Great place. I felt at home the minute I step in. Great crowd in great bar. Very friendly and open to beer raters. Great beer line up at reasonable prices. One of best beer bars I ve been to.

Every time Ive been here it has been ridiculously overcrowded. The space is small and too much room is taken up with tables. This is the biggest drawback. That being said, this place is exceptional in offering plenty of obscure and hard to get brews. Very friendly staff. Considered to be the best in Manhattan by several, I disagree and have to give that title to RnH.

Extremely crowded, and the corner we were stuck in smelled of absolute death the entire time.... so much that I couldnít even smell the beers we were drinking. Service was slow, but again it was very crowded. Selection was very good, alot of Bruery beers on tap at the time. Would like to go again to rerate.

Stopped here yesterday after arriving in the city for the Phils/Yankees game. This was my second visit here, and Iím very impressed with the place. I enjoyed a Bourbon county stout and Weyerbacher Echo which were each on draft. The beer selection was excellent, with a solid tap roster, and dozens of bottled craft beers. I ordered the grilled cheese/tomato soup combo, which was very tasty. The bartender was tremendous, despite a fairly big crowd, he really went out of the way to talk beer with his customers and offer food/beer matching suggestions. Iíve beer to a lot of great beer bars in NYC, but this is by far my favorite.

Like one of the previous posters, we showed up on Wednesday at around happy hour. Every table was full and most of the open areas were filled with people standing. The front windows were opened up, so the nice afternoon air that blew in was refreshing. It was Heíbrew night at the bar, and there were many of their less common beers on draft. This was great, but I wouldíve preferred to go on an average night to have a wider variety of brew on tap. The place seemed very small due to the huge crowd there. We were there for several hours, and although the crowd turned over quite a bit, the number of people never really dwindled down. However, the service was very good and it never really took too long to get a beer. The beer was quite expensive. Overall, this place had a really cool vibe and I would love to go on an average night when it might be a little less crowded. Although, we heard someone mention that it is always crazy there.

Nice pub atmosphere. Conveniently located near all transportation. The service was good, the bartenders were friendly and attentive. The menu had a nice, varied selection. The beer selection is outrageous; a nice mix of maybe 30 draughts, 3-5 casks, and numerous bottles. Lots of unusual beers served here. Great place.

Years ago. Small place with a hellava good selection. Not exactly well priced but for the rarity like BA Old Salty and Cuvee de Castleton it canít be beat. I grabbed 2 bottles of Castleton and had a pint of their double IPA.

Went on a Wednesday which I didnít realize was brewery special night. The night I went the featured brewer was magic hat. They had a ton of stuff Iíd never seen from that brewery before which was cool. After I spent about 5 minutes wading through NYC hipsters to get to the bar, the bartender was great about catching my eye, getting my order and getting the beer. There were only two bartenders helping about 75-90 patrons and they did a great job. Beer selection was really nice, prices were decent, but it was crowded almost beyond comfort.

Great spot around the corner from alot of other places to duck in and out of. This is the place to have a beer though. A good glass of beer. An excellent glass of beer too. Itís all there. From good to the best around right there. It gets crowded though and best times are early.

Great selection, OK prices, small and crowded, but its NYC so what do you expect. Didnít try the food, though some looked good. <br.> 5/13 Update:Was just randomly looking through my reviews, and saw this old one from BT. This is the problem with rating on a first visit, I was way off! Blind Tiger is now my favorite beer bar in the city, and I go there all the time. First off, the food is really good, so we can update that. Secondly, yes it is always packed, but if you can find a time to go where its less then a zoo, it is a great place to drink. The bartenders are really good, they know beer, and theyíll treat you well if your hanging out and its not too packed. Lastly, on the selection, they get some really cool stuff here despite not having a huge list. Iím rarely disappointed by what is available. Recommended for an afternoon visit to keep the crowds down a bit.

Hell of a beer bar. Huge tap selection, lots of good East coast stuff. Solid bottle list too, lots of fairly hard-to-find Belgians (had a Struise Pannepot there). Nice atmosphere, almost a cabin-like feel inside, although because itís Manhattan, it can get a little crowded of course. Prices are not bad for the area. Oh yeah, the food is awesome too. There is some really crazy stuff on the menu.
