Awesome! Great N/A Great Great

Establishment: Waterfront Ale House, New York, NY

Only a matter of time before the movie crowd filters into this place and packs it. Been in this location 4 years, and seems to specialize in Brooklyn beers (three on tap recently). Also a fine Young's (mumble) Stout, and Fuller's cask-conditioned (but no handpump). Fine tap selection numbering in the teens, and the bartender was very attentive to our needs. Will happily continue to return.

Establishment: John Harvard's Brew House, Lake Grove, NY

Waitresses (hi Britt!) super-friendly, and knowledgeable about the beers. Part of a chain, but you wouldn't know it from the quality beers they make. Skip the American Light -- it's for Bud drinkers -- and go for the Pale, Nut Brown and Porter/Stout (whichever they have) -- and be sure to try the cask porter, a personal favorite now! Very inexpensive as well.

Establishment: Brooklyn Brewery, Brooklyn, NY

Short hop over the East River, if you've ever enjoyed Brooklyn in bars you need to visit Happy Hour (6-10 on Fridays in summer, 6-9 winter?). Non-bottled beers are the stars, as the Blanche de Brooklyn and the Weisse are outstanding wheat varieties that don't pop up often in NYC bars. Looking forward to a winter visit for the Abbey and Monster Barleywine. And the beers go for just $2.50 a pint! A great deal!

Establishment: Heartland Brewery at Union Square, New York, NY

Steam beer they're featuring now (July 4 weekend) was good -- I've had limited exposure to the style, but it was quite drinkable and has a little hop bite to boot. Indiana Pale was excellent as usual, and Farmer John was in fine form as my dessert beer. Food is outstanding if a tad pricey.

Establishment: Carolina Brewing Company, Holly Springs, NC

The people running this place are great fun. The tour was of course informative and fun, but the beautiful part is self-serve beer before, during, and after the tour. Pour your own of any of the current stock (I recommend all their brews but especially the Nut Brown and Pale Ales, and the Spring Bock when in season) and chat with the genuinely nice folks who brew it. I hope to return to the brewery on my next jaunt through the Triangle, as it's really not far from Durham at all.

Establishment: Kinsale Tavern, New York, NY

Wasn't terribly impressed with my recent visit. Lots of taps but very uninspired choices. Lots of generic beers, apparently to placate the trendy masses. Stayed for one round then left for more interesting pastures downtown.

Establishment: Burp Castle, New York, NY

Still enjoy coming here because it has the largest array of Belgians on tap in the city. But for a more extensive Belgian bottled selection (with 6 taps), try Belgo, during the week, on Lafayette south of Astor Place -- about three blocks or so from Burp Castle. Eat and drink at Belgo's and wind up your evening with a glass or two of your favorite lambic at Burp castle. They mesh nicely that way.

Establishment: Liberty Steak House and Brewery, Myrtle Beach, SC

Best food I've had at Myrtle Beach. Although it's surrounded by trendoid "[insert name here] Cafes," I hope more tourists come here. Disappointed with the "Unfiltered Wheat" which didn't seem anything like that, but enjoyed the Nut Brown Ale, IPA, and "Nitro IPA," or a nitrogenated IPA, which added very little to it. Always a bunch of beers on tap, and well worth multiple visits, if you enjoy good beer with your dinner. Otherwise, just go to the touristy places and pay too much for a mediocre dining experience.

Establishment: Front Street Brewpub, Wilmington, NC

Visited FSB on a trip down South. While the food wasn't impressive, save for the cheese soup appetizer, the beers on tap were outstanding. Enjoyed the Dram Hill Scottish Ale -- very flavorful up front, with a nice finish, very highly hopped -- and the IPA wasn't bad, but my favorite for the day was the Bock, followed by a chocolate-malt heavy Irish Dry Stout.

Establishment: Greenwich Brewing Company, New York, NY

Only stopped in for a pitcher of the hefe-weizen with a few friends,but it was decent if not flavorful. A good beer for those who don't like beer taste (i.e., overly hopped). Prices about average for the city.

