With summer just two days away, temperatures are rising and so is our thirst. What better way to beat the heat than a cold beer? In our Edible Guide, you’ll find links to over 20 beer bars in Manhattan and Brooklyn where you can grab a draft, a can or a bottle of your favorite brew.

Tonight, Taste the Best Beers in the Northeast Served by Those Who Brewed Them

One of the key events of NYC Craft Beer Week — a citywide fest featuring tastings, dinners, crawls and other craft beer celebrations–is Thursday night’s Brewer’s Choice at City Winery. The four-hour event is special not because 20 harder to find beers from our foodshed will be paired with fantastic food and poured all in one place, but because of who will be doing the pouring: The brewers themselves.
