Jezza's Top Picks
My 'Top picks' are the outstanding beer places in NYC at any given moment. Here you will normally find something exceptional or out of the ordinary - so a larger than average beer range; usually a good mix of beers as well as imports; top quality service and a good ambience and/or surroundings. In short, these pubs will all be offering the best that can be found in the NYC beer scene at the moment.
Note that we regularly update what constitutes a top pick so places can be relegated from the list if their beer range dips or there are other significant changes.
These pubs are not quite (yet) to the level of a Top Pick, but they are ones to watch. They are very much worth a visit if you have the time.
