It’s summer, it’s Friday – you know what to do…

Have a cocktail of course! Now I love me a hot toddy in the blistering cold temps but dining al fresco or rooftop with a cold libation in my hand gets me every time. So at bars across New York City, creative bartenders are harnessing the hoppy goodness of beer to balance out craft cocktails on their menus and serving up new ways to enjoy a nice cold one. Below are some delicious beer options that will hit the spot this summer whether you are a hardcore beer enthusiast or just looking for a tasty twist on your favorite brew.  Post-work, post-gym, post-brunch, post-anything, these are the cocktails you need to try for the summer.
