4 Best Beer Spots in New York City - Go Visit NYC

 

1. Heartland Brewery & Chophouse

 

Located in the heart of Times Square, Heartland Brewery & Chophouse is one of the best steakhouses in New York City! Due to its central location, you can have a great meal before or after a Broadway show

The restaurant has an interesting atmosphere that includes pre-Prohibition beer artifacts. Some of the artifacts include beer trays, steins, and back-bar sculptures. There are three large, separate dining rooms for private parties and events.

All of their unique beers are to die for!  This includes:

Kolsch Lite: Pale yellow in color and tastes of Noble hops and German pilsner malt with a crisp finish.

Cornhusker Lager: Crisp and smooth, our golden lager is crafted from Midwestern malts and flaked sweet corn. This is our most refreshing beer, with a mellow maltiness and a light, clean finish.

Lavender Wheat: Belgian Style Wit that expresses the perfect balance of Hallertau hops, pilsner malt & wheat. This ale has a distinct aroma of freshly cultivated lavender, ginger & lemon. 

Along with world-class beers, Heartland Brewery has delicious food selections.

Some of their specialties include the N.Y Strip Steak Sandwich, the Heartland Buffalo Burger, the Buffalo Chicken Cobb Salad, and Sesame Seared Ahi Tuna.

The restaurant is located at 127 W 43rd St, New York, NY 10036.   You can check out their website.

“The most delicious veggie burger I’ve ever had.” – Deliciously Savvy.com

“The straightforward, griddle-seared patties are juicy and bursting with beefy flavor.” – Time Out New York, “The Best of Cheap Eats Issue.”

Some of their beers include:

 

Red Rooster Ale: Caramel and Munich malts give our flavorful red ale a rich toffee and roasted nut character; we top off this beer with a healthy addition of American hops for a perfect balance. 

Indiana Pale Ale: IPA’s are popular for their zesty hop spice and rich malt character. Ours does not disappoint! With a deep golden color, full malt flavor, and aggressive bittering hops, this unique ale is one to enjoy. 

Farmer Jon’s Oatmeal Stout: This hearty, creamy stout has hints of espresso and an elegant dark chocolate sweetness. Great American Beer Festival Medal Winner Gold 1997, Bronze 1995, Silver 1999.

HB Burger is minutes from all the major Broadway Theaters in Time Square, perfect for a pre-show cocktail or casual dinner with your guest after the performance.

The main bar is from the Commodore Hotel in downtown Manhattan circa 1870, with antique leaded glass arches.  The cellar bar was a speakeasy during the prohibition.

As the Hall is a tribute to the Student Art League of NY, there are murals, paintings & sketches throughout. The Hall is furnished with ornate lighting & dozens of variations of antique flatirons including some fueled by coal, kerosene, and gasoline.

The beer steins which adorn the restaurant are only a small part of Hall’s collection. Flatiron features their own special beers on tap, making it as one of the best places to sample craft beer in NYC. Interestingly, most of Flatiron’s special cocktails are derived from a bartending manual of a local bartender’s great uncle.

Some of the beers include:

Golden Lager: Smooth Mellow Maltiness, Light, Clean Finish 5% ABV

Black Stout:  Light Stout, Rich Malt, and Chocolate 6% ABV

Grape Expectations AleNY State Concord Grapes, Dry Finish, Strong Grape Aroma. 7.2% ABV

Their menu is designed for lunch, dinner and late night with bar-friendly variations on classics like Sashimi Tacos and Beer Cellar Nachos with a wide selection of salads, sandwiches, and entrees. The Pastrami Reuben Spring roll is unforgettable.

With large communal tables as well as nooks and crannies for a bit of privacy with someone special, the hall has something for everyone. In addition, the downstairs Beer Cellar has a relaxed atmosphere that can accommodate larger groups.

Visit Flatiron Hall for the city’s best Happy Hour – Monday – Friday from 4-7pm to sample some of their summer ales.

 

4. Houston Hall

 

Houston Hall is the hottest Beer Hall in NYC with an authentic turn of the steel mill motif. It was converted from a 112-year-old garage that was formerly rented by the FBI.

Enter through a cobblestone tunnel and find an enormous space with 50ft. wood beams & trusses, towering antique mirrors on muddled brick walls and original garage floor with parking lines still visible. Old world steelwork and vintage furnishings surround long communal tables.
