Liverwurst at Loreley

5. Loreley A beer hall with roots in Cologne, Loreley has 12-plus beers on tap (its menu features Kölsch beer from Gaffel, one of the biggest producers of the brew in Cologne), an exceptional liverwurst platter, and a small but charming back garden. 7 Rivington Street, 212-253-7077

4. Zum Schneider At this Alphabet City mini beer hall, you can pig out on Bavarian specialties--beer from top-notch breweries like Hofbräuhaus Traunstein, weisswurst, and obatzda, a dense cheese spread made with Camembert, brie, and beer and doused with paprika--and then work the food off with a rousing game of foosball in the back room. 107 Avenue C, 212-598-1098
