Take one look at the beer list scribbled on the chalkboard here and you’ll realize this isn’t the kind of place to order a Bud Light. Blind Tiger Ale House focuses on microbrews, including a large selection of New York’s own beers on tap. We love the silky texture of the oatmeal stout Sixpoint Otis (made in Brooklyn), but there’s plenty of great finds on the menu here. Beers like the Empire White Aphro and the Sierra Nevada Southern Hemisphere are what make this ale house so unique, so we recommend you step out of your comfort zone and sample the spectrum. The adventurous attitude shouldn’t stop with beer. We can’t think of a better pairing than tall beer and beer braised chicken and chorizo tacos. If that’s not your guy, there’s an Asian salmon burger with kimchi or lamb burger with tzatziki (our personal favorite). You’d be hard pressed to find a bar that serves up more interesting beer and grub than Blind Tiger.
