"Great beer" and "Hell's Kitchen" are not typically phrases you'd find in the same sentence. Valhalla might be the only exception to that.

You might miss it at first because of the seemingly permanent scaffolding above the entrance but if you're a hop head and you're in the area (presumably on your way to Terminal 5), Valhalla is worth dropping by for a cold one.

When you combine the rotating draft list with the bottle selection, you're looking at a beer menu nearing almost 3 digits. Seasonal specials are intermingled with evergreen favorites like Allagash White and Left Hand Milk Stout. And for your friend who hasn't quite caught up to the idea of beer tasting good, they also have Bud and Bud Light. While there is no Happy Hour (technically), they do feature 2 drafts on special ($5) every day, all day long. 

And to soak it all up, Valhalla's food menu is very solid. You won't find anything fancy here, as they're definitely not trying to change the beer bar culinary game, but they do classics like nachos, sliders, and artichoke dip pretty darn well.
