i don't know how far away it is, but when I was in NYC last christmas, some local friends took me to The Pony Bar, which always has a nice selection of american craft brew on tap. And only $5 a pop, which is a steal in NYC from what I hear. I think it's in Manhattan in the old hell's kitchen area.

thanks for all quick responses. I am definitely going to hit up Brooklyn Brewery and now Sixpoint. sounds like Blind Tiger is on the list as well. how is Heartland Brewery? looks like they have several locations in NY.

To clarify, you'll have to find sixpoint at local bars (shouldn't be hard) - I don't think they have a tasting room at the brewery.

Hearland is... Heartland. A few good beers on tap, I like the Oatmeal Stout. Kind of gimmicky though and the food is pretty bland and that's putting it charitably.

I wouldn't bother. Better to go to a bar that has great taps than this brew pub. Its $7 a pint and the food is expensive and not worth it The seasonal's are good but the regular offerings are just ok.

If you're a geek like me look at this website
http://www.beermenus.com/

You can search by beer name and they also list beer events in the city.

Check out these as well:

BXL (43rd street is better location for tourism) - Belgian Beer and Food
Petite Abeille - Belgian Beer and Food
Peculiar Pub - In the village which is always crazy. 22 on tap. over 300 in bottles.
House of Brews - on restaurant row (46th) near theater district/times square

My favorite business in the world.

This right here is the only thing that makes me sad I moved out of Brooklyn.

Ok, cool. I just saw that heartland had several locations but it sounds like its more of a restaurant that happens to brew beer. it sounds like another Bj's. I would rather stick to places that are more unique and have good beer.

You have to go to McSorelys for the history of it. Like said before. Beers are light and dark and ordered two at a time. Neither is mind blowing, but they're good enough and the place is just cool!!

and less than a block down from McSorleys is Burp Castle, run by the brewist monks. They always have something interesting on tap and a huge selection of bottled beers in their cellar which have to be specially sent up.

Don't bother with Heartland, they don't even brew their own beer anymore, lame. And it was never very good to begin with. Chelsea Brewing Co at Chelsea Piers is pretty cool, good beer, decent food, can sit outside on the river etc, but you can get their beer at Bierkraft and other good beer bars mentioned above.