Closed in September, has reopened as "Session 73" or something like that, a jazz club that does not make its own beer. In case you're wondering.

Establishment: Ginger Man, New York, NY

Can't complain one iota about this place -- five bucks for an Imperial pint of Old Foghorn, or Salvator? Outstanding! The hand pumps generally serve up a fine selection, rotated every so often; my Brooklyn Brown was wonderful. The place looked like a frathouse bar when we walked in -- it's crowded most weeknights with after work people and it's hard to get the bartenders' attention. But it thins out eventually, and there are tables as the crowds disperse. Probably best to experience on a Saturday evening if you don't like heavy throngs. Worth multiple visits as the tap selection changes.

Establishment: Times Square Brewery, New York, NY

If you're by a window, this touristy place is bearable for lunch. Didn't have a hard time getting service, but the beer selection numbers four. Get a sampler. It'll pass the time while you wait for food, and the bock isn't bad if you're not judging it. The sandwiches are pretty good, though, and actually worth the price.

Establishment: Carnegie Hill Brewing Company, New York, NY

Beer selection doesn't vary often, but usually a few really good ones on tap. Food is typical American fare. The CPA and Daredevil Ale are fabulous (and, yes, bitter), and at four bucks a pint, a good buy. Usually noisy and crowded at night, but the bartenders are quick and helpful.

Establishment: Steve and Clark's Brewpub and Sausage Factory, Durham, NC

This one closed during the spring, I think. The sixth brewpub in the space, the Tobacco Roadhouse, is quite good, and opened quickly apparently because it kept the decor of Steve & Clark's, down to the tacky bathroom "murals". I think that will change, though. Anyhow, the new place is pretty good, and should be getting their brewing "license" soon.

FYI, the first 5 places there to be brewpubs were Weeping Radish (now brewing exclusively in Manteo, NC), Old Heidelberg, French Quarter, Bull City Brewery, and S&C's. Good luck, The -- odds aren't in their favor.

Establishment: Ruby's Taphouse, New York, NY

Very college hangout-y at night, but a wide tap selection of local breweries and some other interesting choices that of course rotate. No seating without eating, but haven't sampled the food menu. If you don't like the 18-25 crowd, you'll be disappointed Fridays and Saturdays, but otherwise a good place to go if you're in the area.

Establishment: Pete's Tavern, New York, NY

Good place to kick back on a weekday outside, people-watching and drinking a few Guinnesses or Pete's Ale. Decent food, can be slow but not a problem if you're drinking. Certainly better beer bars, but a good combination of food and beer here.

Establishment: North Star Pub, New York, NY

Hard to find fault here. The waitresses are super-friendly and a perfect fit for the English feel to the place. Eight taps most months, very little turnover but their bottle selection rotates. The food is great pub grub as well. Enjoy it weeknights, early, as seating is limited, unless you're there to enjoy a good English or Irish beer at the bar!

Establishment: Joe Allen, New York, NY

Fine pre-theater establishment (when I went). Apparently a celeb hangout as well. Several good beers to choose from, but the food is the star here. Upscale dining with a distinct possibility of finding a Paulaner on the list of drafts, among several others.

Establishment: d.b.a. (DBA), New York, NY

Love this place, despite the crowd. Excellent beer selection, though I wish the hand pumps could be used to better advantage (i.e., cask-conditioned ales nonstop). Nonetheless, always a fine selection. Occasionally they update the website (www.drinkgoodstuff.com), but you're always better off dropping in since you won't be disappointed.

Establishment: Burp Castle, New York, NY

Fabulous, famous for the serving attire. Wide selection of beers, most of which are different from Brewsky's on a given night. Almost distracting, the way the Monks won't actually talk unless it's absolutely necessary (and even then...). Must see to believe.

Establishment: Standings was Brewsky's, New York, NY

Fabulous bar (Burp Castle, next door, is owned by the same guy and is great also, in its own way). Joe, our bartender, talked with us the whole night. Very enjoyable to find knowledgeable hangouts! A definite must for anyone in New York who enjoys true beer.
