This is an awesome bar. A bunch of taps, which usually include some relatively rare and awesome beers (RR Beatification!!!). Special events roughly every Wednesday which are very good and usually worth it to attend (free bread and cheese too). Iíve never had to use the bottle list, but itís pretty impressive too. They always have a couple beers on cask and one on gravity keg, which is neat. The only thing I donít like about BT is that every time Iíve been there it has been super crowded, sometimes with no seats available. So get there early, if you can. Prices are variable, but usually arenít bad. Itís quite close to Penn Station, so if youíre in NYC, itís definitely worth going to. Probably my 2nd favorite bar in NYC. Their tap list is updated at least weekly too, so check it out!

The large selection of quality draught beer and knowledgeable bartenders made this my favorite stop while I was in NYC, and the laid back atmosphere will ensure I come back next time Iím in the city. Had a couple cask offerings as well as a gravity pour. Food was tasty, also. The bottle list was pretty extensive, as well. My favorite New York City beer bar.

A very good selection of fine beers. get a load of the blackboard with prices like so much bullshit... clearly the neveau riche have taken over.yet, they donít take credit cards unless you go over $25. i suppose that wonít take long. the place is small mostly old station wagon panel type wood and nothing to brag about and actually a bit cramped like a tiki bar. $1 OFF during happy hour which did run most of the afternoon into evening. i used to really like the old place, and hope this place can resemble it more as time goes bye. first time i ever felt intimidated to even ask for a sample.

stopped in twice over a weekend in NYC. Quite busy with younger 25-30 crowd. Loaded up on Sly Fox taps about 10 or so. Pretty good selection. Bottle list looked quite impressive. No booze so I had only one Victory St Boisterous one day & Sly Fox Grisette. Good place

Visited on 4th of July. Excellent tap and bottle selection, plus a selection of vintage beers. Had the deviled eggs app and thought it was tasty. Nice pub atmosphere that is not too cramped, but I am sure it must get really busy at night. Bartender was by herself and not the warmest person, but poured the beers quickly. I am glad I donít live in NYC anymore, because I would be spending a lot of time here. Great place.

Visited this place right after a Smuttynose tasting. Many rare offerings from this brewery. Nice old style bar. Staff was knowledgeable for the most part. Donít try them all and try to make it back to Brooklyn on the subway!

A long time favorite in the Village. Seems to have really taken off in their new location, as finding a spot can be a real headache after about 5. Arrive early and have a chat with Alan, heís a great guy. Wednesdays are often enhanced by the addition fo some rare beers by a guest brewer. Great beers, good food, nice people, and right across the street from Johnís Pizza, whatís not to like?

Great atmosphere - lots of wood, old tables, great view of the foot traffic on Bleecker. Lots of good taps, a few nice casks (when I was there they had Green Flash & Storm King). We were there earlier in the day and had no problems with overcrowding. The selection for the Vermont beer tasting which happened to coencide with my visit was a great treat.

Gets obnoxiously busy, but man are their beers well priced for being where it is. Visited there twice last summer and enjoyed some of their over priced bottles...including a 5 year vertical of heavyweight old salty and two bottles of cuvee de castleton
