I visited this place after a friend told me about Parabola and KBS on tap here. They had a barrel-aged event the night before my visit and unfortunately were out of both Parabola and KBS. But still, a lot of goodies: Stone Espresso RIS, Goose Bourbon Coffee, Smuttynose Utopias, Harviestoun 21, Stone Mixtape Vol 4 and many others.
One Mile House was chill and super quiet when I visited on a Wednesday at 4pm. Weird location, hard by Chinatown and a lot of traffic. You would never expect such a quality beer bar on this stretch of Manhattan. I mean, sure, it is technically in the Bowery-LES-Nolita area, but far from the cool kids.
The space inside is simple, with a bar and some high-top tables, then another room for dining. They're going for a speakeasy feel, but it doesn't look cool enough (Death&Co it ain't).
30 taps and 45 bottles, with goodies and rarities for everyone and prices on par with the better bars in town ($7-$9 per glass, with some exceptions like the Harviestoun 21 that costs $14 per eight-ounce serving). They do flights as well.
I found service to be fine and knowledgeable, but of course the joint was practically empty when I visited. Their food menu is short and full of meat and fat, good to soak up all that fancy beer. I didn't try any grub but would go for those pork wings... interesting.

Located in lower Manhattan is this very good restaurant and craft beer bar. I had been hearing & reading some positive things about it for several months; and finally managed to visit it some weeks ago. The bar itself is long and seemed to wrap around to a 2nd side/room that I did not venture to, but the bartender would go back there from time to time as more of the taps are located on the other side. There are several tables in the back and waitstaff if you wish to eat lunch or dinner. We did not eat anything on our visit but from the looks of a couple patrons` plates, the food very well might be tasty here.
But, most importantly relative to this site, they had some great beer on draft. There were NY area breweries like Captain Lawrence, Barrier, Sixpoint and then things from all over the country like Local Option out of Chicago. I recall something like 18-20 taps with a well chosen range of styles. And the patrons and staff were both very friendly and talkative and made our afternoon visit all the more enjoyable. If you`re walking along Delancey or in the general area, this spot is recommended.

One of the least talked about places in the beer nerd community, I consider it something of a hidden gem.
The tap selection is consistently outstanding. In addition to almost always having several unique and excellent brews, they often have vintage and hard to find kegs. Two of the best tap lists I've ever seen have been at this bar!
Pricing is in line with NYC craft prices.
Food is top notch. The regular menu is extremely well done pub fare with unique items like bacon wrapped matzoh balls and pork wings. They often do special menus during events which highlight the brewery or style of the event.
Service has always been excellent, the owner takes very good care of me despite not being an extreme regular (I probably go twice a month on average). He is a gregarious fellow who is very passionate about getting great beer in the bar. The bartenders are all solid as well.
Atmosphere is classy Irish pub style. The old NYC newspapers lining the bathrooms are a fun touch, as are the photos of the Bowery area from early NYC history. The split bar makes it so that there's usually a space even if it gets crowded. And even after a Ballroom show lets out, it usually doesn't get so crowded that it's uncomfortable.
Overall, a really top notch beer bar with a great tap selection daily, and a world class tap selection for events. Also, probably the best food of any beer bar in the city. Highly recommended.
