One of the top places to go in NYC. Though it looks small from the outside, within is a beer haven, with a good deal of taps and bottles. Specialty nights on many Wednesdays throughout the year make this the place to go to try new beers on tap. Only drawback is that the place gets very crowded, very quickly. The food here is great, from ordering just a side of pickles, to a grilled cheese with tomato soup, or even a quesadilla. If you don’t like large crowds, you’d probably want to go here any time that’s not Wednesday or late on the weekends.
This place is a mecca for beer lovers. It is a very unassuming corner pub from the outside. It has an old time tavern kind of feel, dark wood walls, small tables, very cozy. There are more beers than one can count. The staff is friendly and helpful. If I lived in New York City, I would be a regular. I guess I will just have to settle for a trip every couple months.
This is an awesome bar. A bunch of taps, which usually include some relatively rare and awesome beers (RR Beatification!!!). Special events roughly every Wednesday which are very good and usually worth it to attend (free bread and cheese too). I’ve never had to use the bottle list, but it’s pretty impressive too. They always have a couple beers on cask and one on gravity keg, which is neat. The only thing I don’t like about BT is that every time I’ve been there it has been super crowded, sometimes with no seats available. So get there early, if you can. Prices are variable, but usually aren’t bad. It’s quite close to Penn Station, so if you’re in NYC, it’s definitely worth going to. Probably my 2nd favorite bar in NYC. Their tap list is updated at least weekly too, so check it out!
The large selection of quality draught beer and knowledgeable bartenders made this my favorite stop while I was in NYC, and the laid back atmosphere will ensure I come back next time I’m in the city. Had a couple cask offerings as well as a gravity pour. Food was tasty, also. The bottle list was pretty extensive, as well. My favorite New York City beer bar.
A very good selection of fine beers. get a load of the blackboard with prices like so much bullshit... clearly the neveau riche have taken over.yet, they don’t take credit cards unless you go over $25. i suppose that won’t take long. the place is small mostly old station wagon panel type wood and nothing to brag about and actually a bit cramped like a tiki bar. $1 OFF during happy hour which did run most of the afternoon into evening. i used to really like the old place, and hope this place can resemble it more as time goes bye. first time i ever felt intimidated to even ask for a sample.
stopped in twice over a weekend in NYC. Quite busy with younger 25-30 crowd. Loaded up on Sly Fox taps about 10 or so. Pretty good selection. Bottle list looked quite impressive. No booze so I had only one Victory St Boisterous one day & Sly Fox Grisette. Good place
Visited on 4th of July. Excellent tap and bottle selection, plus a selection of vintage beers. Had the deviled eggs app and thought it was tasty. Nice pub atmosphere that is not too cramped, but I am sure it must get really busy at night. Bartender was by herself and not the warmest person, but poured the beers quickly. I am glad I don’t live in NYC anymore, because I would be spending a lot of time here. Great place.
Visited this place right after a Smuttynose tasting. Many rare offerings from this brewery. Nice old style bar. Staff was knowledgeable for the most part. Don’t try them all and try to make it back to Brooklyn on the subway!
A long time favorite in the Village. Seems to have really taken off in their new location, as finding a spot can be a real headache after about 5. Arrive early and have a chat with Alan, he’s a great guy. Wednesdays are often enhanced by the addition fo some rare beers by a guest brewer. Great beers, good food, nice people, and right across the street from John’s Pizza, what’s not to like?
