America's Best Beer Bars

Slide 8 of 17

Blind Tiger Ale House, New York City

The term “blind tiger” refers to a speakeasy, but this old-school West Village pub is far from under the radar. Built from salvaged 19th-century wood, the bar appears to have been in operation for ages, though it’s only been in its current location since 2006. Both eager NYU students and beer enthusiasts flock to the unpretentious tavern to sample 28 mostly domestic drafts and expertly curated bottles. Appropriately, many of the selections are New York-sourced, like Red Ale from Three Heads Loopy and Brooklyn Brewery’s light, wheaty Weisse. blindtigeralehouse.com
