Set back from the foot traffic of touristy South Street Seaport, this sleek watering hole is a beer lover’s retort to the grapecentric Bin No. 220 across the road. Thankfully, the fancy wallpaper and reclaimed-wood tables doesn’t translate to inflated prices—most selections from the East Coast–leaning draft lineup (Flying Dog, Southern Tier) are fairly pegged at $6 each, while well-chosen craft cans (Oskar Blues Old Chub, 21st Amendment Back in Black) go for $5. It’s all rather civilized, until you find yourself at one of the four pour-your-own stations in the back—high-top tables with two beer taps that allow you to top off freely and track your consumption via an LED screen. With a chalk leaderboard glorifying the biggest boozers, it's tough to avoid to urge to go for broke.
