When Dave Brodrick, the founder of the Blind Tiger Alehouse, addressed the crowd at the 15th anniversary party for the downtown NYC craft beer pioneer, he said it felt more like 15 seconds since it first opened its doors on Hudson and W. 10th St. Much has changed since then. The original location is now a Starbucks (the Tiger moved a bit east a few years ago and is now on Bleecker and Jones). And there's certainly a lot more craft beer to choose from than there was in 1997.
But one thing that has been consistent throughout Blind Tiger's history is Dave's commitment to creating a warm, friendly bar atmosphere and finding the best brews to share with his devoted following of regular beer compatriots.
