Not only can you participate in just about every sport imaginable at Chelsea Piers, you can rehydrate afterward at the city’s largest microbrewery. The cavernous Chelsea Brewing Company provides an insider’s view of the beer-making process (glass windows show the brewers at work) and a ringside seat on the Hudson River. Malty Sunset Red Ale is always on offer, or sample a seasonal brew like the refreshing, bubbly April Showers Spring Wheat.
