Big bar with lots of seating - wouldn’t really pin this place to have draft offerings based on the feel, but each time we’ve gone they’ve always had atleast a couple solid beers worth getting. Decent daft selection - usually some regional offerings (victory, troeggs, Ny stuff), some cool stouts (Goose Island BC, Founders KBS) and some belgian stuff as well. The food is decent, although I havent ordered anything year in the past year.

comfy bar with lots of room. always a good list of domestic and imported craft beers. they’re always adding/rotating new stuff. if i lived closer, i’d go there more often. good spot to meet up with people.

Cool spot, like an authentic Irish pub with a bit of an urban twist. Bartender was great, 20ish taps although more than a few were taken up by not very interesting macros (Stella?). Brunch waffle was ok. I don’t know if I’d make this place a big destination spot, but I’d love for it to be my local!

Not the most exciting place in the city. I’d go a couple blocks north to the Jimmy’s/Burp Castle/Standings menage a trois. Decent selection, fun ambience, and a 100 year old bar or something.

Love the Swift. From a nice beer selection to a chance at a celebrity citing (William H. Macy anyone?) and a great ambiance, the Swift never dissapoints. Great bar for a beer on a cold winter’s night.

Nice little brown bar with a more-than-decent tap selection, even for New York. Everything I had was in superb shape and barman was prompt and friendly. They even serve a proper Pilsner Urquell, with the same level of foam as Czech pubs, and same freshness. They had great variety on the taps too, not just American, not just hoppy, strong and/or intense. All in all, a nice stop if you are in the area and feel like spending a cozy evening with quality brews.

One commenter said walking into this place is like transporting back in time 200 years and I see what they mean. This l,ae is narrow and dark and totally cool. The walls are full of exposed Brock and painted walls of old stuff. They have 25 taps and 30 or so bottles and most of it is of real quality. They have a nice mix of local, regional, national, and international craft. Prices are typical for the city but this is another great neighborhood spot.

Made a stop in here during a walk from the Blind Tiger to the Bowery Whole Foods. A somewhat dark place with some old wooden benches and tables and murals on the walls. Loads of old school character and fairly quiet. Not a giant selection, but lots of stuff that was worth drinking with a good number of local selections. Service was quick and attentive. I really liked this bar. I wish I could give more points for the ambiance; it was just such a pleasant place to stop and have a good beer.
