Need good beer and good food in East Village
Beer-loving uncle is visiting East Village. Chow can be anything, as long as it's good and can be accompanied by good beer, preferably but not necessarily draft.
I know some good places for beer in the east village - DBA, and I know some great placed for food, but I don't know alot that have both. How about German - ZumSchneider is fun, good beer and pretty good German food - I am not a german cuisine connosiuer.
I second Zum Schneider I've only had snacks there, but it was good for what it was.
If you care to venture out of the EV, I would recommend Walkers in Tribeca - great beer on tap, old school atmosphere and the food is good.
The Telephone Bar on 2nd Avenue and E. 9th Street has a great beer selection and really good pub grub.
Another vote for Zum Schneider. You can order beer by what size you want, and they have "appropriate" glasses for your beer selection. My brother-in-law, who is a beer snob and proud of it, heads straight to that bar whenever he is in the city. The food is Bavarian, with lots of sausages. I love sausages. And the O' Batzda Bavarian Cheese spread is very tasty with a pretzel.
Here's a link to the beer page on their website to give you an idea of what they've got:
And FYI, they take cash only so stop by the ATM on your way in.
