I checked Artisinal's website & didn't see anything about a beer tasting. Is it an off-the-menu kind of item? Sounds wonderful.

I'm familiar with McSorley's, though it's been several years. It's fun for the kitsch factor and a really cheap beer (at off hours!). Will see if it makes it onto the itinerary. In the meantime, here's what it looked like in 1912: http://bit.ly/u6Eqtg

Thanks for the suggestion! I won't be there on the 13th to see you, but don't sell yourself short re. being a draw.

My husband's going to be pleased when I propose an afternoon of beer tasting as birthday gift. But we're not so beer-savvy. Can you all suggest a few stops--in the same general neighborhood--where we can create our own pub crawl / tasting menu? I'm thinking a variety of approaches might be fun: German restaurant, Japanese place, Korean, Irish pub. Food to accompany our itinerary is possible, but not required. We are in the East Village, where there are many nearby options, but open to other neighborhoods. Thanks for the ideas!
