Yes folks it's back and thank god, I really missed it, still in my father's neighborhood, making regular visits a reality. Only about a 5 minute walk from the old place (now housing a Starbucks!) Bathrooms are much nicer, they serve food, they have many more windows looking out and opening out when weather permits onto one of the classic Village street scenes, they even have a small outdoor eating, and drinking(?) area, this location is in the middle of a bunch of great food places including Murray's fine cheese shop and John's world class pizza across the street. (No slices) Great selections of all the types of beer you have come to expect from Alan, Dave and the crew, and the special beer events we have come to love! On my most recent visit, I enjoyed fresh Rogue 10,000. They had selections from Ommegang, Sixpoint, Captain Lawrence, Southampton, Smutty, Brooklyn's Antwerpin, Stone, Victory, Stoudt's, Southern Tier, and several others. 2 casks and a gravity keg resting on the bar. Expect to find the most interesting selections in the city (along with Ginger man and Hop Devil). Lots of rotation of the taps and beers you will not find in many places. Also an extensive and highly worthy bottle list.A must hit location if in the general NYC area. Welcome back BTAH, here's to MANY visits and years of enjoyment...

What a place. It is finally nice to be able to get to the new Blind Tiger in its new incarnation with beer...finally. I headed here tonight, the first night they were really open. I got there at 5pm and holey hell, they were busy. I was able to get to the bar and get a drink in a few minutes. Before I was able to order a beer, they opened a bottle (3 litre) of Victory 10 Year Alt, what a treat. It was given out to the bar and shared. What a great treat. I then ordered a beer...and then another and them another. what a great vibe in the bar. Everyone was friendly...met a few BA's and same some other industry folks from NY breweries. I was visited for work but will definitely get here again and again. I missed the first incarnation of the BT but will be sure to make it here again and again.

the location is great, open air windows that can be opened to given ventilation and air to the bar and the seating and bar area is really cool. The bar is an L shape starting on the right when you walk in and going back to the left. The beer and food menus are on the wall. There was a great selection of bottles, drafts and casks. I tried a bit of all.

Not that this has anything to do with the beer or food but the hand dryers in the bathrooms (WC's) are super high power and dry you really quick. Nice touch. Go here. You will have fun and drink good beer.
