Blind Tiger Ale House

After the Bohemian Hall and Beer Garden the next NYC beer destination was the fantastic Blind Tiger Ale House. I have already gone to this bar several times. My only complaint is that it can get quite crowded. What makes the bar great is that it has about 40 taps that change on a regular basis. They are often running promotions with a certain brewery, and sometimes have anywhere from 10-25 of the taps from a single brewery. Prices are reasonable($6-8) except if you want to get one of there overpriced bottles. A great place to come to something new on tap.

Bohemian Hall and Beer Garden

Its been quite some time since I posted last, and I could not possibly post all the beers I have tried in the interim. I have made the move from Philly to NYC, so there will be a shift towards NYC beer, and to start off I am going to review the Bohemian Hall and Beer Garden in Astoria.

On an early summer saturday afternoon the large outside area is packed with long benches of people drinking a small selection of Czech and German beer(mostly Czech). We sat down to eat indoors which limited the selection of beer offered. You can't beat pitchers of good beer for $15 alongside some farely tasty/authentic food. I didn't mistake the garden for Prague, but I think its as close as you get in NYC. I would definitely recomend this place especially for large groups of people.

Take the N to the second to last stop and keep walking in the same direction as the train along 31st street until you reach 24th avenue. You should be able to see the beer garden from the intersection.
