Heading up to NYC August 26-30th where to go!?
 
I saw a thread back in 2007-2009 about places to go in NYC, but nothing new since then. So HBT, where should I go? I've never been to NYC so I'm looking to find some delicious brews and a good atmosphere! :mug:

Good beer nyc- 6 taps but 300 or so reatil. Rattle n hum. Gingerman. Whole foods in the Bowery- retail
Stay away from Chelsea Brewing Company; took a tour and the brewery is digustingly dirty.

I put together this google map of my favorite beer bars in NYC. I keep a link to it on my iphone so I can reference it when I'm out. Descriptions of each place are on the left side of the map:

Definitely try to go to Brooklyn Brewery. Chelsea is only so-so. If looking for lunch, Heartland is ok, but I'd skip them for dinner. Burp Castle and McSorley's are nice little bars too. Gingerman is the most taps in the city I believe.

No problem. How long will you be in town?

I would stay away from the heartland in union square; my wife and i both got food poisoning there a couple months ago...and we did not eat the same things either.

I cannot stress it enough, stay away from Chelsea Brewing Co. They use kitty litter tubs for their blow off tubes. I know its just a blow off, but c'mon, homedepot buckets are only $5 even in NYC. Drain flies in both the bar and the brewery.

As stated above, definitely go to the Brooklyn Brewery!!
Also, a few others i missed :
The Blind Tiger
Bohemian Beer Hall (Astoria Queens)
Pony Bar
Sunswick (Asotira, Queens)

There's a great beer bar, Valhalla on 54th and 9th? Also, down the street there's Brickhouse which has great burgers.

Where are you staying?

Staying at the W in upper east or something not sure off the top of my head. The little woman and do got Dave Matthews caravan tix and since there aren't any good bands that come on until R pm Friday and Saturday we are going to have to find something to do ;)
