I would have to say 2A, on 2nd and A, and also Revival on 15th near irving plaza. Both are pretty cheap, and awesome vibes. Happy hour specials are pretty great too.

Wow, this is a loaded question...

Williamsburgh - Muggs Ale House (Bedford & 10th) - great selection of drafts, with really low prices, and a warm atmosphere. Probably my favorite place

Williamsburgh - Spuyten Duyvil (Metropolitan near Roebling) - hands down the best Belgian beer bar in NYC area! Also if/when you go get a cheese plate, they are always delicious!

Williamsburgh - Barcade (Union Ave just off BQE) - classic video games and craft brews (enough said).

They had a great Bartender who used to give every third pint for free. Man I miss that place.
My favorite is also closed; the old Red Rock West on 17th and 10th.

Now it depends on mood. For punk rock it's either Double Down or Three of Cups (on some nights). Beer Bar? Blind Tiger for day drinking but it's too crowded at night. Standings or Hop Devil depending on what's on tap.

George Keeley

I used to work at George Keeley for a while, and now and then go back to help out. It is located on 83rd & Amsterdam. They specialize in craft beer and have 22 taps going. They have a few staples, but most beers always rotate. The staff are great and the kitchen downstairs makes some great food. If anyone ever wants a brew, let me know.

On Fri and Sat nights they tend to get a lot of Jersey types but who can blame them for wanting to leave Jersey? The bartenders and wait staff are unchanged for the most part since I started going there almost 40 years ago!
The one time I tried going there I think it was a friday night and there was a large line out the door to get in. Is this typical on most nights of the week or are there slower nights to check it out?

All about Rattle N' Hum. It gets crowded and annoying at times, but the beer is great and they make the best goddamn onion rings EVER.

Blind Tiger NYC, hands down. Great beer selection and an attractive bartender (Kate the Great!)
Gingerman NYC - Mmmm.....Belgian beers (among many others)
Swig - Yay, local to work!

McSorley's is only a zoo on the weekends. There's always plenty of people in there at night but the lines to get in are only on Fri and Sat.

I visited New York City a few weeks back and thought McSourley's was really cool. I like the history behind the place, and the fact that its a presidential hangout spot; kinda neat. I also liked Flight 151 in Chelsea right by my hostel. Pretty quiet little sports bar.
