LOWER MANHATTAN — Business is booming for beer in New York City.

Taprooms and breweries are appearing again across the five boroughs.

New York City has a long brewing tradition that dates back hundreds of years.

Changes to New York State laws in the past decade have created growth in the industry.

For the past three years, Brookfield Place in Lower Manhattan has sponsored a "Best Brews" competition to showcase beers born in the boroughs.

At the final event Thursday, Talea was declared the winner.
