    There's a reason that everyone in here is a regular customer. After your first, then second, then tenth time at the bar, you will be too. No shortage of beer (good beer) and wings at this awesome spot

    Solid spot for quality craft beer on tap with a huge selection. You can keep track of the beers you've tried; just ask the bartenders and you can create your own card for when you come back!

    See, I'd tell you what beer I like, but by the time you read this tip, the entire beer list will have changed, and that's how you know it's an awesome beer bar.

    My only complaint is the food is a little too good. I ate my own weight in wings, grilled cheese and tomato soup and anything else that I could annihilate, maybe someone's hand that got in the way.

    It's pouring outside so the fireplace was the obvious choice for our night out! Cozy up by the fire with a cold beer, what more to ask for on a cold night such as this?

    Nearly every Wednesday, this bar opens its taps to a single brewery with an epic list of mainstream and rare beers. Don't miss the food, either - especially the grilled cheese and tomato soup!

    One of our 10 best Manhattan bars- Beer buffs rejoice. Here is a place where everyone is as nerdy and psyched ab suds as you are. Clasp your hand on neighbor's back & drink to your healthy obsession.

    Blind Tiger is known for its craft beers, but enjoy one at 6 p.m. on a Wednesday and you'll also get free access to a selection of cheeses from Murray's Cheese Bar and fresh baguettes. Read more

    The ultimate place to stop by for a brew. The beer selection is pretty extensive, which makes deciding on just one to wash down the tasty food pretty challenging.

    If you've never had a cask beer, try it here. Fantastic beer selection, decent wine options and delish grilled cheese! Learn about cask beer & what the term "blind tiger" meant during prohibition.... Read more

    Great selection - the cask stuff is always more interesting. If you're lucky you might get some vintage stuff e.g. 2010 Dogfish head olde school. I like to chill by the fireplace.

    Great selection of craft beer. Inside is very cool and friendly atmosphere. Always come here when we come home and always drink too much and buy the same damn shirt. Love it

    My favorite bar to visit when I visit New York! Super cozy atmosphere, lots of great microbrews to choose from, and yummy food. The deviled eggs (yes!) and veggie chili were on point.

    More than 50 beers by the bottle and 28 on tap. Just make sure you know what you want, because the bartender is usually not to keen on helping you make up your mind.

    One of the best beers you can ask for is the Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout. The second is the Ommegang Abbey Ale. Pair either of these with the Charcuterie Plate, and you'll go home happy.

    You’ve got to be crazy to stand out in New York. Near fanatical. Like this place is about their beer—draught, aged, vintage, cask. Luckily the help on hand can keep you sane while you try to order.

    Murray's Cheese food and craft beers. An amazingly great mix. Often packed with limited seating but near the fireplace in the wintertime can be a great place to relax.

    This is a hot spot for day drinking. They have a great beer selection and they have grilled cheese with tomato soup which is one of my favorite lunch options.

    There's a secret drink called the Hurricane, invented during Sandy when they were rapidly trying to get rid of warming tap beer. Includes cider, slightly sweet and soo delicious

    A great bar on the best block in NYC. Beer is a no brainer with the amazing selection, but I've had some good glasses of wine by the fireplace too!

    Can't be in the West Village without a stop here. Awesome variety and selection of craft beer. Small place, so it gets crowded. Try to grab a spot at the bar.

    The BT in the winter next to the fireplace or in the summer next to an open window is one of my favorite places in the city. Great bartenders.

    Excellent and constantly changing craft beer list. The wings are great too. Can get crowded, but there is no shame sharing tables with strangers.

    Very famous beer bar with a good selection. With the fame comes large crowds, and that can be frustrating when you actually want to order one of the many beers on tap.

    Go on Wednesdays for the gratis cheese plate from murray's! But go early - they put it out right at happy hour and it disappears fast!

    Two day (Wed/Thu) Pacific Northwest Beer & Oyster Fest. $12 for a half-dozen from Yaquina Bay. 4 breweries represented across 15 taps ... Rogue, Gigantic, Ninkasi & Midnight Sun.

    Get some beer or super fresh-tasting cider and sit by the windows post-brunch. Friendly bartenders, but there can be a wait for a table.

    One of the best places in the Village to find your heart's desire of seasonal craft beers on tap; typically around 30 at a time!

    Tons of craft beer on tap and a cozy atmosphere. Love the bartenders too. If you're lucky, they'll offer up a free refill.

    Bartender gave me a "you better know what you want" vibe, rather than "I'm here to help." But I loved the beer list, and Google helped me decide.

    A must visit for beer folks. Try and go early when it's not so crowded. Don't be afraid to ask the bartenders for guidance.

    They have about 30 draft beers. Most of theese beers are from the US. Great place to try the best of american beer tradition.

    Awesome beer list and reasonable prices -- a rare find in the West Village! Super casual, would like to return for food eventually.

    I love this bar! You can grab a drink by the fire in the winter, or enjoy the open air feel of it in the summer. 🍻

    Come during the week and avoid the crowd at one of NYC's orginal beer bars. Their tap selection is constantly evolving and always top notch.

    Cozy bar, with great beer selection. Definitely ask for suggestions on beers to try. For food, try the grilled cheese.

    The Framboise Lambic is a must-try! I know I'm a bit late jumping on the train, but if you haven't tried, it tastes like raspberry juice--and it's alcoholic!

    One of the best craft beer selections in the city & extremely well-done upscale pub food. The old school grilled cheese is my standard, amazing with bacon. Order everything at the bar.
