I spent a weekend in NYC and stopped by the Blind Tiger two times. First was during happy hour on a Friday so this place was packed wall to wall. The Blind Tiger is not that big in general so it was rough for a bit. They do offer happy hour prices which was unexpected and nice. Overall the beers usually run $5-$7 a pint which isn't too shabby considering it IS NYC and I am sure these beers are not THAT cheap in general. Service was pretty good, and fairly quick. They used the correct glasses for the beers which I am not used to. Selection constantly rotates and the website is updated to reflect this. Overall, the best bar I have ever been to.

Biggest selection of craft brew on tap I have ever seen. I had two imperial stouts after trying a few: Prairie Christmas BOMB! and Other Half: We've Been Out There In Orbit.

Cool place, wooden decor, good amount of seating. Friendly staff. I got the shrimp tacos which was one of the daily specials and I was impressed.

Overall a great place if you're looking for a large quantity and high quality selection of beer. Would recommend!

My wife and I stopped in here after lunch at a vegan place down the street. Not too large, dark wood, fire in the fireplace. Very comfortable.
28 beers on tap, including three from Hill Farmstead. Two cask offerings.
We sat at the bar and had a great conversation with the guy next to us.
Service was good.

Went here last summer and was very impressed with everything. They had a few Hill Farmstead beers on tap and a pretty good menu!
