Looks like it was a college bar in another life. It was smelly and sporty, but that just added to its charm. Incredible draft and bottle selection. There were about 30 beers on tap and who knows how many in the bottle. The bottled beer list features a good number of vintage ales, (barley wines, thomas hardey's, etc) and great representation from around the world. It's location is a bit out of the way (Brooklyn) but perfect if you're heading out to the Brooklyn Brewery for a tour and a pint. (495 characters)

IMO this is the best bar in New York. Let's start with the selection. Around 30 on tap and another 50 or so in bottles (including vintage ales). Most beers are served in 20oz pints, and most of those are just $3.50 (Anchor Liberty, all Brooklyn's, Sierra Nevada Pale, etc.). Had Schneider Hefe which was $4.25 for 20oz!!! I haven't seen these prices anywhere, especially NY. My girlfriend had a few Lindeman's at $4.00 for 10oz. The bartender, Mike, gave us many free tastes and also bought us a round of Ayinger's........very nice gesture. Only had the nacho's, but even they were fantastic (maybe that's the Brooklyn Monster talking). I rank this number 1, slightly ahead of The Blind Tiger and d.b.a. Don't let the Brooklyn address fool you, it's only about 10 minutes from Union Square in Manhattan. I will be going back every chance I get. (844 characters)
