Visited May 2012.
It happened to be Captain Lawrence night which was cool since I got to try some random stuff like Hops and Roses and a few others that I canít remember off the top of my head. The place was extremely busy (no doubt due to the themed night but who knows) and I was just lucky enough to squeeze into the bar and order some tasters. Actually got to try quite a bit of new stuff, most of which was actually not Captain Lawrence. Met some really nice people who were also crammed in tight around me. Despite it being that full I enjoyed myself and would go back. Good tap line up, friendly atmosphere, and reasonable prices.

Man this is a small place! Itís basically a living room. 40 people makes the place feel very crowded very quickly. Now they do have a pretty solid tap list and a cask or two and they are located across the street from Johnís Pizza which is a plus, but if I go back again it wonít be at night when itís crowded and lout.

Much smaller than I thought, neighborhood feel, all wood decoration, low lighting. Music was a bit loud for me and I think I havenít met the best menu + I had to reorder my allagash four 3 times for the barman to finally get it right, so I was a bit let down./// I finally visited the new Blind Tiger and the selection was very impressive. I think there must have been 10 beers I would really have wanted to try out of the 25 or so they had on draught and that is after aving tried about 1500 american beers. The prices seemed to have gone up a bit though with the pint averaging 6$ a piece and some rarer brews gathering up to 7$ for a 12-ounce glass. The bottle list, if looking a bit expensive, is equally impressive. Focus on tremendous quality. Obviously knowledgeable staff. Similar look than before if a bit bigger.

Great neighbourhood pub. Strong tap list. Doesn't get the press of certain other NYC beer bars, but I thought it was the best. Great neighbourhood, too.

Great little bar on a street with tons of interesting food choices. One cannot help but pop in for a pint or three. They also hold special events in which they showcase one brewery in particular (pretty much what Rattle íní Hum does too). The day I visited, that brewery was Dickís from WA state. Atmosphere is very casual with service at the bar only, children in strollers in the afternoon; very laid back and unpretentious. Iíll drop in every time Iím in the neighborhood, thatís for sure.

Small space with some very rickety tables (keep your hands on your glass at all times), but it manages to keep its charm. Great rotating tap selection and some pretty knowledgable bar staff. Some very interesting clientele make it a great place for a day of people-watching.
The New Blind Tiger
Small (smaller than the old place) wooden room with a large L-shaped bar in the middle. About 6 small round tables and a few square ones on the back wall, make the seating fairly tight when it is busy (which is often). The tap list is excellent though, with about 30 taps pouring at any one time. There is also a hand pump and occasional gravity casks as well. Sandwiches are quite good as well, although Iím usually just here for the beer. Frequent events also add to the appeal. Currently, the best beer bar in Manhattan. The weekly beer events are insane with at least 10 and up to 30 lines from a single brewer for any given event.

This re-opened place (I do not know myself how it was before) is in a corner of Greenwich Village near some other clubs. It is a standout craft beer pub. Room to stand around or socialize around a basic table, with an alert bartender Lol, and rapidly changing taps. I think there were 20 taps and 2 useable casks. There was also a top notch bottle selection, though nothing I could not buy much cheaper at a good store. I was comfortable here, and the beer was served fresh and right.

Sort of agree with Cletus here: very small place with a near impossible to read tap list in chalk behind the bar high in the sky. Packed to the freaking gills on the weekend. Pretty much impossible to move. I could not even get one single drink here after 10 minutes of dicking around. Tap list looked pretty good with nothing really outstanding save for some Cigar City stuff that can be tough to find. Probably a lot of fun on the weekdays and good for special events. But as a regular beer venue it has become a monster house.

Came here for Two Brothers night in late July. The place was packed but still got great service. The bartenders were attentive and very accomodating. I wanted to sample the many beers they had on tap and the bartender accomodated my wishes by serving me in small-sized glasses. And the selection was miraculous. About 15 Two Brothers beers on draught, either standard taps or in actual casks - very cool. I had a fantastic experience and I look forward to returning.

A must stop on a pub crawl of Manhattanís best beer joints, my most recent visit 30/05/12.
Solid and interesting tap list from aroud the US - 30ish with cask lines available. Never looked beyond the tap list to the bottle menu tbh. Quite a small venue and if you are heading here on a weekday evening you normally need to get in before 4.30ish to bag a table. The day I last visited was a Wednesday and at around 4.30/5pm they put out 4 different cheeses, biscuits and bread for drinkers to help themselves too.
ID check on the door from around 5pm and everyone was getting checked, even 50 year old office workers! Service is bar only and usually fine - if you can get it! My only gripe is that locals and post office drinkers take up every inch of the bar on stools so itís sometimes difficult to get through to get service. Iíve even seen some cretins form a second rown of bar stools, grrr!
That aside a great bar with a great selection. Happy hour something like 4 till 6?
