Was in the city and had some time to pass in the early afternoon and with the weather being north of 90, I figured why not cool off with a pint or a few so I headed over to Blind Tiger. Was pretty shocked to find the place bumping at around 1p, but it was a Friday in summer. I grabbed one of the two available seats at the bar and had a few drinks. I had decided to stop there since their beermenus page said that they had smuttynose's Brett & I on tap and it was updated 2 days ago. Was pretty bummed to find out that Brett & I had kicked the night it was added, which happened to be a smuttynose event so plenty of cool smuttynose one offs and oddities both on tap and on cask. Also was pleasantly surprised to get a chance to try a Kuhnhenn offering that I hadn't seen locally before. Plenty of other great standbys and lots of interesting offerings I could have easily sat there all day and night and tried tons of beers that were new to me. The service was excellent, being that I was at the bar and although semi busy, there were 3 bartenders serving it up. All brews were served in appropriate glassware and the staff knew their stuff. Prices were in line with my expecations for a bar in the city that serves up the goodies. The vibe was chill, but I could see this place packing out easily for an event, especially with the location. All in all, this is definitely one of the better spots in the city and I will be sure to add this to my list of must stops when in NYC.
