The Beer Drinker's Dilemma

For this week's New York magazine, I contributed a couple articles to get New Yorkers thirsting for the just-arrived outdoor-drinking season. To start, I wrote up five of the tastiest canned beers to hit the NYC market, including Avery Joe's Premium American Pilsner and Sixpoint's the Crisp. Secondly, I surveyed some of the city's newest, and best, spots to sip some craft beer outside, name-checking Eataly's Birreria and Greenpoint's terrific and criminally unsung t.b.d. It's a thirsty job, sure, but I'm glad I get to do it.
