The Beer Necessities

On the corner of Rivington and Ludlow Streets on the Lower East Side, Spitzer’s Corner is to beer what ‘Inoteca located opposite is to wine and cheese. I don’t know how many beers they have on draught, but it’s a lot. Most are local micro-breweries, and often have fantastic names: it’s fun ordering a Smutty Nose Ale or an Old Arrogant Bastard. The place gets busy but in a good way — nice crowd of young, cool professionals, no fratty types looking to hit or be hit on — and they open up the windows when it’s warm. Great fries, too.
