I went to the Thirsty Bear restaurant with a group of 8 friends. This is a great place to go with a large group. We ordered three paellas and several tapas. All the food was good, but I was mostly interested in the beer. Apparently they keep seven "regular" beers on tap (though these apparently rotate from time to time, too) in addition to a couple seasonal offerings. Though I wasn't there on a Tuesday, I understand that every Tuesday night they have a beer on cask.

I tried all the beers. All the regular beers were good. They had a vanilla beer that was unique, interesting, and good. Their website advertised an amber ale on nitro; they didn't have it, but they did have an ESB on nitro and it was very nice. I hadn't ever heard of anything but a stout being nitrogenated, so I was very interested and definitely pleased. The IPA and the stout really stood out though. Both were excellent. I had a 20 oz glass of the stout. One friend (a homebrewer) had two rounds of the IPA and was very impressed. Another friend had the ESB and also really loved it.

If you are ever in the Union Square area and looking for a place to get good beer, I heartily recommend Thirsty Bear.
