Was in NY City to wander about about soak up atmosphere , eat and find beer. Read about Pony bar on beer advocate and took a walk to find it on 4.9.12 . Well worth the journey. Maybe 15 or 20 minute walk from times square.
When you walk in the electronic score board of beer on tap, the clock set at 4:20 and the old picture of Neil Young set the atmosphere. Sparse on seating, old wooden kegs for tables.
But here is where you come to sample beer & meet the neighbors.
The menu is sparse but the turkey chile and pretzels are tasty
But here is beer . Belly up to the bar ck scoreboard and order.
All beer is $5 yep every beer. The size of your glass changes but the beer is there.
The scoreboard flashes and bells ring when the beer changes
Night I was there there was Oskar blues pilsner, hills Edward a pale ale, a mix of new York beers. Overall a very good selection of beer and a knowledge staff

Not a ton of taps (~20), but everything on tap was stuff you don't see at any other bar. Went on a Saturday night and it wasn't packed, but most seats were taken. Best part was all beers were $6. Great beer and it only cost $6!?! They also had two TVs playing the world cup! You wouldn't think that is all that impressive, but most "Craft beer" bars tend to ditch the TVs to promote conversation, but I enjoy my conversations with the game on in the background while I drink great beer. I'm going to make it a point to stop at the Pony Bar every time I hit the city.
