I don't know what it is about fall that makes me crave craft beer and pub grub over close conversation in a dark, woody space. Beer is on trend right now, which might have something to do with it, but as soon as the temps start to cool a my pseudo-hipster side comes out, begging for flannel and a good brew.

Here are my best three beer bars in the city right now, perfect for a cool fall night:
From the guys that brought us the city's hit cocktail spot, Death + Co., this East Village nook is the ultimate in beer bars. "Rare, new and unusual beer" is their motto, and they do not disappoint.
This has been a favorite since I first moved to New York. Serving up all American beers, the scene here is always fun and the prices can't be beat. Two locations: Hell's Kitchen and the Upper East Side.
An all-wood tavern in Nolita, this bar has an extensive list for beer snobs and newbies alike as well a full menu of hearty plates to pair with your brew.
