This is the NYC bar chain whose phone number is (212) 979-BEER. And its patrons--mostly tourists, sports hounds, and weathered locals--demand lots of it. Within the brick-lined interior of the Pourhouse, a bevy of projection screens and plasmas display the latest sports outing in unison, like Best Buy's TV department; this sports-centric layout is complemented by the beers on tap, with a range of Bud Light alternatives for traditionalists, plus Sixpoint's creamy Sweet Action Ale for the pickier sort. Also notable is the inexplicably named selection of shots, which ranges from the orange-liqueur-based "Brass Balls" to the rum-centric "Surfer on Acid" to, uh, "Spongebob." That last one's a surprise.
