Imbibing alfresco at one of New York’s best outdoor bars is one of our favorite things to do in summer, or at least when the weather gets warmer, especially at a craft beer hall or beer garden in NYC. We're excited that there's a growing emphasis on experimentation, sour ales, and lower ABV booze in New York right now. And what's better than a sunny day with cold brews and summer drinks?
