I'm a boy, I don't like beer. I like cocktails. But I'm slowly learning to drink beer. The stepped into the pony bar. Seemed chill. That's a good start. Next, I looked at the extensive beer menu on the wall. Omg, how was I supposed to choose? I guess I could choose it based on alcoholic content- pick the strongest one DUH. Or choose it based on names. I chose some sort of Brooklyn Lager, I figured I should drink some local beer. I didn't know my beer was going to be dark. I don't like dark beers. I should have known that a Brooklyn Lager would be dark! It was quite good though, slightly smoky. I guess next time I'll ask the bartender to help me choose a beer.

Walked into the bar and I immediately loved the atmosphere. It had a certain sophistication about it that made you feel you weren't just there to drink beer and get drunk, but to critique each beer tasted. Bartender was awesome. Let us try a bunch of different beers as samples. Compared to the bar up the street (Rudy's) that boasts cheap beer and free food, spare yourself the horrible experience and go to the Pony Bar instead. I wish I didn't live in Nebraska or else I'd come back to this place many more times. Keep it up.

You'd be forgiven if you looked up from your craft beer and thought you were in Austin. Saddle up on a stool at a barrel or sit at the long, low "kids tables" or pony up to the bar. They have a good beer selection (Bells Oberon FTW) including cask specialities.

Shortly after taking your first sip of a delicious pint, you'll hear the glorious ding of a bell followed by joyous shouts of "New Beer!", which I can only liken to valkyries welcoming one of their fiercest warriors home. What you have experienced is the changing of the guard. See, The Pony Bar only stocks one keg of each beer; meaning that once it runs out it's gone and they must rotate in a brand new beer. I've frequented The Pony Bar numerous times with various groups of friends, and it never disappoints. If you like trying many different kinds of beers (mostly local/domestic), this is the place for you.

Walking in here brought ideas of what a neighborhood bar should be. Lively, a large beer collection, and some energetic staff. It was kind of cool to see two people on the same night finish their beer challenge. If I remember correctly, they have to have ordered all the types of beer at the bar. Typical burgers and fries available.

One of the best bars in the city (IMHO), certainly the best midtown bar west of 9th avenue. Come here for a fantastic selection of beer on tap (always rotating), and VERY reasonably priced pints.
