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 couldnít 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. Iím 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. Didnít 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, Iím sad I hadnít gotten myself to this place sooner and I will definitely be back in the near future.

Small, cramped bar a little bit too close to puzzlís house for my liking. Long bar with stools so close to the back wall, it gets quite claustrophobic. Tap list was quality over quantity. Only 10-15 taps. Listed on a back mirror with childrenís magnets. Nice stuff, but almost impossible to read from an angle. Taps including local breweries I had not heard of before, Aecht Schlenkerla Fastenbier, Thornbridge, smoked and sours. No food that I know of. Bartender was nice, but oddly was convinced that Aecht Schlenkerla Fastenbier was bottled. I asked to see this bottle and it was Glazen Toren Lentebier. Um.. Pretty chill vibe, but wasnít blowing my mind after all day out at Torst. Clearly Iím spoiled.

Visited with Puzzl on a late Friday afternoon. This place is tiny, as Max mentioned, smallish table up front, then a long narrow bar. Towards the back, there is barely even enough space to get past the barstools to the bathroom. When I visited, there were the perfect amount of people present, though I can see where this could be a mess when busy. Tap list was really, really good - 11 taps of unique and well chosen beers. There were bottles available as well, though my attention really didnítí wander past the draft list. The bartender was a total pro, huge amount of beer knowledge, yet very respectful in the way he approached every customer. He geeked it out with me, then turned around and did a spot on "beer 101" explanation to help a newbie make a selection. Good music, great vibe, I absolutely loved this place. Must visit for visitors, must visit for locals (when they have some extra change in the pocket, this place is understandably pricey).

One of my favorite new-er places in the city. Pretty tiny with one 6-person table, a few window seats and then a bunch of stools at the bar. The tap list here is the most unique in NYC, outside of Torst. Theyíll typically have beers from Thornbridge and the B. United portfolio on tap, among others. Draft prices range anywhere from $6-12 and pours are typically in the 8-12 oz range. A bit pricy to be sure, but at the same time, you really wonít find these beers anywhere else on tap. Bartenders really know their stuff here and are pretty friendly. A must-visit for people visiting NYC.

An interesting addition to the NYC beer scene. Despite its name, which suggests a mainstream/blue collar profile, Proletariat is a narrow, comfortable bar that features a tap list aimed at the knowledgable imbiber. Thomas, the beverage manner, is friendly and knows a lot about beers. There arenít a ton of taps, but they carry a number of very unusual items and local brews, and the list changes constantly. Some reasonably priced offerings are interspersed with the expensive brews aimed at aficionados - but the prices are definitely on the high side. Still, this is an interesting spot and worth visiting.

The bar struck me as small, the bar is like a diner counter, with backless swivel stools. The service was excellent, with an attentive barkeep who knew what he was talking about when it came to beer, Limited number of taps, but always a very eclectic selection. Slightly pricey, but not ad for the part of Manhattan itís located in. Very good place overall.

Stopped in day after B United tasting to try some awesome barrel aged beers. The bartender was late showing up as i was opening the place but he was very pleasant and let me do a flight of 6 half pours of awesome brew which he didnít let anyone else do to rarity. Itís decorated like a tattoo parlor and is small and chill. Really interesting tap list and pours water out of OE 80 40ís which is funny. Definitely be back

Smanginí new place in the East Village. Reminds me a lot of Spuyten Duyvil in its selection. Only 10 taps, but theyíre all carefully picked and there is a lot of interesting stuff no matter when you stop by. A bit pricy, but you pay a premium for this kind of beer.
