Visited on 2nd October 2017. Another small single roomed bar in the Bowery. This has seating along the bar a nd a couple of high tables. Decor is fairly smart and it's a nice dark little place. Another great beer list on tap. Found plenty of beer to interest me. Service friendly and prices good. One if the best place we visited in NYC.

Small place with about 10 seats and a 4 seater by the entrance. The rest is standing. Stools are fixed in place at the bar so they’re a little uncomfortable. Usually one or two persons on staff with 10-12 taps running at $7 or so a pint. Not a lot of food but plenty around in the neighborhood so no need to worry.

Quaint is the word that describes Proletariat best. The persistent darkness despite the sunshine outside, pushing to you to feel your way around towards the far corner, the number of beers on tap exceeding the number of stools at the bar (12), the simple lack of space are the trademarks of the place. The beer selection is always interesting, the prices are always high and the ambiance is more befitting a funeral home.

Dropped in early, the only ones at the bar. Great service, so friendly and knowledgeable. The selection was fantastic! We are big craft beer fans and came to NY for our honeymoon... We will definitely be back!

I haven't rated a place in years, but this place was so overrated that I wanted to weight in. The selection was just fine, the list was not too long not too short. The space was extremely small and cramped. Service was on the slower side. The music was loud and the selection was awful. I found the place underwhelming from the space to the decor, to the atmosphere. My experience was completed by being recommended an IPA from Other Half which I was told was "really really good" and actually has a 3.12 rating on RB and was straight bad.

Small, personable beer bar on St Marks Place. Not the largest selection in Manhattan but certainly nothing to balk at, and the selection is very well thought out. 12 keg taps and enough bottles and cans to arouse the interest. Not 100% sure that it’s noticeably superior enough to nearby craft beer bars to warrant the very high rate, but I certainly enjoyed my time here. The staff and customers are friendly, and the music has a good vibe. Good value considering the location.

Very cool place in East Village. Small but not tight. Taplist was impressive, not overly big but all good beers. A must visit when in NYC.

Visited Friday eve 13.5.16. Small place, rather dark, small bar. The two of us shared one seat in the corner. Small but knowledgeably curated tap list, with plenty of sour stuff and quite an unusual selection. Prices are very high, service is slow.
