Long before craft entered the lexicon, there was Blind Tiger, one of the OGs of the New York beer scene. Since its arrival in 1995, Blind Tiger has achieved legendary status thanks to a meticulously curated program and some of the city's best bar food. The 28 taps ($6.50--$11), two casks and one gravity keg (usually $7), plus more than 80 bottles ($7--$55), make this the first port of call for brewhounds who want to track down pours they can't find anywhere else. Weekly events, including meet-the-brewer nights and frequent style showcases, help drinkers navigate the hunt.

One of my favorite beer bars in all of New York City. The wide selection of beers on draft are unparalleled. Each time I stop by, there's something new to try, and a helpful bartender to allow you to sample a beer before buying a pint. The bar is on the small size so it can get crowded quickly, but it's always a good mix of people looking to enjoy some rounds of craft beer.
Simply just one of the best... if not THE best... beer bars in the city. Blind Tiger's draught selection is so wide and so dynamic that you could go their every day and never drink the same thing twice (and that's not even touching upon their equally impressive bottle list). Beer snobs and amateurs alike are sure to find something they like on this menu. And if that's not enough, they're usually hiding even more options down in the cellar... all you have to do is ask.
Not to be overlooked (although super underrated) is Blind Tiger's food menu. Their grilled cheese puts your mom's version to shame (sorry mom) and even their kale salad manages to be decadent and delicious in its own right. Don't forget to stop by on Wednesdays too, when they feature rotating selections from nearby Murray's Cheese- FO' FREE. Just make sure you get there by 6.
