In Midtown East , there has not been a good beer bar that I can recall, so the Stag`s Head is an added welcome to the scene.
The atmosphere is relaxed, with some horns on the wall as goes with the name of the establishment. Antiques and a few books also sit on a shelf to one side, making it some cozy. Beer selection on tap included Allagash Curieux, DFH 90 Min, North Coast Red Seal, Pretty Things Jack D`Or, Fisherman`s Brew, Kelso Nut Brown, a couple others. Bottles included Brooklyn Local 1, other NY beers, Abita, Stone, Victory, and even a couple from Jolly Pumpkin. The staff, although not well versed in all of their beers when I visited, were very friendly and helpful. Food was average, may eat somewhere else nearby next time. But, I will certainly stop by again for a couple beers. For those of you who work in the area, be sure to stop when you have the chance.

Stag's Head is a great meet up place. The beer selection is fantastic, rotated frequently, with a dash of special events. The food here is top notch for bar food.

I recommend the buffalo wings with a side of the honey orange glaze (trust me), and the Turkey burger.

The great part about Stag's is that for the Sports enthusiast you can drag your great beer next door to Cornerstone which is their divey counterpart. It's connected to Stag's from the inside and you can walk between the two bars freely.

The only downside is that bartenders at Stag's tend to be a bit lazy, looking on their phones while you wait for a beer, and a little bit slow at times.

Having said that, its one of my favorite bars in midtown east.

The waiters are polite and attencious, but opposite to other places the person who claims to be the owner (Caroline or so) is a rabious dog. As other beer geeks from this site, I collect a picture of everything I drink, meaning bottles or the tap handler. I went to take pictures of those and the lady went nuts, saying that I could not do that, and she violently took it from my hand. I explained her what I did with those amateur pictures and gave her my name to check on the web. And asked why. She said "no, no, no, just no, no no!". I know NY is know for its awful service, but come on. You at least own some respect for who is bringing home your bacon!
