New place in Midtown. Visited there in morning hours. Served by our local and friendly Ratebeerian - Deadgirl. Close to subway and touristy streets , also in close proximity to other good beer bars. Frequently organizing beer events. Good to see 4 beer samplers for 8-9 bucks. Good line up in friendly place. Still learning its craft but they moving in right direction. When in NY must visit spot.

Went in tonight with my girlfriend and a friend met us. Nice to have a cool bar with a good, if not pretty damn good beer list with 3, yes 3 casks, but prices were more or less high, but Iím not used to new york fucking $7 pints of lager, but whatevs. Food made my vegan girlfriend happy after my mishap finding a latish night place to eat. and the selection was cool and thematic. Also as a beer geek I respect the ability to get a flight of beer, as a ticker getting 4 4oz beers for the price of one 20 oz or 16oz beer is a nice treat, I always want to rate more and this place obliged that for me. Not too loud either, which is a nice change, but why is this is in midtown, it seems so oddly placed. I had sliders and they were good, 7 for $14 made me a full happy man.

WHAT A DISCOVERY! Long, narrow, beer-oriented venue with wood floor, woodpanelling to 4í-0" and a wooden bar. Subdued lighting. Pub well decorated with beer memorabilia, pump handles and illuminated signage. An area at the rear provides more space for diners. Credit and debit cards accepted. The bar was hosting EAST-WEST IPA CHALLENGE at the time of my visit of 28/07/2009. Very friendly staff (Sara served me all night) and regular drinkers at the bar, Justin, Kevin, Mike and Isaac provided for entertaining and humorous company throughout the session. All beers I supped were on good form, and the food represented good value for money. A good choice of music. This is an excellent venue, and I recommended wholeheartedly.

A very welcome addition to a growing number of beer bars in the city. Was beginning to think IPA in New York stood for In Perpetuity Absent. Not anymore. Small detail: the Google map has Rattle íNí Hum in Brooklyn. Itís on the other 33rd St...the one in Manhattan.

Place rating 111. Kind of stumbled on this place, my trip to NYC was not really a beer run kind of trip but I sure am glad that I found it. Nice atmosphere and very comfortable. Great number of taps with lots of local options and more than pleany outstanding beers from throughout the country. Prices reasonable and I would not consider them to be higher than any other bar of this caliber. Service staff helpful and friendly and were willing to give free samples. Option for ísampler platterí which makes it nice because of how many great beers are there.

First Experience: After reading about this beer bar in the BA NYC group and finding itís beer menu online, I decided to check it out with a beer buddy of mine. Itís location is great i.e. not to far from Penn Station I guess is helped that we went on a Sunday night because we got seats at the bar immediately. The bartender was happy to offer suggestions and any information he knew about the beers on the menu. The selection was great, with 50 or so taps. I had 4 pints the last of which was on the house. The beers I had were: Smuttynose Farmhouse,Bear Republic Big Bear Stout,Cask- Sixpoint Righteous Rye, Heíbrew Messiah Bold Oak Aged. All were delicious. I think I will make this one of my go to beer bars (amongst: Gingerman, Heartland, House of Brews, Blind Tiger, and Peculier). After many visits: After being impressed with my first visit to RNH. I went there again and again. As I got to know the staff (especially Patrick-the owner) I felt as if I was part of the "RNH family". Everytime I go there the bartenders and waitresses know my name and immediately start a tab for me. I recently completed the month of madness (40 styles in 30 days) and look forward to drinking great craft beer out of my own mug. What makes RNH so unique is all the events it has, I donít think there are many other NYC bars that put so much effort into supporting craft beer and spreading the "craft beer revolution".

Nothing bad to say about this place! Went during Elysian Brewery week, got several samplers and some food. The flights were very reasonably priced: 4, 4ozs for $7! The servers are easy on the eyes, friendly and attentive. The menus are well organized. And from what I can see they are always have some sort of event, and give out advanced notice. The look and feel of the place just makes you want to drink!

Nice and laid back atmosphere from the moment you walk in. Menus of beers arranged by style, then by location make it easy to sort through the impressive 40 taps and 4 or 5 casks. Sampler prices are pretty reasonable, especially given the location (I can think of a bar an hour north that charges $3 more for similar samplers with less stellar offerings). Iíll certainly be back.

Update based on some changes at RnH recently:
While Patrick continues to get a ton of great beer and improves the atmosphere by making it into a great place to watch sports games, and hosting more and more events, the prices have become a bit ludicrous. I get that itís NYC. I get that some things cost more than others. But with the latest bumps in prices many things are now 8oz pours for $8. A dollar an ounce. For things like say, a rare Cantillon, or a say a 12% aged barleywine, itís a pain in the ass, but understandable. But just a few days ago for their recent event Dieu du Cielís basic 5% session stout was commanding a dollar an ounce at $8 for an 8oz pour. Ridiculous. There were still slightly more budget friendly options (and the flights can provide a work around for this as you can get 4oz for essentially $3 as the íexpensiveí flight comes in at $12 for 4 3 or 4oz pours), but keep in mind that when events get busy, theyíll stop doing flights. So get there early, and bring your wallet.

Beer lovers heaven. Four casks, more bottles and taps than Iíve ever seen in one place. This place is on point. Well worth the visit whenever your in the city. Very Good value, especially in midtown Manhattan. You could easily go to a Fridays and run up a more expensive tab drinking bud light and heineken. What a win!!!

Nice place with a good selection of beers. About 30-40 beers on draught at all time and prices are fair for the location. Food was ok but nothing special. Got to try the double-bastard on draught which was a real treat! Will definitely visit this place again when in New York!
