Last night, I was invited by my buddy Topher and the good folks at Google to drink and dine at new Nolita watering hole Randolph Beer. It’s owned and operated by the same folks that run the Randolph cocktail bar just a few doors down.
First off, I loved the decor — it’s all wooden booths, half barrels masquerading as chairs, and antique hardware accents. The staff was pretty chill, as well. Everyone was helpful, knowledgeable, attentive, and (thankfully) swift. My bartenders answered questions about the different selections before allowing me to try the Southern Tier, a delicious IPA with a sweet tinge to it. And the Southern rock soundtrack certainly kept things lively.
Finally — and, dare I say, most importantly — they have a decent selection of craft beers and wine. It’s like Pokemon: gotta try ’em all. Okay, that was somewhat lame, but you get the gist!
All in all, I was pretty pleased with Randolph Beer. It’s certainly a spot I plan on visiting again. Oh, and shout out to the very lovely Angela, who recommended the delicious Cheesy Brat, seen above!
