After its beloved Hudson Street location was usurped by Starbucks, this premiere microbrewery built itself a new home using handsome woods salvaged from a 19th-century farmhouse. Predictably one-time "Tigerites" on the prowl are now cool cats sitting with their wives at cracked-wood tables near the stone hearth and under the copper fans. NYU newcomers, too, circle around beer-belly-level tables or settle for standing and calling out their favorites from an idiosyncratic list of 30 draft beers. You'll have no luck ordering a Bud: Even a Guinness seems boring in the face of a Rogue John John Hazlenut Brown, a Speakeasy Butchertown, rotating cask ales, or one of the small-batch, vintage beers (like Nogne O Peculiar Yule) touted on the chalkboard; a second board advertises small plates like deviled eggs, potato beer cheese soup, and sliders such as the Lamb Burgers with tzatziki and narissa on mini brioche buns.
Picnics with a view, roller-skating nostalgia, and a party for gay headbangers.
