bay eatery is not technically a bar — and for some reason it specializes in tiki drinks — but the crab chowder is pure Old Line State.

[3939 Emmons Ave. off Shore Parkway in Sheepshead Bay, (718) 646–7373, www.clementescrabhouse.com].

Hill Country Barbecue

The bar at this Downtown Texas barbecue emporium is often busier than the restaurant itself, and offers its own Lone Star-style menu — including Frito pie (that’s a bag of Fritos covered in chili) and queso and chips, in addition to the standard smoked stuff. Wash it down with a pint of Shiner.

[345 Adams St. between Fulton and Willoughby streets in Downtown, (718) 885–4608, www.hillcountrybk.com].
