    If you only have time for one beer during your stay in the city, this is where you drink it. This sleek Danish Modern taproom boasts 21 handles that consistently pour the most sought after beer.

    Hands down, one of our favorite beer bars. The beer selection is impressive enough as it is, between the 21 on tap and the extensive bottled list, but the design of the space really steals the show.

    Evil twin beers on tap from the Mikkeller co-creator. Tasty Scandinavian bar food from a Noma chef. Get the bread, the rye will blow your mind.

    Great unique tap list, friendliest bartenders and lively vibe. Their food is great too. Bread, cheese, veggie plates. Definitely get some Evil Twin while you're here.

    Such amazing design! Every detail is considered by the HOME folks. Awesome selection of sour beers on tap served in wine glasses - order the bread (same as luksus) or roast beef sandwich

    One of the best beer bars in NYC. Run by the Evil Twin team. Try small pours of their house hits and save room for food - not your usual bar fare. Love the squash blossoms and fried chicken.

    Everything on the menu at beer-geek bar Torst is fantastic, and the Hot Dog ($12) is no exception. Try one of Torst's 21 beers on tap, but also practically a full meal in itself. Read more

    With a fantastic reclaimed wood interior, this lovely Danish pub is an attractive place to spend an evening. The massive selection of fantastic beer and good snacks don't hurt either.

    Love the Sunday roast, a delicious and welcome change from eggy brunch dishes. Keep an eye on the Facebook page for this week's meat.

    I want to dislike this place because the whole "beer in wine glasses" thing is stupid, but the beer selection is actually great and the staff are super wonderful.

    They have what you want. Tell what you are into and they will find a best one. They offer in 3 different sizes so why not start from smaller one to find your biggest love.

    The caol ila stout is like scotch in beer form; awesome. Also had a Flemish red that resembled Lambrusco. Definitely go for cheese/meat/pickle plate to accompany, with awesome dark bread made in-house

    Most of the 100-plus bottles fall into the $15–$30 range, and can climb upwards of $100 for highly prized vintages like a 2005 Fou’ Foune from Belgium’s Cantillon or De Dolle’s 2003 Dulle Teve Reserva Read more

    great beer, obviously. bartender is helpful when it comes to choosing. got a Belgian pale ale (war bird by pipeworks) and an American sour ale (purple prose by Grimm). both delicious

    Excellent selection of beers you've never tried or even heard of. Available in 5/8/14 oz pours, good for trying new things without getting completely destroyed. Two single occupancy unisex restrooms

    From the man behind Evil Twin Brewing, this temple to beer in Greenpoint soared RateBeer.com's rankings to become among the world's top beer bars within weeks of opening.

    Tap list changes frequently but the bar food is amazing and overlooked. The loaf of bread is worth every cent. There's a reason the restaurant in back has Michelin stars

    Awesome pub. Lots of Evil Twin on tap (for obvious reasons). Found a few other imports I didn't recommend, which was nice since Evil Twin has pretty good distribution. Got to try some new stuff

    Today I drank a beer called "Action & Adventure" (Grimm, NY) here. You may never have the chance to try it on draft, but it's a good description for this place. Wow.

    Wow. This place is legit. If you are into craft beer at all, make your way to this amazing bar. All the taps have individualized temperature controls. Serious stuff.

    Multiple interesting sounding beers on tap with fancy white marble decor and cider to appease even the non beer drinkers among us (ie me).

    If you're a craft beer person, looking for that beer you can never find, or just want to feel extra classy while having a beer, this is a great place for you... granted an 8oz draft starts at $6...

    Great for session drinking. Try 3-4 different beers in the 5oz size. Too many great options to stick to just one beer.

    Lot's of good, rare stuff, both domestic and imported craft. A lot Evil Twin brews, and other stuff from gypsy brewers like Stillwater, which makes sense give Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø's involvement.

    Try something new! And sit towards the front. The back is uncomfortably bleak because of the darkness and the minimalist decor. But the front is great!

    New bar by the guy behind Evil Twin Brewing and the guy who cooked at Noma and Momofuku. Could you ask for more? Notice the gradient tap handles and flux capacitor draft system.

    I felt the cheese plate, though satisfying, was not to my taste, but I prefer creamier cheeses than their selection. Beer was excellent, bread as well. Definitely coming back.
