If you like to drink obscure beers and eat various dairy products, you’ll be a fan of Milk & Hops. It’s a little place in Chelsea that looks kind of like a fancy grocery store, with a bar inside where you can eat a sandwich or a meat and cheese plate, and fridges filled with a bunch of different beers you won’t find at your average bodega. Bring a friend who sometimes talks about different kinds of beer even when you aren’t interested, and hang out for an hour two at one of the tables along the wall.
