Blind Tiger Alehouse
New York, NY 10014
Village Voice's Description
You don't come to the Blind Tiger to drink Corona or Heineken. Frequenters of this cherished West Village bar don't even come here to get drunk--they attend, as one customer so aptly described it, "to drink beer that tastes like beer." This means trying a light and inoffensive Smuttynose Pilsner, or splurging on a rarity craft beer, like a $20 bottle of Dogfish Worldwide Stout. And though it is often regarded as the city's best beer bar, the Blind Tiger has a modest wooden exterior and book-filled interior that suggests something far more homely... until you spot the stupefyingly extensive selection, which takes multiple chalkboards to list.
Tips from foursquare
More than 50 beers by the bottle and 28 on tap. Craft, imported, Trappist. Don't bother asking for Bud Light here.

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 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.
