Stepping down the stairs into this cozy Midtown East bar, you might think—thanks to the dark wood, low lighting, and the flat screens tuned to soccer—that you’ve found another pub with heavily accented bartenders serving Newcastle on draft and shepherd’s pie by the plate-full. Well, you would be wrong … about the Newcastle: Stag’s Head only stocks beers from American breweries, including Other Half, Bell’s, Smuttynose and Greenpoint Beer & Ale Co.. On weekdays, happy hour is frequented by suits from neighborhood behemoths like Citigroup, while weekends tend to draw Turtle Bay residents. The beer selection changes often, and the bar updates its options on as they change, so domestic brew fans can get primed before heading over for a pint.
