If you want to learn about micro breweries (or brag about how much you already know about them), this is the best place in Harlem to do it. Harlem Hops serves a lot hard-to-find beer, specifically from small-batch breweries and businesses owned by people of color. And if you don’t really care about the different flavor notes in East and West Coast IPAs, you’ll appreciate their backyard - it has tables made out of barrels and a big mural wall.
