Tucked into the no-man’s-land between the Upper East Side and Spanish Harlem, this craft-beer cubbyhole has the sort of community-hub vibe that makes you want to settle in and become part of the furniture. The well-priced suds (including rotating craft brews and cheap cans of Genny Light) and slapdash setup appeal to a neighborhood crowd, but it's chef Corey Cova's madcap bar food that makes it destinationworthy. The Momofuku Ssäm Bar alum is a comfort-food savant, deploying local curds in a variety of kitchen-sink creations. Try the NY State Cheddar—a grilled cheese featuring an unstoppable combo of braised pork belly, fried egg and house-made kimchi—or dig into an Eggo waffle topped with coffee-cured bacon, reduced maple syrup, aged cheddar and grilled foie gras.

This is a really great small place for some fun, friendly entertainment. Earl's has some great craft brews and they are always changing and the famous beer cheese is out of this world delicious!
Earl's Beer and Cheese is awesome! But come hungry because you get a TON of food. The location increased in size and now has a back seating area with board games. You have to get the beer cheese which comes with THICK slices of bread and fresh garlic to rub on it. The Cuban reuben is also delicious. Grab a craft beer and chow down my friends!
