StueyD  (25) Heacham, England | July 20, 2015
A small downstairs bar on 40th just off 8th avenue, upstairs is a large open bar and restaurant. A loud mixed crowd of drinkers and diners. There are a number of big screens showing a variety of sports. The beer selection is very good, when we visited they had a showcase "brewery of the month" which for July is Captain Lawrence. They offer two flight options as well as the beer menu, a standard and a premium which allows a choice of all the beers. The food is typical of the style, burgers and pizzas but what we tried was very good, the spicy BBQ burger and the Authority Patty Melt sandwich were both tasty and filling! The pleasing part of the evening was when the bill arrived it was a pleasant surprise not to have to raid the federal reserve, as is the case everywhere else in the city! The service we got was friendly, attentive and helpful.

Cool place in hellís kitchen, central Manhattan, NY. They had 90 taps, iíve never seen so many before. Wide variety, mostly US products which is exaclty what i needed. Food was massive, prices are in line with the local average (food and a couple of beers around $30).

New bar by the rattle and hum owners . Way more commercial feeling though . Less special beers, expensive, very big ,... Crowd was mostly what youíd expect from a bar that does special beers in a commercial way ..

Little bit of factory kind of place. Too big for me. Lots of taps and flights available.

Located right next to the Port Authority Bus Terminal. The place is huge, and has massive amount of taps, but not that many interesting beers were available when I visited. Quite expensive place, felt a bit touristy.

Visited June 1, 2014.

This was across the street from the car rental place, so it made an easy stop after dropping off the car. Fun place with friendly service and interestingly enough three floors, but itís an Irish bar and most of the beer they had on (at least at the downstairs bar) wasnít very interesting. I see the things listed in the availability and I didnít see any of that, minus the Lagunitas. I donít really see the appeal. A few blocks away is District Tap House, go there.

Great beer anytime there was to choose from. Both on tap and bottled. The best place I visited in New York!
