Best Beer Bar


The 30-deep tap list alone makes Fools Gold far from an average beer bar. Consider, too, its broad bottle offering and its commitment to bringing in the best beers from New York and beyond. Its first month alone was marked by numerous coveted pours, including Cisco Brewers’ Rantom Scoot and Maine Beer Company’s Mo Ale, and opening night showcased Hill Farmstead Nordic Saison, Peekskill Brett IPA, and numerous Cigar City casks. Since then, it’s rotated in hard-to-find beers from just-launched breweries and established craft brands. Add to that its $1 oyster happy hours and a board of gourmet sandwiches (hot corned beef topped with Gruyère, sauerkraut, and beer-grain mustard) and appetizers (Sriracha peas and house-made beef jerky), and you’ll see why it’s easy to sit here and let the hours slip away.
