Minnesota’s big craft beer golden age is currently underway, with dozens of independent brewers offering IPAs, Stouts, Pilsners and even ciders (with food trucks typically on site).

In the title I am talking about fall in NYC and not the holiday season Andy Williams crooned on his 1963 album.
Autumn in New York is my favorite time of the year. Gone are the days of oppressive heat and sweat soaked subway walls.
