Stopped by early on a Friday night. Very small place, maybe 12 seats at the bar, perhaps another 10 at tables and very little standing room. No food that I saw. The bartender looked at my wife and I and thought "noobs". Once we made contact with him and gave the right keyword, the service was great. If I could make one complaint, it would be that the service was TOO meticulous. All glasses are washed by swirling mineral water inside. I ordered a 12oz pour of Bunker Cypher and the keg kicked after pouring about 10oz and the bartender had to be convinced to serve it to me. Both the draft and bottle list are extremely well curated. If you’re seeking obscure and interesting items, you’ll find them here. Prices are in line with other NYC spots, which is to say pricey but you need to calibrate your thinking in the city. I will definitely go back.

Very much a quality over quantity type place. Selection will be obscure one-offs that you won’t find anywhere else, hard to find special releases, and a handful of great locals. Almost never a wasted tap line. Prices are a bit steep, but more often than not, you get what you’re paying for, and there’s always an $7 pint of something local if you don’t want to drop $10 on a 8 oz glass. Unfortunately, the space is cramped, so when it gets busy on weekends it can be a bit of a hassle. But overall, this is a great stop when you’re in NYC.

One of the best selections of any beer bar in NYC. Pricey, but quality over quantity. Bottles can be brutally expensive too (Spent $71 last night on two bottles). The bartenders are super friendly and knowledgable. When they do events, they are typically solid. Only complaint is how tight the bar can get. If you dont have a barstool and choose to stand at the bar, you’ll be moving every time someone has to pass to go to the restroom at the back end of the bar. All things considered, one of the strongest stops to make if youre looking for beer destinations in NYC.

Very decent spot down in the East Village. Quite a small bar so not a good place to be unless you have a seat. Nice range of beers, mostly American with some good NY locals, some Belgians. Friendly bartender. An alright bottle range. NYC prices. A good option in this part of town.

A small place offering a bar, stools and a fabulous selection of beer. Eclectic, kind of dark art deco interior, which fits the place remarkably well. With only 11 taps the selection is evidently limited in quantity compared to a lot of other places around the city, but when it comes to quality and limited releases they have very few competitors. One off’s and goodies from around the world, with frequent rotation. The bottle list is quite good as well, although not as impressive as the taps. Staff is extremely service minded and knowledgeable, and are very willing to talk about beer they serve, beer they should get a hold of and beer in general. The tap prices are quite decent, but the bottles tend to be somewhat overpriced. Definitely one off the must visit places in NY.

Small bar with nice tattoo themed decor all around. Definitely well-designed place. The beer is obscure, but expensive. The happy hour deals are some of the strangest that I have ever seen: 30% off select bottles(doesn’t make them any more affordable really...). Bartender (crew cut guy with tattoos) is chill and knows his beer. Worth visiting. Around the same price as Torst, more expensive than The Sampler in Bushwick. I’ll visit occasionally, but the prices will prevent this from ever being my go-to.

Tried to visit this past Sunday afternoon around 3PM but was closed till 5PM. We then discovered the Village Joker and hungout there (I just added this place...see the review). Luckily after hanging out there and having a Crif Dog next door...we managed to pass by again at maybe 5:20PM. I mention this because most of the seats were already taken 20 mins after they opened...so that should tell you something. We grabbed the last 2 seats at the bar and started marveling at the very high quality selection of unusual or less common beers. With some help from the great bartender we ended up selecting a couple of great brews. We couldn’t stay long but the place is pretty cool...small like others have mentioned...especially behind the bar stools. Eclectic decor..with.great music while I was there. You should definitely check this place out and give it more time than I could.

After trying to get here for months, I finally got to Proletariat on their first anniversary weekend. I was definitely impressed by this place. First and foremost by their selection. I’m not sure if it was because it was the anniversary celebration but they were doing by the glass pours of Cantillon, Cascade, Bruery, Hill Farmstead, etc. over the course of the weekend. The draft selection was about 12 different great choices. The emphasis here is quality over quantity and they have a terrific selection of hard to find beers here. As for service, the bartender that was there was very knowledgeable and friendly. Didn’t try the food but the small selection they had looked tasty. As for ambiance, this is a tiny place with a diner-like stools along a bar and a small front area with a table or two. Very cozy. Overall, I’m sad I hadn’t gotten myself to this place sooner and I will definitely be back in the near future.
