Overall, a really good bar for craft beer. Their prices for taps are very reasonable for NYC and they only have good taps available. They tend to get feature different breweries from around the world at various times, so it is good to pay attention to their website. The prices for bottles range from okay to absurdly over priced. However, they do have quite a good selection of high quality and hard to find bottles. The food is better than average and decently priced. Good ambiance and conveniently located near the train station.

My view of Rattle ’N’ Hum may be a bit colored by the fact that I went there late on a Friday night; it was hot, very noisy and crowded. Absolutely packed. However, I did get the chance to try some of their amazing beer selection, and it is impressive - from US craft breweries such as Hair of the Dog, Founders and Stone, to European ones like BrewDog, De Ranke and Nøgne Ø. Great selection but not the right atmosphere to enjoy beer, I didn’t even get the chance to ask the bartender but had to rely on the less informed girls running around taking orders. Beer by proxy has never been my thing.

This loud bar in Manhattan is a must for all beer geeks travelling to NYC. The tap menu has lots of brews one cannot find elsewhere in the state and the frequent events showcase some of these excellent brewers we don’t have access to in the east. The bottle menu is also very alluring, but the taps are so impressive, I don’t really see myself go for a bottle anytime soon. The food we had was quality pub grub, none of that usual generic ingredient mix many American places serve. This and Gingerman are absolute musts and can both be done on the same weekend since you’ll most likely find vastly different selections at each place.

Établissement visité le vendredi 2 avril vers 19h30. Ambiance: Bar ayant une thématique bière. Présence de téléviseurs sportits et de musique trop forte. L’endroit manque un peu d’aération car il y fait chaud. Service: Serviable, attentionné et connaisseur. Sélection: 40 excellents fûts avec une bonne sélection de bouteilles. Nourriture: Nous avons pris le poulet avec beurre au citron et le sandwich au rosbeef et chèvre. Le tout était succulent. (145e rating d’établissement)

Clearly, this place was designed for the hardcore beer geek and the crowd catered on a Saturday evening mostly seemed the beer geek type despite their inexplicable interest for sports on TV. Long and relatively narrow room with high ceilings and breweriana everywhere. Sports bar feel, but the beeriness of the place removes the unpleasantness that usually comes with Sports bars feel. While the seats are not very comfortable, many of them having no back (certainly no Gingerman in that regard) the place itself feels most welcoming and I could easily spend a whole evening there. The tap list changes quickly and is one of the best in NYC, often showcasing a particular brewer and including rarities that even locals would have a tough time to find. The bottle selection is solid, but chances are that you’ll find many interesting offerings on draught anyway. Excellent service, the manager walked by all the tables a few times to make sure everything was okay. They are sampler friendly with anything on the menu. And even on a Saturday, we immediately found a place to sit, that can be hard in New York. Rattle is a must.

Maybe my favorite beer bar in NYC. There is always a better than descent selection. Frequent cask events and a great owner. The staff has been totally hit or miss. Bar foods not bad. Definitely worth a stop if youre in the city. Expect Manhatten prices.

I’ve been here many times and at this point this establishment has fully hit its stride so here is my two cents. This is a great matrix of a classic NYC bar and a craft beer establishment. There is always a variety of beers available, from APAs to IPAs, to Stouts and Porters and Cask ales. No matter what style of beer you prefer there will always be something that you like and often something that you haven’t tried. They have redone the food menu several times and the food is above average for bar food. If you are a sports fan, they have several screens by the bar, and several large screens in the back seating area and the games are always on. They also have a full bar for your friends that are not beer geeks. They have really combined some important elements to make the place work. Atmosphere is very cool, service is fairly attentive, and the owner truly gives a crap, and works his ass off to make sure people are happy. Additionally they have some great events and get some great beers and brewers to come to their place.

Hidden on 33rd, it’s deceptively large... walk all the way back for the casks. Indoor feel with dim lighting and so many TVs and paraphernalia it could be a sports bar. Odd vibe overall. Decent service. Tap list is rather large but depressingly local or representing a large amount of beer from 1-2 breweries. The bottle list is considerably larger, even than Blind Tiger’s. That said, there wasn’t a lot on it that impressed immediately, though most styles were covered rather well. Flights of beer make it a bit cheaper. I didn’t have any food, but the menu seemed decent enough. There’s something frilly about this place, just can’t get into it.

"No Crap On Tap" is predominantly written on the large chalkboard wall to the left of the bar. This is my kind of place. Great tap selection across the board to satisfy any palate. The bartenders we had were knowledgeable and friendly. Prices are very reasonable considering the midtown location - for example I spent $7/pint on a Yuengling at a local bar and spent $8/ping on a Green Flash IPA at RNH. A must hit if you’re in the city and a beer snob.

I went to Rattle ’N’ Hum on Sat the first day of spring. My fiancé has been telling me how great this place was when she went. I was very very excited to go, but as a very well rounded beer drinker I’m not normally impressed by a selection it was no different here (I do know that it will change seasonal so I would have gone back anyway). But this time out I order a Rodenbach Grand Cru, I was told the keg kicked at that no one knows how to change it. Then I ordered a Southampton Double White it was flat so I went to the bar and told them she tried and told me that it was not. I now said that I didn’t want anything else and wanted my check. When the check come I was charged for the beer I didn’t drink and was told that ALL SALES ARE FINAL. So I paid my check and said goodbye to Rattle ’N’ Hum forever, also to tell everyone I know not to go there cause it was terrible. I hope you’re happy that a single server lost possibly many many customers forever.
