Great place in the village. Plenty of great stuff on tap, cask, and bottled. Bar staff was very friendly and helpful. Food was good. Went late during the week, so crowds were not a problem. Probably drank too much and stayed out too late, but still a great time.

The only place I went to twice. Awesome selection with I believe 4 casks at the time. Awesome pub atmostphere with old wood floors and seating. Real small and can be hard to get a spot but itís worth it. Tons of bottles to choose from also but with like 300% markups which I would never pay. Food was real good mostly appetizer type of stuff but the BBQ chicken quesadilla we had both nights was awesome so was the corny russian. Good local NY selection of beers, Iíll be back for sure.

nhorween took me out here and it was a good time. big taplist of mostly domestic crafts, esp. northeast.. all of which were quality. they had a few cask beers but they didnít appeal to me. there was one bartender that was a pretty big douche bag. we had some sandwiches that were decent. typical pub food. pints of sixpoint and red rocket were the same price ($6) as a miller lite that i got at some guido yankees bar. i remember at some drunken point saying "this place is fucking awesome". nick told me it would be packed when we got there and then clear out around 11. boy was he right. i was pretty buzzed by the time i got there and wasted by the time i left but i remember really liking the quaint atmosphere, sort of a hipster pub. iíd go back in a heartbeat. Iíll give the service a medium ranking only because nickís friend worked there and he hooked him up.

Really cool place that was easy to find with decent food and a friendly staff. Tap selection is nice - lots of Capt. Lawrence, Sixpoint, etc. About 25-30 taps, multiple cask beers, and around 50 bottles - some of the rarest stuff around (Heavyweight Old Salty, CL Cuvee de Castleton). The downside here is price (yeah, its Manhattan) but not bad considering where you are and what they have.

Probably the best beer bar in Manhattan. I went there for the first time during a Thursday night post work rush. The place is smaller and with the crowd it was a little loud. We were able to get a seat at the bar and everything went well from there. We got to take advantage of the unique collection of beers from Iron Hill and Sly Fox. I ordered the first beer on my own, an Odyssey DIPA which was great but a poor first choice. Itís hard to go anywhere from those hops. The owner was helpful in leading me to my second choice, a refreshing Iron Hill Saison. The staff is friendly and helpful and have a solid knowledge of their beer. I liked the place so much I made a quick trip back on Sunday before my flight.

An all right place. Bartender seemed nice, and the atmosphere was friendly. Didnít try the food, but the beers were presented in proper glasswear. Pretty crowded. Some of the stuff that was on the menu wasnít on tap at the time, unfortunately.

Iím re-rating the Tiger after my second trip to its new location. God, I love this place. This time I came later in the day, when it wasnít shoulder-to-shoulder, and I actually got to sit at the bar, where Alan was able to talk beer with me. Itís great the way heíll offer samples and figure out exactly what beer might be right for you given whatever youíre in the mood for. The atmosphere is, of course, pleasantly publike, but with lots of windows providing natural light. This is the kind of place where no-one feels like a stranger, because the sense of great beer-loving camaraderie washes over you as soon as you walk in the door. A couple years ago a complete stranger shared a $30 bottle of beer with me, so I was happy to pass on the favor by sharing my Pizza Port Old Viscosity with another complete stranger -- this is the kind of place that inspires you to do things like that. And thereís nothing more to say about the selection than that itís simply amazing -- the best anywhere. All the bartenders are knowledgable and efficient.

The best pub Iīve been to in my whole life! Draft selection is out of this world and the bottle collection outstanding, some great vintage beers also! Best sandwiches Iīve tasted and the staff knew alot about beer, and it didnt hurt that the female staff was very good looking! Anyway, the best pub Iīve been to by far

One of the best beer joints Iíve ever been too! Great atmosphere. Place is very small which cuts down on the ability to speak with the staff. But the atmosphere is very local and the beer offering is the best.
We chose the grilled cheese to tide us over until our next stop. Very good!
I recommend this to anyone from out of town looking to take in some City life along with a great beer!

I was in New York one night this week for work, and the amount I heard about this place made it totally necessary I stop in at the Blind Tiger, and I was very pleased I did.
This place lives up to its billing. It seems that every vertical surface in the bar was covered with the barís offerings, they had a ton of selection. And since I live in the mid-west, there were many beers I hadnít seen before, which made the selection seem that much bigger.
I visited late on a Wednesday, and I was amazed to see how packed the place was. This was regretable, and I wished I could have had a conversation with the staff beyond some shouting. The place is also smaller physically than I thought it would be, but there is a lot of beer packed into a small space!
These criticisms aside, I canít say anything other than that this place is a canít miss. The next time I revisit NYC, I will be back...hopefully during the day when the atmosphere is a bit more conducive to sitting, chatting, thinking, and rating.
