“Top Beer Bar in the United States”
What is a Blind Tiger? According to historians, the term originated in the 1800’s, when blue laws restricted the sale of alcohol. Bar owners charged a cover to see a blind tiger, or some other imaginary attraction, while providing “complimentary” alcohol. While speakeasys often had food and entertainment, most blind tigers were dives, serving little more than beer, liquor, and imaginary creatures. Though we still like to keep it simple, the main attraction at our Blind Tiger is real: we feature an ever-changing array of our favorite craft beers, along with a nice selection of wines, all paired with foods from our acclaimed kitchen. Craft beer is our focus, however. And our passion. We see our favorite brewers as artists, and the Blind Tiger as their gallery. To us, some brewers are like Van Gogh: poor, starving, passionate, committed, brilliant, and, to the mainstream observer, a little mad. They don’t choose to make beer; they’re driven to do it. They’re on a mission, and they don’t care if anyone follows them. They would brew for free, and very often do. Other brewers are more like Picasso: successful, controversial, game-changers who have chosen brewing as the best way to change the world. Closet evangelicals, their mission is to banish blandness and mediocrity. All of our favorite beers seem to reflect a personal vision. Some brewers favor hops, some malt, while others do everything they can to balance the two. Some are extremists, some incredibly subtle, but all of them tend to make beers with distinct personalities, which often reflect their own attitudes.
