Beer Authority is just across from Port Authority, and it’s secretly one of the biggest bars in the area. Walk inside, and you’ll just see a tiny room with a small bar - but up a flight of stairs there’s a huge open space filled with tables. One more floor up, there's a rooftop. Drink-wise, there are over 100 beers on draft (in addition to a full bar).
