If you like sours, you surely already know about Spuyten Duyvil. There's simply nowhere else like it in NYC.
The bar is very unimposing from the street and quite easy to walk past. During peak social hours, its front door is often blocked by the hoards of people waiting in line at popular Knitting Factory club next door. Make your way past them and into sour beer heaven!
Interior is rustic and hipster-rific. Bar is long with more seats than you'd expect. Food options are charcuterie and cheese platters.
Bar has 5 or 6 taps which rotate frequently, plus a cask. Extensive bottle list with many rare sours. Overall tap & bottle selection is incredible, but you'll pay for the privilege of being able to order an '06 Lou Pepe.
Bottles of Cantillon, Hanssens, and similar are regularly $40-$60 for 750mL, $20-30 for 375mL. Draft pours are ~12oz and typically run $7-$9. BGBrunch on tap at the Mikkeller event earlier this year was either $10 or $12. As stated, this bar's selection is unequaled in the city, but you do pay for this luxury.
That said, I really like Spuyten Duyvil and try to stop by every month or so.

Great place to grab a beer in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. They carry a very extensive selection of international/import craft beer. I don't recall there being much of an American craft beer selection, but that's not a bad thing. The garden out back is a great place to hang out. The inside is a small space so it can be hard to find a place to sit or even stand in the colder season. Overall, a great beer bar.
