Finding the Best Craft Beer in Midtown

Midtown Manhattan's Hotel Mela warmly welcomes business travelers. Located near Broadway, Hotel Mela offers a Business Traveler Package that's perfect for those in town on a short stay, including dry cleaning for one business apparel item and 20% off the best available rates (conditions apply). After a full day of meetings, why not trade in your tie for more comfortable fashion and head to one of Midtown's mouthwatering craft beer establishments. We've gather up information on a few we think you'll enjoy. Ginger Man. 11 E 36th St. New York, NY 10016 The Ginger Man serves up 70 taps and over 150 different bottled beers. Sit down at the bar and get schooled from one of the Ginger Man's knowledgeable bartenders or take your fresh brew to the lounge area and people watch. You'll find a very welcoming atmosphere, an outstanding beer selection, and decent eats. House of Brews 302 W 51st St. New York, NY 10019 Don't let the macros like Bud throw you offer. The House of Brews boasts a solid selection of fine microbrews. Order up some ribs, and ask your server for a local beer recommendation. It won't be long before you forget about the hustle and bustle of your day. Pony Bar 637 10th Ave. New York, NY 10036 Long live the Pony. It hasn't been around as long as some of our other selections, but you really can't pass this place by. It's a must-do. Pony Bar offers an impressive 20 rotating taps and 2 cask engines of American craft beer. We appreciate that a good beer can get ruined quickly if served through unsanitary lines. The Pony Bar's taps are cleaned and serviced regularly, ensuring a quality brew every time. Relax, rejuvenate and learn a bit about Manhattan's beer culture when you check out one (or all) of our recommendations. Cheers!
