      Craft Beer on My Mind

      As I sit here, sipping this Summer Weizen Ale from Smuttynose Brewing Company and feeling a heck of a lot better about this work day, I’ll tell you reasons why you, my fellow suds lovers, should be drinking beer soon, too.

      THE EDIBLE GUIDE: Beer Bars

      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.

      Beer Here? Brewed Awakening Author Josh Bernstein Takes Us on a Video Tour of Three Surprisingly Good Pubs

      Brewed Awakening—the new book chronicling America’s growing craft beer movement—was penned by Joshua Bernstein, a Brooklynite, beer brainiac and occasional Edible contributor: In fact, he’s working on a profile of Chelsea Brewing Company for Edible Manhattan January Drinks issue right now. The book is one of the top hits on our holiday gift list, so given his knowledge of craft beer, we asked Bernstein to belly up at three surprising best of class bars in Manhattan for our weekly NY1 segment. (Surprising because everyone knows that Brooklyn is the borough leading the call to great craft beer.) His sudsy trip through lower Manhattan airs today and Sunday. Can’t catch his picks on the small screen? No worries, you can find out where he goes on an even smaller one right here.
