Zagat: New York’s 10 Best Craft Beer Bars

This quiet Midtown East brew hall is tucked away behind the more typical Cornerstone Tavern – if you have trouble finding your  way, just look for the gigantic buck on the sign outside (its motto is “All American Craft Beer With the Deer”). The bar is a bit cozier than some of the more boisterous watering holes around town, making it perfect for some serious beer-breakdown discussion. You’re likely to find a lot of options that you’ve never tasted before, along with a showcase of excellent labels from local producers, including River Horse Brewery from  New Jersey and New York’s Ommegang. If you need help navigating the list, stop by on on of Brewery Nights, when the bar features an  abundance of beers from one maker.
