Visited May 26, 2014.

This is basically an Irish bar but it’s got decent beer. During my visit they were doing a Dogfish Head event, or at least they had just finished one and there were still a lot of Dogfish beers on tap. That didn’t excite me all that much. They also had some Founders and some more local beers but over all it wasn’t an amazing tap list. That said, I did find something to enjoy. I also got a kick out of the Dogfish tap handle that is in sections that can be rotated to make different patterns, even if I didn’t want to drink the beer coming from that tap.

It might be worth noting that they have a patio on upstairs that is nice. You can sit outside and eat/drink in a slightly nicer atmosphere than a dingy bar.

Traditional bar in midtown. On my visit they had a Smuttynose event so the selection was heavy on their stuff and lacking much else. It’s still a friendly bar to hangout with a beer and I see their upcoming beers looks solid. This is the kind of bar that would be a great start for someone just getting into beer and willing to try different stuff. Pleasant experience overall.

Visited around mid day on the last Thursday of Feb ’12. The place never got too busy but there were a few folks in for lunch. Service was attentive and friendly. Beer selection was solid enough with a few out of state/non east coast offerings available. I liked this place and would head back if in the area, although not a destination pub in its own right.

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.

Visited late afternoon on a Thursday. Cool split level room, with a bar 1/2 floor down, and another room upstairs. The lower bar had 14 or so beers on tap, with a decent variety of locals and other solid craft options. Good friendly service. I had a beer, and the sliders. Both were solid, and I enjoyed my visit. There is nothing special about this place (craft beer wise), though I enjoyed spending time here.

70 = ★★½ (Locals should check it out, visitors with extended time)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

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.

Popped in here for a quick drink with a friend when I was in the neighborhood. Sort of a dark hidey-hole type of vibe with a short bar fronting a cozy divey looking place. A very well-curated tap list and some nice happy hour specials as well. We didn’t eat when we were here but quite enjoyed the pop in. Bartender was efficient - there aren’t a ton of options in this neighborhood but this is a great one.

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.

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.
