A friend of mine lives not too far from The Jeffrey and keeps telling me about all the good beer on tap there, so I stopped by on a Thursday evening at around 5pm.
It is a cool space, in an unlikely location right across from the Queensboro Bridge (no views, though). This is the Upper East Side but the shitty part of it, so it's nice to have a good beer bar around. Very gastropubby inside: warmth, brick, wood, dim lights. A very narrow hallway behind the bar opens into a limited dining area out back, which is also connected to the cocktail bar on the other side. I like the architecture/layout here.
30 taps between front and back, good stuff for sure. They had a Captain Lawrence event so a lot of the taps were from there, including Frost Bite, Smoke from the Oak, Golden Delicious. Obscure brews from here and over the pond such as Hof Ten Dormal, Beer Geek Bacon, Schlenkerla Eiche, Del Ducato Baciani, Voodoo Gran Met...
Very expensive, great bartender with lovely smile and beer knowledge. This place is good. So much better than Alewife!
