Blind tiger was there before everyone else figured out that craft beer was religion. It's a cozy place, not much seating room. Read: not good for groups. The tap list always has new and interesting finds and is well balanced in terms of styles.

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
