Popped in here in between trains the last couple of Fridays. The inside of Heartland brewery reeks chain. That said you would never know you were in New York. The place has a big bar and plenty of seating with tvs abound. The crowd struck me as a lot of business people and workers who were on their lunch break. The atmosphere is nothing that will win you over. The beer selection has five regular beers and four specialty taps. The beer is hit and miss. While the oatmeal stout blew me away, the honey porter was forgettable. I had a couple other beers there as well and it was very either much good or average. What does strike you is that pints—as well as everything else is expensive in New York. Most pints averaged $7 while seasonals were $7.50. I did try the food and had the mac and cheese. While small in size compared to most restaurants, this was very tasty. The chefs know what they are doing. I was also super impressed by the service. I sat by the bar and let the barkeep know I had a train to catch. Both times the plate was out quick and tasted great. He also answered all my questions about the beer. Heartland is certainly worth a stop, especially if you have a layover at Penn Station. Not the best brewery I have been to, but certainly not the worst.
