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.

Crackiní neighbourhood bar. I swung through mid afternoon and after avoiding being flattened by a lorry due to roadworks completely blocking the footpaths (thanks NYC), I managed to make my way in and easily grabbed a spot at the bar. I was greeted with proper tunes playing through the speakers (think jazz and blues) and at perfect levels not to interrupt conversation. Friendly and chatty barstaff who were attentive but not over bearing whatsoever. A really good selection of taps with something for everyone. I didnít order food but the smell wafting from the kitchen was epic. Itís a no-brainer to come check out Blind Tiger whenever in NYC.

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?

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.

Classic bar and thereís really not that much else like it in the village. When I went the selection was a little boring, and they donít seem to take beer that seriously, but it really depends on when you hit it up. Johnís pizza across the street is good.

Blind Tiger is located at the corner of Bleecker Street and Jones near the West Village.

The exterior is nice and divey looking. The inside is small with a couple tables immediately past the entrance and the L-shaped bar tucked away in the rear with stools around it. A couple windows looking outside, faux fireplace, and hanging lights. Several chalkboards in the bar area listing the beers.

The tap list is around 30 with breweries like Oskar Blues, Cigar City, Kuka, Allagash and River Horse. Three casks as well, and around 20 bottles with an emphasis on Sours and vintage brews.

Service on a relatively busy weeknight was pretty good. We were at a table and had to go to the bar for service, and the bartenders were fairly attentive and knowledgeable.

My colleague and I split a grilled cheese as a late night snack and it was good.

Overall I give the nod to Rattle N Hum as far as my favorite NYC bar of the evening, but I would definitely stop in here again on future visits.

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.

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.

Visited for lunch on a Tuesday. The place is very small, I walked in and really couldnít imagine this place hosting the events I have heard they have. It must be insane on those days, but on a quiet Tuesday it was a perfect spot. World class tap list, the food I had was top notch (tomato soup and grilled cheese with bacon) and the service was attentive, knowledgeable and very nice. The highlight of the visit was certainly the conversation. I was surrounded on all sides by beer lovers and everyone was happy and chilled out. One of the best beer bars I have been to, for certain.

94 = ★★★★Ĺ (World class)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

A pretty nice place. I visited on a lazy Monday afternoon, and had the run of the place pretty much to myself. The ambiance is fine, though not particularly cozy. The barís adorned with all kinds of random tat, the lighting is low and somber. The service was quite friendly. The selection was strong - on my visit 34 taps were firing, plus 3 casks and about 40 bottles to choose from. There were probably 8 local beers on tap, with other highlights being a grisette and a fruit beer from Kuhnhenn. Ruination 10th Anniversary was due to be tapped later in the day, so they obviously get some choice kegs. The value was fine, normal for NYC. Overall, definitely a place to seek out.
