My husband's going to be pleased when I propose an afternoon of beer tasting as birthday gift. But we're not so beer-savvy. Can you all suggest a few stops--in the same general neighborhood--where we can create our own pub crawl / tasting menu? I'm thinking a variety of approaches might be fun: German restaurant, Japanese place, Korean, Irish pub. Food to accompany our itinerary is possible, but not required. We are in the East Village, where there are many nearby options, but open to other neighborhoods. Thanks for the ideas!
