Stick with rattle & hum unless youíre in the area. Big, giant, expensively built out space, fairly corporate/sanitized. Pretty loud. Decent selection but probably not quite as good as R&H. One of the ítenders castigated me for not drinking quickly enough while seated at the bar. Really buddy? Yeah I guess Iíll start chugging this barley wine because itís really meant to be housed like that. Annoying.

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!

Stopped into Beer Authority when in Manhattan on 7/9/13. A: The place is pretty big with three floors of seating and a nice sized bar area. The location is really convienent as it is located across the street from the Port Authority Bus Terminal. The place has the feel of a nice warm bar. Q: The beers on tap were decent, nothing that will make your jaw drop but nothing BMC either. S: The bartenders were personable and outgoing. The service was more than efficient and they were on top of things when your glass went dry. S: The selection was decent as they had a nice variety of beers on tap. They also featured a nice sized bottle collection but the prices they were charging for bottles made it hard to break away from the taps, which were cheaper in price. I was a little disappointed that they didnít feature more beers from the NYC/LI area. V: Draft prices were $8 for your lower end beers up to $15 for a couple of beers that I thought werenít worth the price. Keep in mind that you are paying Manhattan prices, so dont expect to come here and not break the bank at end place you stop for a beer. Overall, if you are coming into NYC from another destination, it is really easy to get to and not to far away from Times Square...a nice stop.
