Best Brews of New York City

Time Out says

Brookfield Place's Winter Garden will transform into a biergarten for the next two weeks for its annual Best Brews fest.

You can help decide which local brewery has the most outstanding beer by sipping beer from 15 companies like Circa Brewing Co., LIC Beer Project, and the women-led Talea, which will go head-to-head for the title of "Best."

While you're downing your suds, you can order eats from BFPL restaurants, including Northern Tiger, Num Pang, Skinny Pizza, Blue Ribbon Sushi, Parm, Chopt, For Five Coffee, Umami Burger, Mighty Quinn’s and Seamore’s via the Ritual app.

And don't forget to raise your glasses as you drink because all beer sales will go toward Leave No Trace, which spreads awareness about how to care for the great outdoors.
