Small but interesting seasonal tap selection. The bartender was knowledgable. Had a nice little corner behind the bar. Decent acoustic music on a weeknight. Expensive, but not too out of line for Midtown.

Well lit and open feeling for what is not the largest space. Here during the after lunch time on a Tuesday, small crowd. A number of tvs, which when I came were showing the Little League World Series, Sportscenter, and CNN. Nice mix for the lunchtime crowd. Looked like 16 drafts (one was empty, I’d guess in preparation for their Southern Tier event the following night) on while I was here, ranging from the entry level stuff like Abita Turbodog and Lefthand Sawtooth to more interesting offerings like Southern Tier Pumking and Creme Brulee. There were a few harder to come by things, one-offs, generally from local brewers like Barrier, Chelsea, and Kelso. Overall a nice selection and mix of styles including a rauch, a few different stouts, some Belgian styles, and some lighter more accessible fare. Some of these are part of the lunch special (half a pint and a meal for $10). Happy hour seems to run a long time (11A-7P) and features specials on some of those more easily found beers. Credit card minimum is $20 which is good to know if you’re just swinging in for a single pint or so. Service was quick and friendly.

Standard wooden bar layout with loads of plasma screen TVs showing sport. I visited during the afternoon, but could imagine that this attracts a pretty ’bro’ clientele. My bartender was friendly enough. The selection was pretty good, with something like 15 beers available on tap. The list was well curated, and had beers to suit a range of tastes. Prices were fine. Overall, this is a nice place to sit out a rain storm, or visit if you’re in the area. As far as NYC goes, it doesn’t seem like a place to travel to get to. Still, nice.

Pretty standard Irish style pub and relaxed midtown vibe. Nice enough. Friendly attentive bar tenders and server. A 10 oz. of DFH Red & White was $8. The draught and draft list had a few gems like that, either uncommon or uncommon, local and not, on draft. Solid otherwise though not too big a list. They’ve been around and doing this for a while, relative to many other newcomers so have good events and good kegs.

Nice bar that does 4x6oz flights for $12. Many good local breweries on tap and a very good website that shows what currently is on tap.

Pleasant little bar in Midtown (East side). Knowledgeable and friendly bar tender. Dimly lit, younger crowd. Good beers on. Seemed pretty decent for the area (but I am an out of towner). Everything from a mild to Oak Aged Pumking. They do serve food, but I didn’t try any. Prices were decent. Sampling flight (4x6oz) available as well. Good stop.

Very cool bar with great deals next my midtown hotel. Was very surprised and happy to find this. Had a nice Lagunitas Imperial Stout on Cask. Later a Brooklyn Cascade. Well done.

decent place. 300 bottles and 16 taps. nice decor... sort of a clean, rustic mod feel. Prices seem expensive, though they have an extended happy hour with a few specials, so its not bad for mid-town. I’ll come back, but in a great beer city like NY, its not worth going out of the way for.

My new neighborhood hangout, best selection of beer in Midtown east. It has 4 and 5 dollar drafts of craft beer during happyhour. Beer events i was there for free allagash tasting and they had 8 allagash brews on tap and free food which was nice. there is an outside biergarten and is a block away from my apt. sweet

Solid bar and restaurant. They tend to have great stuff on tap and routinely hold brewery events, during which they often put out free munchies. The Stag’s Head also occasionally offers great deals on beers. I once got a Dogfish Head Worldwide Stout for $4.00! In 2010! I haven’t ordered food before but there seems to be some good things on the menu.
