Something's brewing in Hell's Kitchen. Literally.
Where you'd typically find a rowdy 10th Avenue bar pushing woo-woo shots and pumping Britney, you'll find a

at 6 sharp.
Let's start with what you can't get at the Pony: foreign beers, beers in bottles (except for Bud and Bud
Light) or anything typically displayed on a blinking neon sign. Instead, drop by with a few friends when
you're looking for the latest in black wheat beers and prepare to while away an evening sampling offbeat
ales (Captain Lawrence Fresh Chester Pale Ale) and intense IPAs (Leviathan Imperial IPA at 11.8% booziness)

The space—inspired by an old photo of Neil Young—is decked with an old canoe, the aforementioned
Neil photo and a few equestrian knickknacks, and anchored by two large beer barrels that double as communal
tables (and inspiration). Classic rock and Americana will be on the radio, there'll be some brats and
sandwiches to keep you on your feet, and, best of all, you can pick up a growler of your favorite porter for
your to-go pleasure.
