The Hop Devil Grill bright and light compared to all the old dark beer bars of the East Village with a storefront that opens to the sidewalk, light-colored wood interior, and about 20 taps mounted on shiny diamond-plate steel. Only open about a month, the impressive list of taps, along with dozens of bottles, are listed on a chalkboard overhead. It's kill-the-keg night where Ithaca Smoked Porter can be had for $3 a pint. I can't resist, and order one.

The friendly bartender offers a taste of any beer you're interested in trying... just a sip or two in a shotglass... a nice touch before taking a chance on a whole pint of something new. They have a couple of great barleywines, but after taking a taste, I realize that a high-alcohol beer (10% or more) isn't the best choice for the end of a pub-crawl. He continues to rave about Stone Arrogant Bastard, so I go ahead and order one, and am certainly not disappointed. When my pint is nearly empty, he takes the glass and refills it saying it's on the house. Can't complain about a free beer!

All in all, a great new beer destination in a neighborhood that already has a few to begin with. Where it lacks in history & dust, it more than makes up for with great selection & great service. I'll certainly be back, and maybe try the food next time.

Went on the Grand Opening night, this past Thursday. Draught selection was very good, with some classic and some more interesting selections - Hop devil (of course), delerium tremens, a few German beers, two different victory stouts, etc. The bottle selection had some impressive selections, although the Stone Vertical Epic listed on the board was not on the menu, so I only saw it as I left. Food was fine for pub food, if a little pricy for the neighborhood. There was also someone there doing promo for some new whiskeys, rum, and Starbucks liquour, which was cool. Great decorations of beer signs, mirrors, etc. They seemed to be doing good business, and the service was generally good. A welcome addition to the NYC beer scene - hope they do well!
